This new special condition of licence is the “Request for Trading Agreement”, which defines the process of negotiating commercial contracts with eligible suppliers (referred to as the Grid Trade Master Agreement or GTMA). For more information, including a list of eligible suppliers, see of the Ofgem website: If a restructuring is envisaged instead of formal insolvency proceedings (see practice note: advantages of a restructuring over a formal procedure), the company may wish to ensure that the creditors concerned quickly conclude a standstill agreement in order to obtain a respite for a restructuring. Electricity in the United Kingdom (UK) is traded through a bilateral market. There is no mandatory form for trades. However, the Grid Trade Master Agreement (GTMA) has established itself as a standard form of the electricity negotiation document and is often used by electricity producers, suppliers and distributors to document a bilateral agreement on the sale and purchase of electricity. The Grid Trade Master Agreement (GTMA) is an agreement for electricity trading in the United Kingdom.  Trade under a GTMA can be done up to one hour before the start of the half-hour billing period for the supply of electricity. At the end of this period (known as Gate Closure), the provisions of the Balancing and Settlement Code (BSC) will be adopted, including in the form of a balancing mechanism for trading during the same time, although electricity is an intangible asset, these agreements are used to obtain guarantees of electricity supply for a specified period.

If you are a legitimate supplier and would like to apply for a GTMA with the RWE Group, please contact Olivia Hartridge, James Averies, Stuart Bird and Viv Van Duijneveld by submitting the web form here. The special concession condition “liquidity in the wholesale of electricity” applies to RWE npower as well as the other five main energy suppliers and the two main independent power producers in the United Kingdom. It entered into force on 31 March 2014.
