SOGL - Key Organisational Requirements, Roles and Responsibilities

On the 14th September 2017, the Commission Regulation (EU) 2017/1485 establishing a guideline on electricity transmission system operation (SO GL) entered into force. Article 40(6) of SO GL required all TSOs to agree on Key Organisational Requirements, Roles and Responsibilities (KORRR) relating to Data Exchange. KORRR was approved by the All Regulatory Authority on 19th December 2018, and will serve as the basis for what TSOs, DSOs and Significant Grid Users (SGUs) will need to do to comply with Articles 41 to 53 of SO GL. TSOs, DSOs and SGUs will need to comply with KORRR from 14th March 2019.

SGUs are the target audience of this consultation. SGUs are as defined under Article 2(1) of SO GL, which are;

(a) existing and new power generating modules that are, or would be, classified as type B, C and D in accordance with the criteria set out in Article 5 of Commission Regulation (EU) 2016/631;

(b) existing and new transmission-connected demand facilities;

(c) existing and new transmission-connected closed distribution systems;

(d) existing and new demand facilities, closed distribution systems and third parties if they provide demand response directly to the TSO in accordance with the criteria in Article 27 of Commission Regulation (EU) 2016/1388;

(e) providers of redispatching of power generating modules or demand facilities by means of aggregation and providers of active power reserve in accordance with Title 8 of Part IV of SO GL; and

(f) existing and new high voltage direct current (‘HVDC’) systems in accordance with the criteria in Article 3(1) of Commission Regulation (EU) 2016/1447.

The requirements of KORRR apply to new and existing SGUs.

Under Article 40(5) of SO GL, the TSO is required to co-ordinate with DSOs and SGUs within its Observability Area on the applicability and scope of data exchange. Also, under Article 40(7) each TSO is to reach an agreement with relevant DSOs on the processes and formats of data exchange between them. In early 2019 EirGrid initiated a consultation on KORRR. The purpose of this consultation was:

  • To define the TSO’s and DSO’s proposed applicability and scope of KORRR.
  • To enable the accurate incorporation of SGU interactions under KORRR to the TSO-DSO agreement.
  • To provide SGUs with clear information of the TSO’s and DSO’s proposed SGU commitments under KORRR, and a mechanism for SGUs to provide feedback to the TSO and DSO ahead of the TSO-DSO agreement in March 2019

Current data exchange practices are already largely aligned with KORRR. As a result, the proposals in this KORRR consultation align with current practices and the requirements of the Grid Code and Distribution Code. EirGrid sought your feedback on a number of proposals which reflect this, with the below documents being made available for download:

(1) KORRR SGU Consultation – Ireland (produced jointly by EirGrid in its role as the Transmission System Operator in Ireland and ESB Networks in its role as the Distribution System Operator in Ireland)
(2) KORRR
(3) KORRR SGU Consultation Response Template – Ireland 

The consultation ran from 25 January 2019 to 17:00 close of business 25 February 2019 inclusive. There were no submissions in response to that consultation.

On 3 September 2020 the EirGrid Submission on the Applicability and Scope of Data Exchange under Key Organisational Requirements, Roles and Responsibilities (KORRR) in accordance with Article 6(4)(b) of the Commission Regulation (EU) 2017/1485 of 2 August 2017 establishing a guideline on electricity transmission system operation was submitted to the Commission for Regulation of Utilities (CRU). On 15 September 2020 the CRU issued its Decision to Approve the applicability and scope of data exchange under KORRR in accordance with Article 40(5) of SOGL. This Decision to Approve states as follows:

In accordance with this Decision, the TSO is required to publish the approved submission on the applicability and scope of data exchange under key organisational requirements, roles and responsibilities which is provided in the annex of this Decision on the internet as required by Article 8 of the SOGL.

Furthermore, as detailed in the submission, it is expected that the TSO and DSO will publish an SGU KORRR Decision Paper, which will finalise their positions with regards to SGU coordination under the KORRR.In line with this Decision to Approve and for completeness, the EirGrid is publishing as follows:

  • The submission to the CRU under Article 40(5) of the SOGL is being made available here
  • The CRU Decision to Approve the applicability and scope of data exchange under KORRR is being made available here
  • EirGrid and ESB Networks' SGU KORRR Decision Paper is published here
