Statutory consultation on proposed modifications to Offshore Transmission Licences

The Authority is proposing a number of modifications to offshore transmission owner (OFTO) licences. These fall into three main groupings:

  1. proposed modifications for all OFTO licences to amended standard condtion E12-J3, as set out in the Decision Document published by the Authority in November 2018;
  2. proposed minor and clarificatory modifications for all OFTO licences to amended standard condition E12-J3, that have not been the subject of any previous consultation; and
  3. proposed modifications to certain OFTO licences to amend particular conditions to align with other OFTO licences, also not the subject of previous consultation.

The Authority is consulting on these amendments under section 11A of the Electricity Act 1989, and is seeking views by 18 September 2020.

The Authority is also seeking views from potential bidders for future licences, including preferred bidders where already identified, on the proposed modifications to E12-J3, which we also propose to make to all future OFTO licences.
