Energy Act 2011

Section 22: Powers under section 17 to 20: supplementary

84.This section makes provision about the exercise of the powers to make licence modifications contained in sections 17 to 20. Subsection (2) allows the Secretary of State to exercise the power to introduce a modification either generally, in relation solely to specified cases or subject to exceptions, and allows the powers to make incidental, consequential or transitional modifications. The Secretary of State can also exercise this power differently in different cases or circumstances. Subsection (3) provides that the provisions included in licences by virtue of these powers need not relate to the activities authorised by the licence and may make different provision for different cases. Subsection (4) stipulates that the Secretary of State must publish details of modifications made under sections 17 to 20 as soon as is reasonably practicable after the modifications are made.

85.Subsection (5) says that a modification of a standard condition of a licence does not prevent any other part of that condition continuing to be regarded as a standard condition. Subsection (6) states that where a standard condition is modified, the condition, as modified, must be incorporated in licences granted after the time of the modification.
