Introduction & Speakers
Communication has become a major success factor for players in the liberalized energy market. The liberalization generates a huge data flow between market parties, for example:
Grid operators need a more frequent access to meters and have to exchange the meter data with traders and transmission system operators (TSO/ISO);
Control centers throughout Europe need to exchange on-line technical data to preserve the security of the European transmission system;
Electricity suppliers exchange commercial data with TSO/ISO’s to contract transmission capacity;
Balance responsible companies must transfer their schedules to the TSO/ISO;
Suppliers exchange consumer data when the consumer changes supplier.

This data exchange is more efficient and cost effective using (less) communication standards. Market parties can reduce communication costs using these standards.

New standards are introduced to increase efficiency of grid operations in control centers and substation.
To reduce the telecommunication infrastructure costs companies (like to) use one wide area network instead of many point-to-point links. Is it possible to combine real-time and non-real-time data, which communication protocols are available and how do you migrate to such a wide area network?

KEMA has invited a number of outstanding speakers from utilities and IT industries that will give an update on latest developments and share their experiences with the participants.
Chairman of the seminar:
M. van Riet - NUON, The Netherlands.
