Consultation description

In January 2019, we published a consultation on the future for small-scale low-carbon generation (part A), which proposed the introduction of a mandatory supplier-led route to market: the Smart Export Guarantee (SEG). Under the SEG, government would legislate to require suppliers to remunerate small-scale low-carbon generators for the electricity they export to the grid.

Part B of the consultation proposes the modifications to electricity supply licence conditions which would be required to introduce a SEG. It is primarily of interest to organisations who are (or may in future be) bound by the electricity supply licence conditions, but we welcome comments from anyone with an interest in the future of small-scale electricity generation.

If you want to provide comments directly on the Licence conditions text, please download the document and annotate using tracked changes.
