Under the Charging Futures arrangements, Ofgem has asked the Electricity System Operator (ESO) to establish and lead a focussed review of balancing services charges.

The Task Force will inform the direction of balancing services charges based on assessing whether:

  • there is value in seeking to improve cost-reflective signals through BSUoS, or
  • BSUoS should be treated as a cost recovery charge
