In August 2017, the extended reserve manager, advised stakeholders that because of a technical issue there would be a delay in issuing a draft Extended Reserve Procurement Schedule for consultation. The Authority decided to pause the project while they assess options for reliably delivering the scheme.
In April 2018, the Authority decided to obtain the findings from the system operator’s scheduled technical requirements review (TRR) prior to any further implementation of the EPER scheme. The review of the TRR will further inform the resolution of design issues that have arisen.
