Exit substitution

Exit capacity substitution is a mechanism that facilitates the permanent transfer of unsold baseline exit capacity on the gas National Transmission System (NTS) at one or more exit points, to an NTS exit point where incremental capacity in excess of baseline has been requested.

Under its Gas Transporter Licence, National Grid Gas is responsible for the Exit Capacity Substitution Methodology Statement which sets out how this is managed.
