    The Pre-Qualification Submissions Window (10 weeks' duration) for the 2017 T-4 and the T-1 auctions will open on Monday 24 July and close on Friday 29 September.

    Before participating in a Capacity Auction, companies need to prequalify the generation or DSR resources for which they are seeking Capacity Agreements. The EMR Delivery Body uses the information submitted during Prequalification to verify that generation and DSR Capacity Market Units (CMUs) are eligible to participate in the auction and to establish the size of individual CMUs. The Prequalification process also enables licensed owners of existing licensable generation units to notify their intention to Opt-out of a Capacity Auction should they not wish to enter.

    A separate Application is required for each CMU. Applications for Prequalification are made via the EMR Delivery Body Portal.​

    • Capacity with long-term contracts to provide Short-Term Operating Reserve (STOR) unless an irrevocable declaration is made to terminate the STOR contracts if awarded a capacity agreement.
