Delay to decision on GB electricity transmission losses

Ofgem notice (3 pages, PDF) that it will not meet the previously intended timetable for deciding on whether to direct a new regime for the allocation of transmission losses under the Balancing and Settlement Code in Great Britain, because:

it would be appropriate for [Ofgem's board] to delay taking its final decisions concerning the proposals until a further review of Oxera's analysis, and the reliance placed upon it, had been undertaken.

Ofgem has queried aspects of this analysis before, e.g. in January 2007. The ELEXON website has a document log.

For further information or advice please contact Franck Latrémolière.
