DR 1059 – Removal of Implied Energisation from 030

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).
