SuccessDescription Pre-qualification & the Auction happened on time Planned dates were met / only moved under an agreed governance process The Auction ran and cleared in 2014 Capacity was procured for delivery year of 2018/19 Pre-qualification ran smoothly and all applicants had the best opportunity to successfully pre-qualify Rules/Guidelines were finalised in time, available to everyone, simple to understand and delivered the results expected Procedures were explained, available to everyone, simple to understand and supportive (e.g. helping not blocking) NG Systems were simple to use; ready on time; seen, tested and understood by applicants in advance; worked as intended and gave the results expected Applicant Systems were ready on time and able to communicate with NG Systems as expected The Auction ran smoothly and all bidders had the best opportunity to secure a capacity agreement As above for Pre-qualification The Auction was “liquid”, included a diverse range of technologies/applicant sizes and offered best value to consumers The Auction Monitor approved the auction outcome Settlement is on schedule for delivery Smooth transfer of data from NG to Elexon Payment/Settlement systems implementation is on track Generators and Suppliers are confident of delivery of fit-for-purpose Settlement systems 2014 CM Implementation Success Factors

8 Feedback Since the auction there have been a number of feedback sessions We have held lessons learnt sessions internally and with the Delivery Partners DECC held an Industry Feedback session Ofgem have commenced their Rule Change Process We have assessed other feedback received during the 2014 process.
Feedback from the 2014 Capacity Auction 9 Ian Nicholas
10 Feedback and Q&A from 2014 Auction Auction FeedbackHow it is being addressed The auction took a long time to run and the rounds could be much shorter Carried out bidder behaviour analysis, likely suggested change would be similar first round and recess with latter rounds being shortened. Target Capacity needed more transparency winter outlook and capacity adequacy reports differed The reporting uses different methods which is explained in the modelling stakeholder engagement, Panel of Technical Experts involvement and DECC. Not clear when the results would be available (intra round results) The auction guidelines will clarify how DECC and NG will report the 2015 auction Why was excess capacity roundedRemove the opportunity to act when the capacity is close to clearing the round.
11 Feedback and Q&A from 2014 Auction Auction FeedbackHow it is being addressed Can the Price maker status be made publicOfgem review and rule change process is looking into this area. DBA and Exit bid function (1yr refurb issue)DECC review and rule change process Information clarity i.e. de rating capacity entering auction DECC review and rule change process/ possibly a review of the CM register summary details.
Feedback from 2014 Prequalification 12 Mark Duffield
13 Prequalification FeedbackHow it is being addressed Late changes to rules caused a lot of problemsDECC and Ofgem are looking to ensure that any changes are made in plenty of time this year. Legal opinion and declaration documents seem over necessary We have proposed a Rule Change to combine the certificates and declarations (P062). A further change has been proposed to remove the legal opinion (P023). Rule 3.4.2 (b) states that a previously provided legal opinion can “roll over” providing the information remains accurate and up to date. Prequalification process is intensiveMany of the rule changes proposed by NGET are intended to streamline the prequalification process. We will continue to work with stakeholders to make prequalification as straightforward as possible. Appeals process seemed a bit formal for typos or missing data The Appeal process is defined in the regulations and, whilst formal, is necessary to process any changes to applications. Feedback and Q&A from 2014 Auction
14 Prequalification FeedbackHow it is being addressed Prequalification for Proven DSR is difficult so had to prequalify as unproven and post a bid bond There are a number of Rule changes proposed in this area (P044, P063 and P082). Complicated interaction between balancing services and the CM – we have proposed some rule changes but it is an area that needs further development with the industry. Settlement periods used as delivery evidence not the same as balancing services evidence DSR have to 'pre qual' for balancing services and it is completely different-can they be aligned Feedback and Q&A from 2014 Auction
15 Stakeholder engagement/General Feedback FeedbackHow it is being addressed Lack of enduring IT System for PrequalificationNew system being developed, will be covered later on the agenda. The system should pre-populate the next pre- qualification application We are planning to prepopulate the system with information submitted during 2014 Need to keep the open comms experienced between industry and NG for new entrants and the next implementation w/shops should cater for the two types of audience; existing and new participants. We have a schedule for future IC events and we will be aiming to cover a range of subjects both for those who have already participated in 2014 and new entrants for 2015. FAQ's not always helpful with mandatory/optional data seemed not to be consistent We recognise there were issues with some of the guidance. Feedback on how to improve them is always welcome and systems and guidance for 2015 will be improved. Free text field in CM register contains sensitive info (i.e. MPAN details) The contents of the CM register is defined in the rules. A number of Rule Changes have been proposed in this area to streamline the Register. Feedback and Q&A from 2014 Auction
