As the NIROC scheme has ended for new applications, Ofgem’s focus now turns to the participants within the scheme and their compliance with the rules. Several of our members have had audits of their generating stations in recent months and we understand that the number of audits is expected to increase. Photographic evidence of meter readings, half hourly production data, NIE Networks documentation and commissioning reports are some of the information required, usually with less than 10 days’ notice.
Farm Energy NI provides a free Ofgem Audit Assessment Checklist for all members. And to help ensure a smooth audit, we can help our trading members by preparing a file of the most common documents and information requested by the auditors.
