OFGEM plans to extend NETA into Scotland

Google Translate

Despite the teething troubles experienced by traders in the first week of the new electricity trading arrangements (NETA) in England and Wales (page 26), energy regulator OFGEM plans to extend NETA into Scotland. Known as the British Electricity Transmission and Trading Arrangements (BETTA) it will create a single British electricity market. The aim, says OFGEM, is to allow Scottish customers to benefit from the lower prices brought about by the launch of NETA south of the border on March 27. The project is to be led by David Halldearn who joins OFGEM from the Department of Trade and Industry where he worked on energy issues, including renewable energy policy.
