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).
All reports from 2017 onwards (and until the end of the PR4 period) will be prepared in accordance with CER/18/087 and additional guidance that may be issued to EirGrid and ESBN by the CRU following the annual approval process. These reports are subject to a consultation process with the final step being the CRU’s approval. The APRs should be read in conjunction with the IPDs.
