This letter sets out our decisions on changes to the Capacity Market Rules (the “Rules”) pursuant to Regulation 77 of the Electricity Capacity Regulations 2014 (the “Regulations”). These decisions follow our Five Year Review First Policy Consultation issued on 16 April 2019.

Our decisions take into account the 29 responses we received to our statutory consultation on amending the Rules. These responses will be published shortly alongside the original consultation document.

These Rule changes will come into effect when laid before Parliament, ahead of the 2019 Prequalification Window. Annex A sets out the changes to the Rules implementing our decisions.

We will be shortly publishing a Five Year Review report, along with a Forward Work Plan that will act as a signpost for planned future work streams.
