    • Acando review of NordREG proposal for Common Nordic end user market Mathias Malm. August 2010. © Acando AB
    • Contents ● Reason to Change ● Current Nordic Market trends ● Review of NordREG, Proposed Process… ● Suggested: Implementation approach ● Suggested: Time line for Change ● Suggested: Next step ● Acando © Acando AB 2010-09-01 Common Nordic end user market - Acando review of NordREG proposal
    • Reason to Change (1) Introduction ● Will Simplify entry of Suppliers from one region/country to new Nordic regions/countries ● Will be a cornerstone in a more efficient Market ● Will enhance Competition and entry of new Actors within the Nordic Market ● Will support improved Customer Orientation ● Is a step towards an integrated European Electricity Market © Acando AB 2010-09-01 Common Nordic end user market - Acando review of NordREG proposal
    • Reason to Change (2) Simplify entry of Suppliers from one region/country to new Nordic regions/countries ● A common Nordic End User market will simplify the entry for Electricity Supplier companies into new Nordic Regions and countries, who are currently present in one Nordic country. ● Lower thresholds for Suppliers within a Common Nordic End User Market ● A Common Nordic end user market will in addition to this improve efficiency for the Retailers and lower the unit costs © Acando AB 2010-09-01 Common Nordic end user market - Acando review of NordREG proposal
    • Reason to Change (3) Enhance Competition and entry of new Actors within the Nordic Market ● A larger market region will improve the interest for new Market Actors. ● New Actors as well as simplified “movement” of current country/region specific sales companies will increase the competition. ● Lager competition will as such increase the Customer Orientation… The market design of common Nordic end-user market should provide a harmonized framework for the suppliers to operate in various Nordic countries. © Acando AB 2010-09-01 Common Nordic end user market - Acando review of NordREG proposal
    • Reason to Change (4) Improved Customer Orientation ● Today, the Customer: Has Two contracts and Two separate bills Receive energy to one premise (site) Receive Monthly information about consumption Controls consumption based on Monthly information (readings) Can not deliver energy ● In the future, the Customer needs: Single Point of Contact and One bill Receive energy to Several different premises (e.g. car, home and summer cottage). Produce and Deliver energy (micro production) based on market need and receive payment for it. Control his energy consumption and avoid large peak consumption, based on: ● more detailed information (hourly). ● actual current energy price as well as prospective energy price. The common Nordic end-user market will be open to all customers and it shall be safe for the customers to buy electricity from any supplier . © Acando AB 2010-09-01 Common Nordic end user market - Acando review of NordREG proposal
    • Reason to Change (5) A step towards an integrated European Electricity Market ● The Energy Market is under influence of the European Union. Electricity market liberalisation is a central and discussed subject ● A true European liberated energy market is based on a common European end user market. Starting the work on a Nordic level will simplify the entry into the Common European user user market for all Nordic Market actors as well as the Nordic end customers. © Acando AB 2010-09-01 Common Nordic end user market - Acando review of NordREG proposal
    • Reason to Change (6) And for the DSO’s and TSO’s… ● Automated processes will increase the efficiency fro the DSO and TSO’s ● A Common Nordic end user market will decreased the risk, by: More clear and more stable market regulations. Taking one early step towards a common European end user market. ● Through improved processes and higher degree of automatisation, we expect to increase the quality of data quality. …which will increase the efficiency through less amount of manual work and re-work © Acando AB 01/09/2010 Common Nordic end user market - Acando review of NordREG proposal
    • Contents ● Reason to Change ● Current Nordic Market trends A base for the change… Example on Future Nordic market interaction ● Review of NordREG, Proposed Process… ● Suggested: Implementation approach ● Suggested: Time line for Change ● Suggested: Next step ● Acando © Acando AB 2010-09-01 Common Nordic end user market - Acando review of NordREG proposal
    • Current Nordic Market trends (1) A base for the change… ● Depending on Market Model which is specific for each country (and/or region), there are different roles for different market actors which have impact on business processes, e.g: DSO’s and TSO’s Retailers Central Node’s and Cont. Central Clearing house’s (specific for current regions) ● Various plans and regulations concerning the Measurement, Settlement and Billing of energy in various countries Finland and Sweden, about 100% AMR meters today, Finland in addition to this has Hourly measurement. Norway, AMR metering and Hourly measurement by 2016 (?) Denmark (?) When will Sweden comply to Hourly measurement for residential customers? 10 © Acando AB 2010-09-01 Common Nordic end user market - Acando review of NordREG proposal
    • Current Nordic Market trends (2) A base for the change… ● The Common Nordic end user market-scope include a lot of Business areas and Processes, Customers, IT-systems and Formats as well as Countries. ● This Forces Business Processes and Market Communication to be different between different markets and the common solution must manage the diverseness. ● In addition to this European and International trends must influence the common Nordic end user market. To design the Common Nordic end user market with this in mind will decrease future costs for all market actors within the Nordic. 11 © Acando AB 2010-09-01 Common Nordic end user market - Acando review of NordREG proposal
    • Example on Future Nordic market Interaction Focus on customer orientation together with new and improved services ● A common Nordic register with system operators and the other market participants is operated by “NordREG”. ● A national register of who is the distributor for each premise, who is the retail company etc is operated by the system operator in each country, e.g. “Svenska Kraftnät”. ● The distribution company maintain the premise in the national register The distribution company updates the national register when the move-in, move-out or supplier switch is done Distribution companies sends aggregated values for settlement to other market players ● Each retail company requests meter values directly from each distribution company, and the distribution company grant access to the information based on the contract with the retailer ● Supplier Centric Model where all or most Customer communication go through the Supplier/Retailer of electricity. © Acando AB 2010-09-01 Common Nordic end user market - Acando review of NordREG proposal
