This letter sets out our decisions on changes to the Capacity Market Rules (the “Rules”) pursuant to Regulation 77 of the Electricity Capacity Regulations 2014 (the "Regulations").

Our decisions take into account the 41 formal responses we received to our statutory consultation on amending the Rules. We are publishing these responses alongside the original consultation document.

We are publishing a Schedule which sets out the changes to the Rules implementing our decisions. These changes will come into effect once they have been presented before Parliament, alongside changes being brought forward by DECC. The exact timings are subject to the Parliamentary timetable.

Section 41(9) of the Energy Act 2013 requires that our amended Rules are presented before Parliament and published. That version is also attached to this page.
