Consultation description

This consultation is now closed.

The Government response, published 15 December 2010, sets out changes made by the Secretary of State to the Connection and Use of System Code (CUSC) and the Grid Code, in order to ensure the availability of a generator build option on an enduring basis. Changes are also likely to be required to the System Operator - Transmission Owner Code (STC) to fully implement our policy decisions - the response sets out how those changes might be progressed.

The document also outlines the approach to further refinements to the enduring regime, including to the enduring Offshore Transmission Owner (OFTO) tender process.

In addition, letters have been sent to the owner of the CUSC and the Grid Code informing them of the changes made to those codes and instructing them to publish the changes by 31 December 2010, from which date they will take effect.

The original consultation was on proposed amendments to the Connection and Use of System Code (CUSC) and the Grid Code considered necessary to implement changes to the legal and regulatory framework of providing a generator build option as part of the enduring offshore transmission regime and to provide additional clarity on the OFTO build options.
