The distribution companies have a duty to register whether data to energinet has been sent on time and, if it was delayed, they must record the reason for the delay. The quality of the meter data is also registered. In addition, data is provided for all hourly-billed meter sites, and if this data is not available, consumption is estimated. If the proportion of estimated data exceeds 2%, the reason for this level of estimates is registered.
The quality of meter data exchanged in relation to gas volumes is registered on an ongoing basis. The data involved relates to unvalidated to validated data, data that has been validated to the 1st correction and data that has been validated to the 2nd correction.
A working group (the Data Exchange Group) works continuously on ensuring the efficient exchange of data between the distribution companies and the transmission company.
