2 Contents Background and Context Objectives of the Workgroup Objectives of this meeting Recap on High-level Principles Initial areas for discussion
3 Background PN UNC Workgroup April meeting agreed to commence work on gathering requirements for remaining topics following SMIP announcement Reconciliation is next logical topic, now that Settlement rules are well-developed
4 Objectives of the Workgroup Determine detailed business requirements for future Reconciliation of all Supply Points Consider the comments raised in the Initial Requirements Register and either include in future requirements or agree to close Provide sufficient definition around business rules to: Enable the proposed requirements to be incorporated in xoserve s investment decisions, and Support the raising of any UNC Modification Proposals, if required
5 Approach to Workgroup High level principles already defined under Reconciliation topic Need to revisit/validate the principles as first step Ensure interactions with Settlement are correct and complete Need to continue to monitor and align with Smart outcomes
6 Scope of Reconciliation Submit Meter Reading to GT Determine Daily Energy Offtaken Apply Scaling Adjustment (smear) Issue Energy Balancing Invoices Collect/Pay Energy Balancing Invoices Submit Meter Reading for Reconciliation Calculate Reconciliation Calculate Reconciliation Neutrality Prepare reconciliation Invoice Issue Reconciliation Invoices Scope of Reconciliation
7 Recap on High-Level Principles Preferred option was for daily settlement with reconciliation as an exception process This is still a longer term aspiration for some participants Alternative was for daily or periodic rec Aspiration to reduce/remove Filter Failures Proposal to apply rollover tolerance to reconciliations
8 Current Scope of Reconciliation Daily Metered sites Correction of energy apportionment after a period of estimates Apportionment of Drift identified at a resynch Non Daily Metered Apportionment of Actual Energy following receipt of periodic read Separate discussions required on Drift Focus of this presentation
9 NDM Reconciliation What Scenarios Where Periodic Reads are the Norm Reconcile back to last read received against allocated energy for a number of days Where Daily Reads are the Norm Scenario 1 all daily reads are received Scenario 2 reads are received with gaps within or between batches
10 Initial Areas for Discussion Periodic reconciliation Roll-over tolerances Daily reconciliation Filter Failures Reconciliation Neutrality
11 Periodic Reconciliation
12 Current Principles of NDM Reconciliation Reconciliation Energy must be attributed to individual days, although reads cover a number of days Why? Know what daily SAP rates to apply Know what transportation rates to apply How? Using the NDM (LPA Factors) reconciliation energy is apportioned in same shape as original allocation Daily estimated reads are not required
13 Apportionment of Actual Energy for a Period Energy usage Use of factors apportions energy in same daily shape as original allocation More Rec energy on higher allocation days Factors are specific to LDZ and End User Category Time Actual reads Original Allocation Reconciliation Energy
14 Treatment of Reconciliation Energy Higher allocation days receive higher reconciliation energy Individual daily read estimates are not required for this approach Achieved through use of Reconciliation Factor and LPA Factors SAP1 SAP2 SAP3 SAP REC QUANTITY = 40 ORIGINAL QUANTITY = 200 REC FACTOR = 0.2 DAILY REC QUANTITY = 40/200 * ORIGINAL DAILY QUANTITY ORIGINAL QUANTITY REC QUANTITY
