Meter Asset Provider

A MAP essentially finances the metering asset and some installation costs in
the gas and electricity markets


The MAP is the owner of the meter and receives rental from the Supplier


Where the MAP is directly contracted with the Supplier, the meter asset is
provided to the Supplier who passes to the MAM for installation and
maintenance.


The MAP can have a relationship with many MAMs


An organisation may be a MAP and a MAM or just a MAP


Even where the MAP is within an organisation with a MAM the MAP still
provides meters to other MAMs

5

Key issues faced by MAPs

The lack of timely access to / provision of essential and accurate data.


This lack of data leads to the inefficient management of the meter asset
not just for the MAP but for other parties e.g. Supplier and MAMs


The inefficient management is adding costs to the industry through
rental billing issues, disputes, reconciliations and risk premiums.





6

Actions taken to date to address the data issue

MAPs submit the same portfolios of meter points to all Suppliers and MAMs
requesting information. This is an inefficient and ineffective process.


MAPs have raised the data
-
flow process issues through SPAA to improve
data flows between MAMs, and Suppliers and MAPs.


MAPs have raised data access request through SPAA to obtain access to
the data held on UK Link systems. SPAA advised this was not possible
without a supporting modification to the UNC


The issues faced by MAPs for the future regarding Smart meters have been
raised at senior level with Ofgem and DECC and the Smart Metering
Implementation Programme.

Modification 422 Creating the permission to release
data to Meter Asset Provider organisations

The purpose of this proposal is to create permission in the UNC for data to
be provided to MAPs.


The data is:


-

Asset data


o Meter Serial Number


o Meter Model


o MAM id


o Meter installation date


o Meter removal date

-

Supply meter point data


o Meter point status


o GT id or iGT id

-

Supply data


o Shipper shortcode and full name


o Supplier id and full name


o Confirmation effective date

A permission route for MAPs could be via changes to UNC V5.5.2 to add another
category for MAPs similar to (g), with the data defined in an annex (other routes
may be available a GT legal view would be helpful).


A confidentiality agreement would be in place between the MAPs and GTs clearly
defining the Data and Permitted purpose. The confidentiality agreement would
extend to Shippers / Suppliers being able to take action against a MAP under the
Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999.


MAPs would enter into a contract with Xoserve for the services


The service envisaged is that MAPs would submit portfolios of MPRNs to
Xoserve, with Xoserve providing a completed portfolio.

Modification 422 Creating the permission to release
data to Meter Asset Provider organisations

Confidence in service provision


MAPs register with SPAA, only MAPs registered with SPAA will be entitled to
the service (Xoserve control check and requirement of contract between MAP
and Xoserve).


Confidentiality agreement with GTs


data and permitted purpose defined.


Data is only used by the MAP for the purpose of the MAP business, data is not
passed outside the MAP business or used for any other purpose.


Modification 422 seeks to enable access to gas data for MAPs

10

Summary

MAPs are a vital part of the gas and electricity industry


Issues faced today are a significant order of magnitude greater for the Smart
metering world.


Access to data will improve the efficiency of operation of the MAPs and MAP
services to other organisations, and the roll
-
out of Smart meters.
