We have published a decision paper on broadening the definitions of Generating Unit and Intermittent Generating Station, which sets out our decision to amend Parts 1 and 13 of the Electricity Industry Participation Code 2010 (Code). The amendment allows new generating technologies not powered by mechanical force to participate in the electricity spot market and ancillary service markets regulated by the Code.

While this amendment was part of the wider September 2019 Code review programme, we have approved it separately to introduce the change as quickly as possible. Work to complete the other changes in the Code review programme is being progressed.
