Technical Assurance of Metering Expert Group (TAMEG)
About the TAMEG
The TAMEG is an industry expert group which provides an opportunity to discuss issues and exchange ideas between Elexon and industry participants.
It provides an arena where experts can come together to discuss the operations of the Technical Assurance of Metering Technique, the Technical Assurance Agent (TAA) and his findings. It is not a BSC obligation or a Committee of the BSC Panel; it’s a value added service to ensure the TAM service is effective and efficient.
Where the TAMEG requires guidance or approval of its business, information will be presented to the Performance Assurance Board (PAB). It may also assess and propose revisions to Code Subsidiary Documents and Section L of the BSC via the PAB.
The TAMEG is held every quarter on the third Wednesday of that quarter month. It is held at Elexon’s offices from 10.00am – 4pm. It is chaired by Mike Smith, one of Elexon’s Metering Analysts.
Membership is open to Suppliers, Supplier Agents and LDSOs (or appointed representatives) that have the TAM technique applied to them. The TAA also attend, and we also invite industry experts as necessary.
Remote meetings due to COVID-19
We have decided, save in exceptional circumstances, we will not be re-opening the Elexon office to external visitors until at least the beginning of 2021 and we will therefore continue to hold all meetings, committees and workgroups virtually. This was decided after viewing the feedback and results from an internal and external survey.
To recognise this prolonged change to our working arrangements, we have created a set of principles to be followed when holding online meetings. These principles will be highlighted at the beginning of each meeting to hopefully improve your virtual meeting experience.
