A First International Standard on a CIM-Based Business Process for Energy Markets

(PresseBox) (Brussels, ) On 20 September 2013, the ''Acknowledgement business process and contextual model for CIM European market'' was approved by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) as an International Standard - IEC 62325-451-1. This is the first CIM-based business process for energy markets.

The Framework for energy market communications - Acknowledgement business process and contextual model for CIM European market (IEC 62325-451-1), targets the acknowledgement business process within Europe's IEM and based on interoperability (IOP) tests conducted by ENTSO-E in June and December 2012, includes all capability needed to support the already implemented exchanges for the acknowledgement business process implemented within ENTSO-E.

Since 2009, ENTSO-E has supported the integration, at an International level, of Member TSOs' business requirements and use cases into the Common Information Model (CIM), and contributions to its further development. For market-related exchanges, this has been accomplished through ENTSO-E's liaison with IEC TC 57's WG 16.

ENTSO-E thanks its Members for their support in bringing TSO requirements into the CIM, working towards the harmonisation and implementation of standardised electronic data interchange.
