Energy Act 2008

Property Schemes

200.Subsection (4) introduces Schedule 2, which gives effect to a new Schedule (Schedule 2A) to the Electricity Act 1989, (see also the new section 6E to that Act inserted at the end of subsection (2)). The new Schedule enables the Authority, in certain circumstances, to make a scheme transferring property, rights and liabilities from the existing owner to the successful bidder for an offshore transmission licence. The Authority can only make provision in such a scheme where it is necessary or expedient for the purposes of the successful bidder performing its licence and statutory functions as an offshore transmission licence holder. The property scheme could, for example, include the transfer of electrical plant equipment together with rights and liabilities which are necessary for operation of the transmission system.
