Winter 2006/7 Consultation Report - Summary Gas demand; forecasts materially lower than those produced in 2005 Gas supply; positive developments have been reported in relation to new infrastructure projects, however, uncertainty remains regarding utilisation rates Electricity market; less uncertain. Coal generation expected to operate at baseload with gas providing marginal capacity Weather remains key determinant Little / no demand-side response required in an average / mild winter Sufficient gas to maintain supplies to NDM market in a 1 in 50 cold winter Information available throughout the winter via our website Contact Simon Griew 01926 656314 email@example.com http://www.nationalgrid.com/uk/Gas/TYS/outlook /

New SO Gas Incentives NTS Gas demand forecasting accuracy Performance measure based on the accuracy of day ahead 1400 UNC gas demand forecast NTS Market info website performance Performance measures based on: The availability of the National Grid Web information web pages (24/7) The timeliness of publication of information reports on the website, fore example NTSAFF, NTSAPF, SISR03 etc In both cases, performance improvement to be delivered through IS changes, training, and process/analytical changes.
Day Ahead Demand Forecast Incentive Option 2 risk/reward DF incentive chosen: Winter only incentive “13:00” Day ahead demand forecast Benchmark set at last years performance 3.6% = 11.4 mcm average error Circulatory issue critical?
