Energy Act 2013

Section 32: Other requirements

151.This section enables the Secretary of State to make provision to impose other requirements, in addition to those particularly associated with capacity agreements, on licence holders, persons carrying out functions under the capacity market and any other person who is, or has ceased to be, a capacity provider.

152.Subsection (3) sets out that such requirements may, in particular, include requirements relating to the manner in which functions are to be exercised, restrictions on the use of generation plant and participation in a capacity auction, and the inspection of plant or property (to supplement the provision in section 28(7)). For example, the Secretary of State may require a person carrying out functions under the capacity market to comply with requirements regarding a particular format, such as to report on its activities, or provide advice. In relation to restrictions on the use of generation plant and participation in a capacity auction, the Secretary of State could, for example, prevent any part of a generating plant to which a capacity agreement does not apply to be used in a way that undermined the efficient operation of the capacity market.
