The UK Government is committed to delivering secure electricity supplies at least cost to energy consumers. The current standstill imposed on the Capacity Market does not change this commitment or our belief that Capacity Market auctions are the most appropriate way to do this.

No transmission connected electricity generation plants have closed or ceased operation since the 15 November 2018.
