circumstances has proven to result in verifiable and measurable or estimable energy efficiency or primary energy savings Energy Services Provision of technology or actions that promote energy efficiency Smart meters and ancilliary services Grid tariff adjustments Energy Efficiency Measures Information services that raise energy efficiency awareness and enable efficiency amongst consumers Provision of information Improved interface for consumer information Grid status information Direct advice to end-users COPYRIGHTPYRY 4 01/17/2020 LIST OF ENERGY SERVICES Includes the provision of technology and/or actions that promote energy efficiency R&R for DSOs/TSOs are described in EED and Electricity directives Directives also provide general (MS) requirements for energy services with no dedicated responsible party Energy services R&R in rolling out and operating smart meters Functional requirements/regulation for smart meters Opportunities for demand response and ancillary Smart meters (energy) services R&R as determinants and issuer of grid tariffs Time-differentiated contracts as facilitator for DR and EE Time-differentiated contracts/methodologies The EED states that network tariffs may support dynamic pricing for DR measures Grid tariffs

Grid status information and information to prevent unplanned interrupt. No EU regulation related to (ex-ante) information requirements to avoid unplanned interruptions Direct advice to end-users

Summary [email protected] 9 PARTICIPATION IN COMPETITIVE ACTIVITIES DSO participation Grey area Non-DSO At present, grid companies are well-shielded from competitive activities. The Third Energy Package aims to strengthen this, though a one size fits all is acknowledged to not be realistic. Competitive activities that DSO are not (should not be) allowed to participate in Energy generation Energy supply
Competitive activities that could allow for DSO participation under special circumstances (in different countries) Areas that tangent competitiveness which involve DSO participation Income framework regulation Handling DSO datahub data Billing information COPYRIGHTPYRY 10 01/17/2020 HOW DO DSOS PARTAKE IN COMPETITIVE ACTIVITIES IN THE NORDICS? Competitive activity participation Limited incentive to participate in competitive activities due to regulated income All Nordic DSOs act as neutral facilitators of the market Shall not discriminate between system users according to the Third ED May use price information to influence consumer behavior DSOs not responsible for invoicing under mandatory combined billing regime Billing regime MCB will be introduced in Denmark, being reviewed in Norway and proposed in Sweden Possibility to specify tariff on bill depends on layout DSOs responsible for invoicing network service if not combined billing Indirect brand marketing on behalf of integrated supplier, but the effect is unclear Tariff may be specified on bill Income framework models Information exchange Designed to incentivise DSOs to be as efficient as possible
Different models in the Nordic countries The main difference is that the regulation scheme in some countries include benchmarking, i.e. measuring efficiency against a reference NordREG has recommended implementation of automatic meter reading (AMR) Increased data availability will in turn require introduction of efficient information exchange systems National decision on data resolution (e.g. hourly) COPYRIGHTPYRY 11 01/17/2020 COMPETITIVE ACTIVITIES INCOME FRAMEWORK MODELS Stronger promotion of competition between DSOs when benchmarking is used COMPETITIVE PARTICIPATION Regulated by revenue cap adjusted if income deviates Regulatory period Efficiency target Benchmarking 1 year 4 years 5 years 1 year 4 years Individual General & individual Individual
