With our Data Collection and Aggregation (DC/DA) service you could get a clearer and more accurate understanding of how much energy your business uses, and help identify whether you could make significant energy savings and carbon reductions.
Good quality data is essential for managing your energy consumption and ensuring that you only pay for what you use. We can provide you with high quality data because we operate the complete metering, collection and aggregation process on your behalf as an integrated service, helping to maximise accuracy and minimise the risk of data issues affecting your supply bill.
TED’s robust, secure and advanced suite of data services not only ensures accurate billing, but also provides invaluable up-to-date information for effective energy management.
We understand that in today’s climate, organisations don’t just have to take good care of their cash flow: they also have a duty to reduce their impact on the environment. This cannot be achieved without access to comprehensive energy consumption data.
We work in partnership with one of only a few companies in the UK to be fully qualified as a MOP and have the ability to perform NHH and HH DC/DA.
We process the remotely retrieved meter readings and send the validated data to the supplier, to enable timely and accurate energy bills and ensure the data is settled in accordance with industry procedures.
So, don’t settle for second best. If you would like to benefit off the excellent data collection and aggregation services that we provide at The Energy Desk, simply give our team a call now on 08458 389 830.
All half hourly metering supplies need a DC, if you do not have one in place, your energy supplier will apply a default DC.
The DC is responsible for the collection and processing of your electricity data, whilst transferring it across to your DA and electricity supplier.
All half hourly supplies require a DA. It is a mandatory to have a DA for your electricity supply, however, your energy supplier may not provide one. Therefore, if you don’t have your own DA set up, a default DA will be given to you.
The DA is responsible for the aggregation of your metered data in accordance with industry standards.

You may be aware that Data Collection and Data Aggregation (DC/DA) charges – sometimes referred to as settlement charges – form part of your half-hourly electricity supply bill.
These costs vary from supplier to supplier and are usually between £200 to £350 per annum. The DC/DA will be chosen and appointed by your electricity supplier unless you instruct them of your chosen provider.
Many organisations are not aware that it is possible to choose your own DC/DA and depending on current arrangements can save between 10 and 50% on the cost of this service.
The Data Collector (DC) is an organisation accredited to carry out Data Collection for half-hourly metering systems. The DC is appointed by the Supplier to retrieve and validate metering data and forward it to the Data Aggregator. The DC may be appointed by the customer but must always be accredited and contracted to the customer’s Supplier.
The Data Aggregator (DA) is an organisation accredited to carry out Data Aggregation for half-hourly metering data. The DA is appointed by the Supplier to aggregate consumption from half-hourly Data Collector(s) so that this can be validated and used for billing.
Usually the data collector and data aggregator are the same company but this is not essential.
