When: Phase 1A – June 2022

As part of the regulations, there are a number of events that need to be measured, stored and made accessible. 

The measuring system requirement includes:

  • Recording electricity imported or exported in kWh
  • Recording charging event times (start, stop, increase, decrease)
  • The ability for the user to view all charging data for the past 12 months
  • Configuring the Charge Point so that it is able to measure/calculate every one second the electrical power it has imported or exported and provide this information via a communications network. 

To be eligible for most DSR services, 2% accuracy or MID equivalent metering is required as well as compliance with the metering Code of Practice (CoP11). The minimum accuracy requirement for the Phase 1 regulations is 10%, however, this is not sufficient to qualify for most demand response services.
