For RO accredited generators who use solid biomass, biogas or bioliquids to fuel their electricity generation, the RO imposed certain requirements around the provenance of the fuel used and green house gas emissions levels; these requirements are broadly referred to as ‘sustainability criteria’. This Practice Note provides an overview of these requirements.
This Practice Note summarises the Office of Gas and Electricity Markets Supplier of last resort (SoLR) mechanism used to ensure continuity of electricity and gas supply to customers of failed energy suppliers. It includes links to announcements/publications seen when the SoLR mechanism was used for Co-Operative Energy’s 2016 appointment as SoLR for customers of GB Energy Supply, in 2018 Green Star Energy’s appointment as SoLR for the customers of Future Energy, Hudson Energy’s appointment as SoLR for customers of National Gas and Power Limited, Octopus Energy’s appointment as SoLR for customers of Iresa and GEN4U, First Utility’s appointment as SoLR for customers of Usio Energy, Scottish Power’s appointment as SoLR for customers of Extra Energy, Together Energy’s appointment as SoLR for OneSelect, and in 2019 Ovo Energy’s appointment as SoLR for Economy Energy. This Practice Note also looks at the interface between the SoLR regime and the energy supply company administration regime, the interface between the SoLR regime and the Last Resort Supply Payment, and the interface between the SoLR regime and deemed contracts.
This Practice Note explains how third parties can obtain access to electricity networks that are not owned or operated by licensed electricity companies, sometimes known as ‘private wires’.
