Please note that due to a decision by Ofgem to reject Modification 0818 - Releasing of unused capacity under a specific set of circumstances, XRN5602 has been withdrawn.
This change was raised to deliver the requirements set out under UNC Modification 0818 - Releasing of unused capacity under a specific set of circumstances. This Modification has been raised to release unused capacity (only where an SMP meets a specific criteria).
The Change Proposal will implement a process to deliver the Modification 0818 requirements which involves the following:
- A DNO can request that a Shipper reduces a SMPs capacity if the SMP meets a strict criteria and is on an area of the network with restricted capacity available to other Registered Users / end consumers. Please note, the criteria which the SMP would be required to meet is outlined in the Solution section of Modification 0818.
- The relevant Shipper of the SMP will have the opportunity to appeal the reduction in capacity.
- If following the appeal process, a capacity reduction is still required, the Shipper should submit a Supply Point Amendment to reduce the capacity from 01 October in the relevant year.
- If the relevant Shipper does not submit a successful Supply Point Amendment to reduce the capacity to the DNO agreed values by 31 October, the CDSP will reduce the capacity on their behalf.
- MOD 818 is a material change and subject to Ofgem approval.
For further details on the criteria for a site to meet the 0818 process and the appeal process / timelines, please see the Modification which can be found here: https://www.gasgovernance.co.uk/0818
