MP149 Effecting Changes to the Smart Energy Code efficiently

Proposer Sarah-Jane Russell
Lead Analyst Kev Duddy
Date raised 14/01/2021
StageRefinement Process
Implementation date Unknown
Latest update A Refinement Consultation was issued on 11 June 2021. The deadline for responses passed 2 July 2021. The responses were discussed with the Working Group 7 July 2021. Following this, the solution will be further refined, before returning to the August Working Group.

What is the issue?

Currently the parties that can raise a Draft Proposal to instigate changes to the Smart Energy Code (SEC) are limited. These constraints negatively impact the efficient progression of changes by:

• limiting the Parties who can raise change to those who have sufficient resources;
• impeding required changes being raised;
• burdening certain Parties devote the time and effort that being a Proposer requires;
• distorting the drivers of the Change process as only Parties with sufficient resources will raise changes;
• requiring Proposers to make decisions where they are acting on behalf of others; and
• adding inefficiencies into the process.

What is the solution?

MP149 proposes to extend the provisions to raise Draft Proposals to SECAS, the TABASC, and the Alt HAN Forum. It will also remove the existing limitations to the SEC Panel. Additionally, MP149 will also extend this ability to certain other SEC Sub-Committees subject to the SEC Panel delegating them that responsibility within their terms of reference.
