What is the purpose of the Capacity Market Notice website?

National Grid Electricity System Operator (ESO) has an obligation to report events that may lead to the occurrence of a System Stress Event on the GB electricity transmission system. The ESO will publish notices on this website specific to the Capacity Market based on available information in real time or subsequent to any potential demand control events.

This is a requirement under the Capacity Market Rules associated with the commencement of the Electricity Capacity Market within Great Britain from 01 October 2016.
