Transmission Access – System Operator Release of Short-term Entry Rights

Modification status: Concluded

Last updated: 25 September 2018

It is proposed that National Grid would be permitted to release additional entry rights in operational timescales, the short term. These short-term entry rights would be released only when National Grid believes there is spare capacity, where spare capacity is defined in economic terms as capacity for which the ex ante reserve price exceeds the associated buyback risk.
