  • 18. The answer - Centralised Comms
    “Suppliers will have to use the DCC – a single entity – as that will aid switching and data management. It will control access to the data and secure communications, so it must be independent.”

  • 30. Core Principles
    Impact on the consumer
    Privacy & Data Security
    Speed and Cost of Implementation
    Re-usability
    Avoiding Scope Creep
    Existing market arrangements
  • 31. Interim Options (1)
    Supplier owned HEs non-standard interfaces to Central Service
    Supplier owned HEs with standardisedinterfaces to Central Service
    Centrally owned HEsproviding Central Service
  • 32. Interim Options (2)
    Installing Suppliers provide readings to a central store
    Installing Suppliers provide Smart Meter Services direct to 3rdParties
    Suppliers Migrate Smart Meters to gaining Supplier’s HE on CoS
  • 33. Key Influencing Factors
    • Industry has immature Smart Metering infrastructures
    • 34. Not all Suppliers have a Smart programme at all
    • 35. The industry needs to see interim as a step to DCC
  • Enhancement A
    Centralise all head ends
    Enhancement B
    Standardise interfaces
    Enhancement C
    Add legacy support
    Simplify business processes

  • 36.   
    How did we get here?
    Why is change needed?
    What are the interim options?
    Who could govern the interim?
  • 37. The ideal regulatory framework
    • A dedicated Smart Energy Code
    • 38. Governing access to smart electricity and gas meters
    • 39. Defining commercial relationships between DCC and its users
    • 40. A code common to both gas and electricity
  • But this is highly complex...
  • 41. Existing regulatory frameworks
    • The Master Registration Agreement
    • 42. The Supply Point Administration Agreement
    • 43. The Uniform Network Code
    • 44. The Balancing and Settlement Code
    • 45. The Data Transfer Services Agreement
  • Comparing frameworks
    • The MRA and SPAA do not provide for data transfers service provision
    • 46. The UNC and BSC do cover data transfer but also a much wider area
    • 47. The DTSA is solely about metering-related data transfer, associated services and governance
  • What would be needed?
    • A transparent mechanism for cost recovery
    • 48. An obligation on gas and electricity Suppliers to join
    • 49. No restriction on the use of intellectual property by a future DCC
    • 50. Any user objections being ultimately resolved by Ofgem
  • Interoperability Questions
