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: Data storage using individual molecules

Researchers from the University of Basel have reported a new method that allows the physical state of just a few atoms or molecules within a network to be controlled. It is based on the spontaneous self-organization of molecules into extensive networks with pores about one nanometer in size. In the journal ‘small’, the physicists reported on their investigations, which could be of particular importance for the development of new storage devices.

Around the world, researchers are attempting to shrink data storage devices to achieve as large a storage capacity in as small a space as possible. In almost...

Im Focus: Data use draining your battery? Tiny device to speed up memory while also saving power

The more objects we make "smart," from watches to entire buildings, the greater the need for these devices to store and retrieve massive amounts of data quickly without consuming too much power.

Millions of new memory cells could be part of a computer chip and provide that speed and energy savings, thanks to the discovery of a previously unobserved...

Im Focus: An energy-efficient way to stay warm: Sew high-tech heating patches to your clothes

Personal patches could reduce energy waste in buildings, Rutgers-led study says

What if, instead of turning up the thermostat, you could warm up with high-tech, flexible patches sewn into your clothes - while significantly reducing your...

Im Focus: Lethal combination: Drug cocktail turns off the juice to cancer cells

A widely used diabetes medication combined with an antihypertensive drug specifically inhibits tumor growth – this was discovered by researchers from the University of Basel’s Biozentrum two years ago. In a follow-up study, recently published in “Cell Reports”, the scientists report that this drug cocktail induces cancer cell death by switching off their energy supply.

The widely used anti-diabetes drug metformin not only reduces blood sugar but also has an anti-cancer effect. However, the metformin dose commonly used in the...

Im Focus: New Foldable Drone Flies through Narrow Holes in Rescue Missions

A research team from the University of Zurich has developed a new drone that can retract its propeller arms in flight and make itself small to fit through narrow gaps and holes. This is particularly useful when searching for victims of natural disasters.

Inspecting a damaged building after an earthquake or during a fire is exactly the kind of job that human rescuers would like drones to do for them. A flying...
