||<p>We knew some old coal powered stations would likely be closing and we have already
taken steps to ensure security of supply for the coming winters. National Grid has
procured 3.6GW of reserve capacity for this coming winter. Looking further ahead,
the Capacity Market is designed to drive new investment to help keep the lights on,
as well as getting the best out of our existing power stations and we have recently
consulted on proposals to introduce the Capacity Market a year early, from 2017/18.
A response to the consultation will be published shortly</p>
