Our final 2024/25 business plan is now live

Elexon Business Plan 2024/25 front cover image

We have published the final version of our 2024/2025 business plan, setting out how our work will contribute to and support progress to Net Zero.

Our thanks go to companies that have provided feedback on the plan. Your views were taken into account when the Board made its final decision on the plan, at its March 2024 meeting.

Elexon’s Board has approved a budget of £119.0m for 2024/25, an increase of £3.1m compared with £115.9m which was proposed in the draft plan in December 2023.

The budget covers all Elexon activity including that for the Kinnect Programme, Helix Programme and the Market-wide Half Hourly Settlement (MHHS) Programme. The increase of £3.1m is due to the need to strengthen testing for both the end-to-end HHS process and migration readiness, within the Helix Programme.

Our corporate strategy themes

We have structured our business plan in line with the five themes of our 2023 to 2025 corporate strategy:

  • Delivering service excellence and customer value
  • Delivering strategic programmes
  • Transforming code management
  • Strengthening industry engagement to drive more value in what we deliver
  • Developing our people.

Our strategy centres on our transforming energy code management, and cementing our position as a central energy markets leader by 2026. Our corporate purpose remains serving at the heart of the energy industry, driving a path to Net Zero. We also want to be recognised by customers and stakeholders for our excellence, innovation, speed and value for money.

Updates to the plan since the draft version

We have made some changes to the text for the plan, following the feedback we received.

These include:

  • Providing an explanation for the increase in headcount for Elexon in 2024/25 (page 39)
  • Adding total project budget figures for the MHHS and Helix Programmes to table 2.5 (page 41) to aid comparisons
  • Stating that we need to see the outcome of Ofgem’s work on a trust framework for consumer smart meter data sharing before we can develop our plans for HH data sharing, and setting out any costs associated with this.
