DECC Capacity Market stakeholder event - January 2015

A summary of a "lessons learnt” industry stakeholder workshop held by DECC - January 2015



Following the publication of the results of the first Capacity Market (CM) auction on 2 January 2015, the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) held a half-day workshop to gather “lessons learned” from organisations that had participated in the CM process, and other stakeholders. The workshop included a presentation by DECC on the outcomes of the first capacity auction, an update on policy changes to be implemented before the next capacity auction and a presentation by National Grid, the EMR delivery body, on their experience of implementing the CM. This was followed by table discussions where stakeholders were asked for their views on how different aspects of the CM process worked.
