Formal title: Reporting to LDSOs of Aggregated Metering Data for Embedded Networks
Ofgem has approved a new Common Distribution Charging Methodology (CDCM) that requires portfolio billing for Distribution networks embedded within other Distribution networks. The BSC currently provides for Licensed Distribution System Operators (LDSOs) that operate embedded networks to receive Settlement data to calculate their own charges, but not for other LDSOs to use this data. P246 will make Settlement data available to other LDSOs to facilitate portfolio billing under the CDCM.
On 28 January 2010 the Authority approved the Proposed Modification P246 which was implemented on 31 March 2010.
