Capacity Market 2023: Strengthening security of supply and alignment with net zero

Closed 3 Mar 2023

Opened 9 Jan 2023


This consultation builds upon the Call for Evidence (CfE) published in July 2021 which sought views on proposals to better align the Capacity Market (CM) with the government’s net zero targets and improve delivery assurance across the scheme.

The proposed reforms set out in this consultation represent the next step in the evolution of the CM and have been considered in light of the Review of Electricity Market Arrangements (REMA) programme.

The main policy proposals fall into three categories:

  • strengthening security of supply
  • aligning the CM with net zero
  • other improvements to the CM
