Capacity Market 2016

Capacity Market will ensure security of electricity supply by providing a payment for reliable sources of capacity.

Part of the government’s Electricity Market Reform package, the Capacity Market will ensure security of electricity supply by providing a payment for reliable sources of capacity, alongside their electricity revenues, to ensure they deliver energy when needed. This will encourage the investment we need to replace older power stations and provide backup for more intermittent and inflexible low carbon generation sources.

The Capacity Market has also been designed to support the development of more active demand management in the electricity market.
