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.
