Hello and welcome to the mid monthly SEC newsletter.
Alt HAN – Exempt Premises List Workshop
When: Wednesday 31 October 2018 at Gemserv, 8 Fenchurch Street, London, EC3M 4AJ.
The Supply Licence Conditions require All Relevant Suppliers to work together to establish and maintain the Exempt Premises List (EPL).
The Alt HAN Forum has agreed to facilitate the development of the EPL and is organising a workshop to enable all suppliers to feed into its development, and you are invited to attend!
The workshop will look at principles and mechanisms for determining the EPL criteria and associated cost thresholds. It will also seek to review and agree the operational requirements for EPL premises-level data management.
Have your say: Consultation on the Transition and Migration Approach Document (TMAD) v0.2 for SMETS1 Services.
Launched by the DCC on 12 October, it sets out the approach for migrating SMETS1 Installations into the DCC’s systems as part of the DCC’s plan to deliver SMETS1 services.
SMETS 1 end date and derogations
Firstly a reminder that the SMETS1 end date has been put back until 5 December 2018. There is also an extended end date for 15 March 2019 where prepayment meters are being replaced, and for Suppliers who have existing derogations. More detail about the derogations, and a list of suppliers with derogations is on the SEC website. The government also issued responses to two consultations on SMETS1 meters:
- Enrolment of SMETS1 meter cohorts within the DCC: confirmed the government position that enrolment should begin for Aclara, Honeywell Elster, Itron and Landis+Gyr meter cohorts. There will be a further consultation on remaining Secure and EDMI cohorts.
- Maximising interoperability for SMETS1 meters: energy suppliers to take all reasonable steps to enrol SMETS1 meters in the DCC, within 12 months of the point they can do so or gaining on change of supplier and take all reasonable steps to replace any unenrolled SMETS1 meters with SMETS2 meters by the end of 2020.
Linked to this BEIS have also published Explanatory memorandum to draft modifications to electricity and gas supply licences and the Smart Energy Code.
