Siemens offers a central data hub for meter data in deregulated energy markets

05.11.2015

European Utility Week, 3. - 5. November 2015 in Wien

In the utility markets around the globe the evolution of the energy sector leads to rapid changes because of market liberalization forced by regulation, rollout of smart meters, distributed generation of energy, smart grid initiatives and emerging new technologies. Governments strive to empower consumers, speed up market processes, and create a competitive utility market.


With its Market Transaction Manager (MTM) solution Siemens offers a central data hub for Transmission System Owners (TSO), Distribution System Owners (DSO), power suppliers, aggregators, third party retailers, generators and prosumers in deregulated energy markets.

With its EnergyIP Market Transaction Manager (MTM) solution Siemens offers a central data hub for participants of deregulated energy markets. The Market Transaction Manager is designed to manage aggregation, change tracking, and the delivery of meter reads data for the purpose of enabling settlement transactions of a whole market.

With this application, the operator can give market participants access to meter reads data and aggregated usage data, analyze grid loss data, and exception processing by using only one interface. Based on a commercial off the shelf software the Siemens Market Transaction Manager is the one stop blueprint and solution for a risk free introduction of a central data hub.

Centralized data management is adopted especially in unbundled energy markets to enable, support and intensify the business processes of the utility market. In this markets where there are multiple players including Transmission System Owners (TSO), Distribution System Owners (DSO), suppliers, aggregators, third party retailers, generators and prosumers.

These market parties, along with regulatory drivers, can decide to set up centralized data management functionalities or to establish a central entity that handle business processes, meter data flow and data clearing functions. Consumers, market parties and the market itself (competitiveness) benefit from such a centralization of processes or a data hub like the Market Transaction Manager in case a central entity is established.

The key drivers for a central data hub like the Siemens Market Transaction Manager is, that there are equal market entry opportunities for all market parties and the possibility of an easy and fast switching of suppliers. Furthermore the central data hub promotes competition in the energy market and enables cost savings for DSO and other market parties. It enforces only one market model. This makes it easier for market partners to adapt to existing and new services.

The Market Transaction Manager solution is a single integration point for the market entities and his participants. All measurements (production as well as consumption) done by the meter data responsible market parties are delivered to the data hub. The market parties are DSO, TSO, power generation companies, renewable power recources and prosumers.

All measurements done by the participants above are delivered to the data hub like the Market Transaction Manager. It acts as the register for all the electricity meter values down to the local metering point in a whole market. One of the most important functionality of the MTM solution is the imbalance settlement and reconciliation for interval read metering points and profiled (register read) metering points.

The data hub receives and validates the metering data before sending them to the market parties requested those data. In this context Siemens EnergyIP Market Transaction Manager (MTM) solution acts as a system-of-record for metering data for the data hub markets. The solution includes the EnergyIP platform and the Market Transaction Management application. The MTM application is built on the proven, scalable, and multi-tenant EnergyIP big data platform.

The platform ensures reliable receipt, processing, storage and distribution of measurements provided by meter data responsible and other market parties. A missing read and reminder service helps meter data responsible to improve their service levels. Validation and estimation services guarantee that high quality data is available for market exports, reporting, and energy balance processing. The smart grid data model includes technical metering points to support metering concepts for distributed generation, flexible validations and virtual metering points. Last but not least EnergyIP furthermore offers the flexibility to introduce new smart grid services as demand response and virtual power plant solutions.

Im Focus: Designing Architecture with Solar Building Envelopes

Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.

As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...

Im Focus: How to inflate a hardened concrete shell with a weight of 80 t

At TU Wien, an alternative for resource intensive formwork for the construction of concrete domes was developed. It is now used in a test dome for the Austrian Federal Railways Infrastructure (ÖBB Infrastruktur).

Concrete shells are efficient structures, but not very resource efficient. The formwork for the construction of concrete domes alone requires a high amount of...

Im Focus: Bacterial Pac Man molecule snaps at sugar

Many pathogens use certain sugar compounds from their host to help conceal themselves against the immune system. Scientists at the University of Bonn have now, in cooperation with researchers at the University of York in the United Kingdom, analyzed the dynamics of a bacterial molecule that is involved in this process. They demonstrate that the protein grabs onto the sugar molecule with a Pac Man-like chewing motion and holds it until it can be used. Their results could help design therapeutics that could make the protein poorer at grabbing and holding and hence compromise the pathogen in the host. The study has now been published in “Biophysical Journal”.

The cells of the mouth, nose and intestinal mucosa produce large quantities of a chemical called sialic acid. Many bacteria possess a special transport system...

Im Focus: Repairing defects in fiber-reinforced plastics more efficiently

Fiber-reinforced plastics (FRP) are frequently used in the aeronautic and automobile industry. However, the repair of workpieces made of these composite materials is often less profitable than exchanging the part. In order to increase the lifetime of FRP parts and to make them more eco-efficient, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) and the Apodius GmbH want to combine a new measuring device for fiber layer orientation with an innovative laser-based repair process.

Defects in FRP pieces may be production or operation-related. Whether or not repair is cost-effective depends on the geometry of the defective area, the tools...
