In May 2018, the CRU published its Decision on Reporting and Incentives Framework under PR4, CER/18/087. The Framework sets out twenty decisions for improving reporting and incentives arrangements, covering the totality of the activities undertaken by the TSO, TAO and DSO/DAO on behalf of current and future customers and market participants.
Decision one of CER/18/087 requires EirGrid TSO and ESBN TAO to prepare and publish a summary report documenting how their activities and behaviours over the previous calendar year have delivered outputs relevant to the needs of customers, market participants and other stakeholders – This report is referred to as the Annual Performance Report (APR).
Decision two of CER/18/087 requires EirGrid TSO and ESBN TAO to prepare and publish a summary report on all aspects of investment planning and delivery, from the initial identification of needs based on planning studies through to the delivery and energisation of individual projects – This report is referred to as the Investment Planning and Delivery Report (IPD).
As 2017 was the first year of the new reporting format, the 2017 APR and IPD were not consulted by the transmission network companies. However, these reports were approved by the CRU for publication, and are already published on EirGrid and ESBN’s websites. From 2018 onwards, both the APRs and IPDs will be consulted upon by EirGrid and ESBN prior to submission to the CRU for approval. The APRs should be read in conjunction with the IPDs.
