Capacity Market Consultation on Future Improvements

Closes 2 Mar 2020

Opened 3 Feb 2020

Overview

The Commission’s 2019 State aid decision notes that the UK government has committed to implementing a number of improvements to the design of the Capacity Market (CM) to reflect recent market and regulatory developments, including those identified through our recent 5-year-review of the effectiveness of the CM.

This consultation seeks views on proposals to implement 5 of the 6 commitments referenced in the decision, as well as a review of the exclusion from the CM of plants with long-term STOR (short-term operating reserve) contracts and several other minor improvements.

We intend to publish a separate call for evidence on proposals to implement the sixth State aid commitment on enabling cross-border participation in due course.