15 Options for Reconciliation Are there any alternative approaches required for periodic reconciliation?
16 Treatment of Reconciliation Other Options ALTERNATIVE 1 Straight line method additional energy divided across days in period Simpler to calculate and understand Takes no account of usage patterns/allocations REC QUANTITY = 40 DAYS IN PERIOD = 4 DAILY REC QUANTITY = 40/ SAP1 SAP2 SAP3 SAP4 ORIGINAL QUANTITY REC QUANTITY
17 Treatment of Reconciliation Other Options SAP1 SAP2 SAP3 SAP4 REC QUANTITY = 40 ORIGINAL QUANTITY = 200 DAILY REC QUANTITY = 40 (final day) ORIGINAL QUANTITY REC QUANTITY ALTERNATIVE 2 Last Day method apply all energy to last day in rec period Simpler to calculate and understand Takes no account of usage patterns/allocations
18 Treatment of Reconciliation Other Options ALTERNATIVE 3 (Could combine with other alternatives) Only reconcile energy Commodity element not reconciled due to immateriality Halves the number of transactions and invoices
19 Reconciliation - Rollover Tolerances
20 Rollover Tolerances Proposal to apply rollover tolerance to reconciliations in High-Level Principles Low value reconciliations are not invoiced but rolled over until total balance exceeds a tolerance Reduces number of low-values invoices/ charges
21 Application of Tolerances - Example Reconciliation [Energy] Reconciliation for Month Cumulative reconciliation rolled over Billed Reconciliation +1,000-1,000 Month Month x (close-out or change of Shipper) Example of a 1,000 kwh roll-over tolerance for invoicing Values based on worked example in High Level Principles document
22 Tolerances Business Rules Required Selection of Parameters energy/transportation/combined kwh value Setting of parameters By AQ band? By usage type? Treatment of any rolled over amounts at close-out
23 Daily Reconciliation
24 Daily Reconciliation Process 3 Process 3 daily estimation followed by batches of daily reads Scenario 1 All daily reads received What rules for tolerances? Any simplification options to reduce complexity?
25 Daily Reconciliation Process 3 Scenario 2 Gaps between batches or within batches Any difference from Process 4 reconciliations periodic reads? Any simplifications to apply? What rules for tolerances?
26 Reconciliation Filter Failure Regime
27 Current Filter Failure Regime NDM Reconciliations currently subject to tolerance check and possible suppression prior to release User Suppressed Reconciliation Values - USRVs Current tolerances applied to LDZ Commodity charges per day E.g. 47p per day debit or credit in Bands 1 & 2 Shipper must investigate and correct/ approve prior to invoicing
28 Filter Failure Regime Pros and Cons Benefits Individual Shippers protected from large erroneous values Industry protected from opposite impacts of erroneous values Current Commodity based regime easily understood Fallback to GT after 30 months Drawbacks Delay to processing of reconciliation while suppressed Time required to investigate and correct Incentives required to ensure timely investigation Need to review limits every time transportation rates change
29 Current Tolerance Levels Supply Point AQ Band (kwh) 73, , , , ,000-2,195,999 2,196,000-5,859,999 5,860,000-14,649,999 14,650,000-29,299,999 29,300,000-58,599,999 58,600,000 + Daily LDZ Commodity charge from 1/10/08 (debit or credit - )
30 Filter Failures Areas for Consideration Is a suppression mechanism still required prior to invoicing? (Recommendation yes) What basis for suppression - / kwh Any changes to incentives Any changes to fallback arrangements? Need to define framework and nature of parameters actual values not required yet?
31 Treatment of Reconciliation Neutrality
32 Reconciliation Neutrality Principles included aspiration to move away from RbD Energy must still be kept whole following each reconciliation Allocation Scaling Adjustment shares out unidentified gas each day Reconciliation changes the amount of unidentified gas Reconciliation Neutrality
33 Initial Energy Allocation Unidentified energy shared out at Shipper level not site level Shared in proportion to initial measurements/ allocations A B C D E Shippers A to E Allocation Scaling Adjustment A Initial measurement/ estimate
34 Reconciliation Energy Reconciliation may be +ve or ve Changes the unidentified energy position Need to change each Shipper s Scaling position following any reconciliation A A E B D B D C C Shippers A to E E Original Allocation A Reconciled Energy
35 Treatment of Scaling after Reconciliation OPTION 1 recalculate share of unidentified gas based on original proportions Minimal change in amounts from first allocation A A B B C D D E E Takes no account of erroneous initial measurements C Shippers A to E Original Allocation A Reconciled Energy Share of unidentified gas
36 Treatment of Scaling after Reconciliation A A B B C D D E E OPTION 2 - recalculate share of unidentified gas based on latest measurements/ estimates proportions Corrects for errors in initial measurements C Share of unidentified gas may be more volatile Shippers A to E Original Allocation A Reconciled Energy Share of unidentified gas
37 Treatment of Scaling after Reconciliation Xoserve recommendation Base the share of unidentified gas on latest measurements (Option 2) More complex calculation More volatility But removes any incentive to understate initial measurement/estimates Billed at Shipper level what rate of transportation is applied?
