The Networks Stakeholder Engagement Evaluation (NSEE) Panel has been set up by the CRU, in accordance with CER/18/087, and is composed by a wide range of stakeholders. The function of the Panel is to assess and score the System Operators (SOs), EirGrid TSO and ESBN DSO, on their performance in relation to stakeholder engagement. The final score for each SO, agreed by consensus by the Panel, is linked to a financial incentive that feeds into the annual allowed electricity network revenues.
CER/18/087 requires the SOs to publish for consultation, by the 31 March each year, a report on the effectiveness of their stakeholder engagement strategies over the previous calendar year.
Following a consultation in March 2021, the CRU has now published its decision on the Terms of Reference and Membership of the Panel.
