Electric Ireland Response to Stakeholder Engagement Evaluation Panel Consultation

The Electricity Networks Stakeholder Engagement Evaluation Panel

The Electricity Networks Stakeholder Engagement Evaluation (NSEE) Panel, set up by the CRU in accordance with CRU/20/154, is comprised of a wide range of stakeholders. The function of the Panel is to assess and score the System Operators (SOs), EirGrid and ESB Networks, on their annual 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.

On 28th April 2023, the CRU published the decision paper on the updated Terms of Reference for the NSEE Panel for 2023 and 2024. The CRU has decided to retain the existing terms of reference with minor clarifications and amendments under meeting administration to ensure the Panel’s continued effectiveness. The CRU continues to consider the expressions of interest submitted by stakeholders and will publish the list of Panel members for 2023 and 2024 on the CRU website once they have been appointed. This Panel will be tasked with assessing the SOs stakeholder engagement in the years 2022 and 2023.
