Advance Notice of Planned Modifications to Electricity Supply and Electricity Generation Licences

Advance notice of planned modifications to Electricity Supply Licences and Electricity Generation Licences in Ireland under the Electricity Regulation Act, 1999
In accordance with licence modification procedures set out in Section 20 and 22 of the Electricity Regulation Act, 1999, the Commission for Energy Regulation (CER) is to modify the existing electricity supply licences and electricity generation licences granted under Section 14 of the Electricity Regulation Act, 1999.
The reason for the licence modifications is that the Single Electricity Market (SEM) is undergoing significant change due to European legislative requirements.  A number of policy decisions have been made by the SEM Committee to implement the changes to the market on the island of Ireland, and some of these policy changes require a modification to certain licence conditions.  Further information relating to the new wholesale arrangements in the Single Electricity Market may be found at the following website
The formal process for modification of licences is planned to commence in June 2017. Prior to the commencement of this process, the CER intends to engage with licence holders to provide further information about the proposed licence changes. To facilitate engagement with licence holders, the CER will hold meetings on 13th, 14th and 15th of March 2017.
Further to the above advanced notice to Electricity Supply Licence holders and Electricity Generation Licence holders between 13-15 March, CER is publishing a slide deck for information purposes in advance of the statutory process which is expected in late-May/early-June. Any further information regarding the formal notification and the statutory process will be added here.
For further information please contact the I-SEM team on or at 01 400 08 00.
