Implementation of new data flow

Last week we implemented a new data flow for energy consumption data using the secure industry messaging system.  The thorough preparatory work to develop the proposals, design our system changes, communicate with other industry parties, test our system changes and deploy our system changes meant the implementation went faultlessly.  This change has been several years in the planning with the intention to make the unmetered arrangement more robust within the settlement system, the change should have no impact on our customers except to ensure that data passes from us to other industry participants more reliably and will enable the Data Collector to automatically process the data immediately on receipt which should mean more accurate billing by the Supplier.  The change also helps future proof the arrangements in advance of the future Marketwide Half Hourly Settlement.  Tom Chevalier
