This Discussion Request proposes that the concept of implied energisation be removed from the 030 market message. The harmonised 030
Market Message Implementation guide states that “A request for a change of meter configuration for a site that is currently de-energised will be
taken as an implicit request for energisation and will be accepted as long as there is a supply agreement in existence.” There is an issue with this
approach as the 030 does not have a Customer Name field, or a CoLE field, so NIE would be re-energising the premise without a new customer
name. For this reason, NIE propose to remove the implied energisation and insist upon a 017 to request re-energisation (as it includes customer
details and CoLE fields).
