How should I respond to a Capacity Market Notice?

This is up to the specific market participant, however, it should be noted that there is no formal dispatch mechanism in the Capacity Market. In the event of a CMN being activated it is recommended that industry participants make themselves aware of other operational information available to the industry closer to the time the notice is active from.

Under the rules of the Capacity Market capacity providers are needed to only generate during a System Stress Event. A Capacity Market Notice indicates only a higher than normal probability of a System Stress Event occurring where it is triggered because of a "Margin below threshold set out in Capacity Market Rules".
