Gas Industry Co commissioned two papers on gas metering issues and invited stakeholder feedback by 14 June 2017. Submissions received are available below.
The papers, Gas Metering Review: Review of metering service provider arrangements, and Gas Metering Review: Review of advanced metering technology were authored by Rod Crone Consulting. They describe current metering arrangements and spell out the possibilities offered by advanced metering with a view to assessing whether there are barriers to competition in the metering market or to deployment of advanced meters. Both papers are available below in Related Documents.
This work stems from requests from stakeholders that we look into metering issues and is consistent with the Government Policy Statement on Gas Governance (April 2008), which seeks an efficient market structure for the provision of gas metering services, among other outcomes.
The Covering Document below gives an overview of each of the papers as well as questions that we would like to pose to stakeholders in light of the papers' findings. The final chapter of the Covering Document looks at metering-related complaints received by Utilities Disputes.
Gas Industry Co will consider stakeholders' submissions in determining what, if any, next steps to undertake regarding metering. This analysis and a summary of submissions will published on Gas Industry Co's website.
