In November 2018, we published our minded-to decision and draft Impact Assessment on the Targeted Charging Review (TCR) covering proposed reforms to residual charges and non-locational Embedded Benefits. In June 2019, we consulted on further matters, including updated analysis on the Capacity Market and system costs, and the findings of the Balancing Services Charges Task Force.
We received over 130 responses to our minded-to decision, and a further 23 representations to our supplementary consultation. Having considered these responses, we wish to update stakeholders on refined proposals for reform of residual charges and provide the opportunity to comment on them, before we make our final decision.
Alongside this letter, and following requests from some industry participants, we are also publishing a sensitivity analysis we have undertaken on the implications of our proposed reforms on renewable generation.
We welcome any stakeholder feedback on the proposals and additional analysis outlined in this letter by email to TCR@ofgem.gov.uk by 25 September 2019.
