On 26 September 2017, Gas Industry Co published an analysis of submissions following consultation on two papers it commissioned this year: Gas Metering Review: Review of metering service provider arrangements, and Gas Metering Review; review of advanced metering technology. Submissions received can be found here.
As part of the next steps, Gas Industry Co has decided to establish a technical advisory group to provide advice on the issue of advanced metering. The purpose of the Technical Advanced Metering Advisory Committee (TArMAC) is twofold: to develop a set of minimum standards that will allow for the consistent collection and treatment of advanced metering data; and to identify any registry changes or rules amendments needed to accommodate the uptake of advanced metering.
Call for nominations
Gas Industry Co invites nominations from stakeholders for TArMAC. Nominees should have technical knowledge of and experience with gas metering.
Please forward nominations to email@example.com, or upload your submission on this page by 5.00pm, Thursday, 12 October 2017. Nominations should include the name of the nominee along with an outline of their particular areas of relevant expertise. Please note that nominations received through our website will not be published.
The following documents are available below:
- The terms of reference and selection criteria for TArMAC members.
- An initial discussion draft of minimum metering standards.
It is anticipated that the first TArMAC meeting will be held the first week of November. There may be one or two additional meetings held in November or December, depending on the group’s progress with developing a set of minimum advanced metering standards. After that, it is anticipated that the group will meet on an as-needed basis and at least yearly.
