RPA Seminar: "Trading electricity from the small generators’ perspective – NETA and BETTA", 24 June 2003 28/05/2003 11:43:51

The New Electricity Trading Arrangements were introduced at the end of March 2001, and the detrimental impact on renewable and CHP generators was widely publicised. Two years later and the process of rolling NETA out into Scotland – the British Electricity Transmission and Trading Arrangements – has begun.
The current trading environment is less hostile than the system introduced two years ago. Over 129 modifications have been proposed, and 96 have been implemented. An IPPR seminar concluded that the impact of NETA on renewable energy had been overstated. Is this justified? Other commentators have warned that CO2 emissions have increased due to more plant being part-loaded. To what extent is this happening? Most renewable generators, unless they operate under NFFO contracts, sell their output along with ROCs under yearly contracts. Can they expect the power element of their sales to increase in value as a result of the modifications?
The RPA is running a seminar co-sponsored by IMechE on the afternoon of 24 June which will explore the issues. A discount is available on the attendance fee to RPA and IMechE members. Please find flyer with registration form in both Word and PDF formats below.
