GB electricity trading arrangements (BETTA)RSS feed

BETTA stands for British electricity trading and transmission arrangements. It combines an extension to Scotland of the Balancing and Settlement Code (BSC) with the connection and use of system code (CUSC), a GB-wide transmission charging policy, a system operator transmission owner code (STC) and a GB-wide grid code.

The Balancing and Settlement Code implements NETA, the new electricity trading arrangements which replaced the Electricity Pool of England and Wales in 2001.
