Transitional arrangements auction

The transitional arrangements auctions will offer targeted support to demand-side response (DSR), to encourage enterprise, and increase levels of participation in the 2 years preceding full Capacity Market delivery in 2018 to 2019.

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.

The transitional arrangements auctions will offer targeted support to demand-side response (DSR), to encourage enterprise, and increase levels of participation in the 2 years preceding full Capacity Market delivery in 2018 to 2019.

Evaluation of Transitional Arrangements

These reports present the findings from Phases 1 and 2 of the evaluation of the Transitional Arrangements (TA) for Demand-Side Response (DSR) and small-scale distribution-connected generation.

An evaluation was commissioned in order to understand how the scheme was working and the impacts of the first TA auction. It was split into two phases:

  • the first ran from January to July 2016 and examined participation in the first TA auction
  • the second examined the delivery of capacity arising from the first TA auction during the winter period in the 2016/2017 delivery year.
