Making energy markets work


Compliance and Network Regulation ManagerIn a rapidly evolving energy world, clients rely on Gemserv’s expertise to help markets work efficiently and with integrity.

Our energy team, has over 100 years’ industry experience spanning across electricity, gas and renewables, and we play key roles in the design of retail markets, development of trading arrangements and the establishment of market processes.

We work with government departments, regulators and trade bodies, plus projects are also carried out with individual companies when there are industry-wide benefits which can be shared.

Our wide-ranging expertise means we are involved in many of the major policy developments and industry initiatives in the sector, including work on:

  • Developing and maintaining the Smart Energy Code that sits at the heart of the GB smart metering rollout;
  • Establishing the Single Electricity Market in Ireland – the first cross-border, wholesale electricity market of its kind in Europe;
  • Providing assurance on key market events and new entrants for the Retail Market Design Service (RMDS) in Ireland; and
  • Supporting implementation of the Green Deal programme by establishing frameworks and amendments to the Master Registration Agreement (MRA).

Longstanding roles Gemserv carries out in the industry include acting as the Registration Authority for the Meter Operation Code of Practice Agreement (MOCOPA) and administration of the Electricity Central Online Enquiry Service (ECOES).

In addition, we have acted as service provider for a number of organisations including the Gas Forum, the Association of Meter Operators (AMO), the Independent Gas Transporters’ Uniform Network Code (iGT UNC) and the UK Metering Forum (UKMF).

Although the focus of our work is at the market level, we also provide consultancy support to organisations looking to gain certification to the ISO 50001 energy management standard with advice from our expert consultants on the development and maintenance of an appropriate Energy Management System (EnMS).
