ELEXON is vital to the smooth operation of the wholesale electricity market. We compare how much electricity generators and suppliers said they would produce or consume with what they produced or consumed, using metered volumes. We work out a price for the difference and transfer funds accordingly, and this involves handling £1.5 billion of market participants’ funds each year.
The governance surrounding this are set out in the Balancing and Settlement Code (BSC), which is effectively a multiparty contract that ELEXON administers while providing and procuring the services required to deliver it. Our expertise and impartiality ensure our customers have confidence that the BSC is operated both efficiently and accurately. We operate on a not for profit basis, and we believe this ensures we deliver market-leading customer service that sets us apart from other code administrators.
