CVA vs SVA: The pros and cons for flexible generation and storage assets

This webinar will explain the key differences for flexible generation and storage assets between the Central Volume Allocation (CVA) and Supplier Volume Allocation (SVA) metering arrangements within the GB electricity market, and how each determines which charges are applied and revenue streams can be accessed.

Electricity generation and storage assets connected at the distribution network level may have the choice of being metered under CVA or SVA arrangements, depending on their capacity and location. We will set out the rules which determine if a flexible asset must be registered as CVA or SVA and under which circumstances there is a choice for the developer.

Our experts will also explain the key differences between the two arrangements with focus given to the required metering equipment and communications interfaces, how network charges are applied (including the potential for embedded benefits) and opportunities for assets to access balancing services contracts and participating in the Balancing Mechanism.

The session concluded with a Q&A session with our experts.
