In this section you can find out about our process for dealing with certain disputes between National Grid Electricity Transmission plc (NGET) and participants in the Capacity Market (CM) and Contracts for Difference (CfD).
Ofgem’s role in resolving disputes
NGET, as the delivery body for EMR, is responsible for making a number of decisions on the CM and CfD. Some of the decisions NGET make are reviewable, in that the appellant can ask NGET to look again at a decision if it thinks it is wrong (a Tier 1 dispute). Following a Tier 1 review, where NGET upholds its original decision, the appellant can ask us to consider NGET’s decision and make a determination (a Tier 2 dispute).
A Tier 2 dispute should be made by submitting an appeal notice to Ofgem. Any dispute must be made within five working days of receiving notice of NGET’s Tier 1 dispute decision (note that ‘working days’ end at 5pm). Please see the Electricity Capacity Regulations 2014 and the Contracts for Difference (Allocation) Regulations 2014 for further information.
Making an appeal to Ofgem
If you wish to appeal against a decision relating to the CM or CfD, follow the steps outlined in Applying for an EMR Tier 2 dispute.
