DCP 161 Ofgem Legistlation 

OFGEM is introducing new legislation from April 2018 which will impose penalty rates on half hourly supplies that exceed their authorised available capacity. Excess penalty rates could be more than three times higher than the standard rate.

Currently any site which exceeds its capacity is charged the same rate as their authorised capacity. 

The new legislation, known as DCP 161, will also impact on supplies that have been or will be converted to half hourly as a result of P272 (profile class 05-08 Non half hourly supplies) migration.

It is important that available capacity and maximum demand levels are monitored to ensure supplies stay within authorised available capacity levels. Powerchange UK Energy Consultants can help clients apply to the networks to increase authorised capacity levels.

The oil market could “drown in oversupply”.

on Thursday, 21 January 2016. Posted in News

The oil market could “drown in oversupply”.

Global shares are falling sharply again after Tuesday’s brief rally, with theFTSE100 entering bear market territory with a 20% decline from its peak.

Another slump in the oil price is the driving force behind the losses, along with gloomy predictions about the global economy from delegates atthe World Economic Forum in Davos.

Brent is 2.5% lower at $28.02 a barrel while US crude is down 3% at $27.57, in a belated reaction to comments from the International Energy Agency on Tuesday thatthe oil market could “drown in oversupply”. The falls have wiped out earlier gains made after figures showing growing oil demand from China, as well as hopes the government would introduce further measures to stimulate the world’s second largest economy ahead of the Chinese new year holidays in early February.
