Mock Stress Event – Metered data must be submitted to EMRS

On 30 April 2018, the Delivery Body confirms the period for the Mock System Stress Event. The period is 1 March 2018 at 11:00–15:00 and this includes Settlement Periods 23 to 30. Metered data must be submitted by your elected Metering Pathway no later than 17:00 on 14 May 2018 (9WD) to EMRS to cover this period.

  • For BM units – No further action is required.
  • For MPANs via the D0357 – The elected Half Hourly Data Aggregators (HHDA) should provide data on your behalf.
  • Self–Submission of data via Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP) – The procedure is stated in section 3.2 ‘Self-Submission by a Capacity Provider’ in WP195 – Capacity Market and CFD Metered Data. Please be advised the data must be submitted for a Settlement Day, and not just the relevant Settlement Periods. The metered data should be provided using a CSV defined file format (e.g. in Appendix 2) uploaded via SFTP. The requirements of the CSV file are defined in Appendix 1. To register for a SFTP account with EMRS please email contact@emrsettlement.co.uk with a nominated contact, email address, and a mobile number.

Demand Side Response (DSR) CMU’s – DSR CMU’s are required to submit metered data for at least six weeks prior to the Stress Event period within the above timescales. This is required to be able to perform the DSR Baseline calculation.

WP195 – Capacity Market and CFD Metered Data provides details on the process for data submission via the three metering pathways.
