Notice under section 7A(9) of the Electricity Act 1989 (as amended) of the proposed transfer of an Electricity Generation held by Jade Power Generation Limited to EDF Energy (Cottam Power) Limited

The Gas and Electricity Markets Authority (‘the Authority’) hereby gives notice pursuant to Section 7A(9) of the Electricity Act 1989 (as amended) (‘the Act’) as follows:

1.  Jade Power Generation Limited, (company registration number 04000132), the registered office of which is 40 Grosvenor Place, Victoria,  London, SW1X 7EN, United Kingdom has written to the Authority seeking its consent under Section 7A of the Act to the transfer of the Electricity Generation licence granted to Jade Power Generation Limited, pursuant to section 6(1)(a) of the Act to EDF Energy (Cottam Power) Limited, (company registration number 04074196), the registered office of which is 40 Grosvenor Place, Victoria,  London, SW1X 7EN, United Kingdom

2.  The Authority proposes to grant consent to the proposed licence transfer which, subject to our consent, is currently proposed to take place on 01 September 2016, for the following reasons:

(i)  Jade Power Generation Limited has applied to the Authority under Section 7A of the Act for the Authority’s consent to the transfer of the Electricity Generation licence to EDF Energy (Cottam Power) Limited; and

3.  Any representations or objections in relation to the proposal by the Authority to grant consent to the proposed licence transfer should be made in writing no later than 09 August 2016 to the Authority, either:
