  • Entry Capacity Transfer and Trade Methodology Statement

  • The Entry Capacity Transfer and Trade Methodology statement (ECTT) describes the methodology that National Grid will use to facilitate the transfer of unsold, or the trade of sold,  NTS Firm Entry Capacity, for the month ahead, from one ASEP to another ASEP. It also allows the surrender of unwanted capacity, such that it is available, to be bought and allocated at the same ASEP. In particular, it defines:

     • under what circumstances National Grid will consider such transfers or trades; and

     • the process to be undertaken by National Grid to determine the quantities that it will allow to be transferred and or traded.

    At the top of this page is the current version of the ECTT. Below this are documents relating to the regular review of the ECTT and related consultation material.
