Dispatch Transparency

Dispatch Transparency

Balancing Costs

This dataset is a component of the Forward Plan 2020-21 commitment to increase the transparency of our operational decision making in the Balancing Mechanism (BM). It includes the publication of actions taken in the BM, reasons for them and includes a methodology document for the process.

Note - Due to issues with the data we don’t currently have the dispatch transparency figures for the 10th May. These will be back-filled once the data becomes available.
