The provisional results are not final as the Secretary of State will commence his review of the auction and will take into consideration the full findings of the auction monitor. If the Secretary of State is satisfied that there are no grounds for annulling the auction, in accordance with regulation 27 of the Capacity Market Regulations 2014, the Delivery Body will publish the final auction results on the delivery body website. Regulation 27 requires the Secretary of State to form a view within 7 working days about whether the auction should be annulled. We have decided that the Secretary of State will take all of this permitted time and for the avoidance of doubt the review will not be concluded any earlier than the allotted time. The delivery body will publish final results 8 working days after the auction clears.
