The CER has today (11th November 2010) published a Consultation Paper on Smart Metering entitled "Second Consultation on Possible National Rollout Scenarios for the Smart Metering Cost Benefit Analysis" (CER/10/197).
This consultation aims to get further feedback on possible functional requirements for a national smart metering rollout in order to inform the cost benefit analysis for smart metering in Ireland. The paper covers electricity and gas smart meters for residential customers and all non-profile metered business customers. It is the second in a series of consultations that, in tandem with findings from the smart metering trials currently underway, will aim to bring more clarity to the myriad of issues surrounding a full smart metering implementation in order to inform the cost benefit analysis for smart metering in Ireland.
This consultation has been informed by the responses received (CER/10/161, published 9th September 2010) to the previous CER consultation on this topic (CER/10/082, published 11th June 2010). A summary of these responses is outlined throughout the paper for each topic after which the CER view on the topic is outlined. This consultation in effect refines the issues raised in CER/10/082 and presents a number of proposals by the CER for adoption as working assumptions relating to the business/data requirements, systems functionality requirements and high level implementation timelines for a full smart metering rollout to be used in the cost benefit analysis. Respondents are invited to comment on these proposals.
The consultation period ends on 14th January 2011. The consultation paper is attached below along with a Word version of Appendix A (List of Substantive Questions - which allows for a "short-cut" option for respondents to submit their comments to the CER) and a copy of Appendix D (ESB Networks Presentation Summary of Technology Trial Findings).
