More insight needed for value to industry of within day data sets

Karen Thompson
Operational Liaison and Business Delivery Manager at National Grid

We do still require feedback on the barriers of not currently receiving and benefits of receiving certain within day data items. We need to understand the value of this data and how it can create efficiencies within your organisation that could be passed to end consumers. It is key that we understand this value such that we can prioritise investment in the new data set and ensure we make efficient and economic decisions on behalf of the industry.
Feedback is required around the following:
- Within Day Gas Quality
- Post gas day 'day in brief' - explanation of NG actions in particular circumstances (interesting days) post Gas Day. The aim would be to provide a video or high level paragraph to provide some further context to the decisions taken (over and above current data set) to provide transparency to the market as quickly as possible. At present this context is only provided at the Operational forum which could be up to a month after the interesting day. This brief could be initiated by NG or requested by the industry.

- Gas Quality - Provision of within day GQ data at non specific customer points across the network. We need to understand what components of GQ would be required and whether this would drive industry efficiencies and end consumer benefit.

PCLP- There has been some suggestion that publishing PCLP more frequently than hourly could be beneficial. If so how frequently would be required? Twice a hour? Four times an hour? How would receiving this data more frequently introduce efficiencies into the market/market decisions and hence benefit end consumers?
