  • Meeting Summary

    On 3 May 2022 Ofgem published its final decision (the ‘Access SCR Decision’) and direction (the ‘Access SCR Direction’) to implement the Access Significant Code Review (SCR) which can be found here.

    The Access SCR Decision focuses on two main areas: changes to the connection charging boundary for demand and generation distribution network connections; and changes to better define non-firm access arrangements at distribution. The four DCUSA Change Proposals detailed below seek to make the necessary changes to the DCUSA to implement Ofgem’s Access SCR Decision as well as to enable DNOs to deliver against the Access SCR Direction in line with the obligations placed on them in their Distribution Licences.

    • DCP 404 ‘Access SCR: Changes to Terms of Connection for Curtailable Customers’
    • DCP 405 ‘Access SCR: Managing Curtailable Connections between Licensed Distribution Networks’
    • DCP 406 ‘Access SCR: Changes to CCCM’
    • DCP 407 ‘Access SCR: Speculative Development’

    We are therefore issuing the four consultations located in the ‘Related Documents’ section below on behalf of the DCP 404, 405, 406 and 407 Working Groups who have drafted the consultations to gather views and feedback from market participants on the solutions that have been developed.

    Responses should be provided using the form attached to each of the consultations and emailed to [email protected]by no later than close of play on 05 September 2022.
