On 23 September 2020, we received a proposal from the Electricity System Operator (ESO) to define and use Dynamic Containment (DC) as a specific product for energy balancing in Great Britain (GB). This proposal was sent to us in accordance with Article 26 of Commission Regulation (EU) 2017/21952 establishing a guideline on electricity balancing (the EBGL Regulation).

This letter sets out our decision to approve the proposal to define and use DC as a specific product for energy balancing in GB and outlines the necessary next steps that must be taken.
