To deliver on our commitment to providing enhanced, customisable data we are migrating the aging Balancing Mechanism Reporting Service platform to our Kinnect Insights Solution. Through easier access to data, it will support our users who want to develop new products and services. In June 2021, we started the migration with the first iteration going live in October 2021. Once development is completed and we are satisfied that the Insights Solution is delivering on the needs of our customers, BMRS will be decommissioned in 2023.

Video introducing the Insights Solution

A large part of Elexon’s role is to ensure that BSC Parties have access to open and clear data on the wholesale market. As set out in the Overview, this is leading to the replacement of the industry-renowned BMRS with the Insights Solution, as part of Elexon Kinnect.

To support innovators and increasing levels of digitalisation across the sector, we need to provide access to a richer, more up to date and detailed data service than the BMRS. The Insights Solution responds to this challenge. Similarly to the other Kinnect Solutions, the Insights Solution is a cloud-based service underpinned by high performing Application Programming Interfaces (APIs). It leverages storage and processing capabilities at scale and will provide customers with the ability to ‘self serve’ data requests and perform ad-hoc analysis to suit their own needs.
