Point 2.10
Amend as follows:
"De-rating" means adjusting capacity data to reflect the availability of particular types of
power plants. Thus, it gives an indication of the output from a particular source that is
likely to be technically available at times of peak demand. Equipment that generates
electricity from conventional sources has a better availability factor than equipment that
relies on renewable sources. For example, a coal-fired power plant might be available
for 85% of the time, whereas a wind turbine might be available for 17-24% of the time,
depending on its location.
Reason
This point addresses the issue of equipment availability. Whereas energy is distributed through a
network, the point makes a direct comparison between two different types of energy production. The
comparison can only work if it makes a distinction between all conventional and all renewable energy
sources. The point ought to be amended to reflect this.
