CAP165: Transmission Access – Finite Long-term Entry Rights

Introduction of temporally defined finite long-term entry access rights, and associated user commitment.

It is proposed that existing generators would nominate the number of (whole financial) years for which they require long-term entry access rights to the GB transmission system. This would be underpinned by user commitment in the form of a liability to pay associated charges and a requirement for financial security to be put in place. This will be developed during the assessment of the proposed amendment, in accordance with the Best Practice Guidelines for Gas and Electricity Network Operator Credit Cover. The commitment would be for any period requested by the user (i.e. there would be no rolling time limit), and rights could be extended by application at any time.
