In May 2018 the CRU published its decision paper on “Reporting and Incentives under Price Review 4” (CER/18/087). CER/18/087 set out a set of twenty decisions for improving reporting and incentives arrangements, covering the totality of the activities undertaken by the Transmission System Operator (TSO), the Transmission Asset Owner (TAO) and the Distribution Systems Operator/Distribution Asset Owner (DSO/DAO) on behalf of current and future customers and market participants.
Decision 8 of CER/18/097 sets out the arrangements for the TSO and TAO in terms of outage management. It states that the TAO may access a “use-it-or-lose it” allowance to fund, by agreement with the TSO – and following appropriate consultation with potentially affected parties – actions to reduce the duration or timing of planned outages at short-notice. The mechanism shall be consulted on by the TSO and TAO prior to implementation.
The TAO and TSO have reviewed the consultation responses and considered the points raised by respondents as outlined in this paper. This decision paper sets out the joint TAO/TSO decision on the mechanism processes. The decision was reviewed by the Commission for Regulation of Utilities in advance of publication.
