Electricity hedge disclosure
Industry participants need to disclose risk management contract information using the electricity hedge disclosure system website.
Every participant who submits hedge information must certify they have disclosed information accurately. They need to complete and submit a hedge disclosure declaration certificate by 30 June (as per clause 13.230 of the Code).
Spot price risk disclosure
The stress testing regime requires disclosing participants in the wholesale electricity market to apply a set of standard stress tests to their market position. Disclosing participants are persons who:
- consume electricity that is conveyed to them directly from the national grid
- buy electricity from the clearing manager.
Disclosing participants need to prepare a spot price risk disclosure statement quarterly to their Board and to an independent registrar appointed by us.
Wholesale market information disclosure
Wholesale market participants are obliged to make disclosure information available when they become aware of it.
Disclosure information is information that is about the participant, that is held by the participant, and that the participant expects, or ought reasonably to expect, will have (or is likely to have) a material impact on prices in the wholesale market if made available to the public.
Electricity sector legislation is complex and technical. See our guidance on industry‑specific best practice.