    • Contents ● Reason to Change ● Current Nordic Market trends ● Review of NordREG, Proposed Process… …towards a common Nordic end user market. Recommendations based on experience ● Suggested: Implementation approach ● Suggested: Time line for Change ● Suggested: Next step ● Acando © Acando AB 2010-09-01 Common Nordic end user market - Acando review of NordREG proposal
    • Review of NordREG, Proposed Process… (1) … towards a common Nordic End User Market ● Specification: Detailed specification regarding target Market Model. ● Design: Detailed specifications on common processes and systems will be developed and changes in national regulations should be adapted. ● Implementation: Phase, including coding, testing and deployment o systems. © Acando AB 2010-09-01 Common Nordic end user market - Acando review of NordREG proposal
    • Review of NordREG, Proposed Process… (2) tf Market Model ● Large impact of the proposed analysis from tf Customer Interaction! ● Good conclusions reagarding Customer and Market Actor needs and behaviour. ● National hubs/databases which stores a large amount of meter values are a good short term solution, but not recomended as a long term solution. This based on: Possibilities to increase Energy efficiency by ongoing development within Smart grids. Needs for Single point of Contact Increased drawback in cost and data quality, when the amount of duplicate databases increase. ● Tight but posible schedule, regardless of which Market communication path that is chosen. A use of a federated model where Structural premise data is stored centrally (in one or regional hubs) with bilateral data trafic between Market Actors will simplify the long term development within Customer Orientation, Smart Grids and Single Point of Contact. © Acando AB 01/09/2010 Common Nordic end user market - Acando review of NordREG proposal
    • Review of NordREG, Proposed Process… (3) tf Customer Interface ● Supplier Centric Model (CSM) will support a Customer Oriented Approach, Acando think this is a cornerstone in a succesfully implementation of a common Nordic end user market. Outside in thinking (from Customer and society) will promote the long term success! Tele Communication market may be an example on a predecessor… ● Much correlation between design of customer interface, data exchange and the market model is needed, this will have impact on the schedule presented. Final implementation of a Supplier Centric Model by 2015 is not realistic, according to the findings from the Task Force. ● We think ”SCM” is a long term lucrative model for all Market Actors, even if we support further investigations (according to the Appendixes) to enhance a succesfully implementation. Acando support the propsal of NordREG to perform further analysis regarding “SCM”. © Acando AB 01/09/2010 Common Nordic end user market - Acando review of NordREG proposal
    • Review of NordREG, Proposed Process… (4) tf Data Exchange ● Large impact of the proposed analysis from tf Customer Interaction and close relationship with Market Model findings. ● Critical area for success with large amount of data, which most likely will increase in the future (dependent on trends within Energy efficency and Customer orientation). ● A Long term model is essential to keep the overall cost low, current Euopean as well as future trends must be considered. ● Tight schedule to define a detailed design by 2012! © Acando AB 01/09/2010 Common Nordic end user market - Acando review of NordREG proposal
    • Review of NordREG, Proposed Process… (5) Recommendations based on experience ● Well defined and important Task forces, the result of which must be established within the project. ● Three essential (but not exhaustive) steps for a successfully implementation of common Nordic end user market suggested by NordREG (Specification, Design and Implementation). ● Based on this as well as on experience, we suggest a iterative process focusing on the need of the End User (Customer), the Task Forces and a “Plan-Do-Check-Act approach”: Plan: Include the two essential steps defined by NordREG (Design). This step include overall planning for all iterations as well as for the scope of the Do/Implement: Realization of the Business and System changes needed to fulfil the scope of the iteration. Check: Crucial evaluation of the iteration and created results. Act: Transfer knowledge and learning's to other iterations. These iterations can will support a successful implementation as well as decreasing the overall cost of a common Nordic end user market for all involved market actors (incl. Customers) and can to a defined level be executed in parallel. © Acando AB 01/09/2010 Common Nordic end user market - Acando review of NordREG proposal
    • Review of NordREG, Proposed Process… (6) Recommendations based on experience Iterations which have a clear focus within a individual possible area is important, such as: ● Common Nordic Retailer Market, available for all Customers: For a subset of Nordic Countries/Regions For all Nordic Countries For Additional Countries, a subset of Europe (possibly) ● Hourly consumption values to residential Customers (Information) ● Hourly pricing to residential Customers (Billing and Settlement) ● Single Point of Contact and Overall improved Customer Orientation, e.g. regarding: Supplier change and Information Exchange ● Increased Customer Control over energy consumption © Acando AB 01/09/2010 Common Nordic end user market - Acando review of NordREG proposal
    • Review of NordREG, Proposed Process… (7) Recommendations based on experience ● The Proposed end date (2015) is excellent but unfortunately not realistic based on: The Scope of Change The number of Market Actors and their various interest Market Regulators in several countries Needed Changes in Business as well as IT Current degree of Data Quality ● …based on this as well as our overall knowledge about the Utilitiy sector, we suggest to move this taget date to 2017 (with partial implementation by 2015). This will create a realistic time-line to implement a Customer focused Common Nordic end user market. This work must be based on the current findings from the three (by NordREG) well defined Task forces! © Acando AB 01/09/2010 Common Nordic end user market - Acando review of NordREG proposal
    • Contents ● Reason to Change ● Current Nordic Market trends ● Review of NordREG, Proposed Process… ● Suggested: Implementation approach ● Suggested: Time line for Change ● Suggested: Next step ● Acando © Acando AB 2010-09-01 Common Nordic end user market - Acando review of NordREG proposal
    • Suggested: Implementation approach (1) For all or a subset or countries/regions, focused on customer orientation ● Phase one - Hourly consumption values to residential customers two contract model to control his energy consumption based on hourly consumptions values ● Phase two - Hourly pricing to residential customers Two contract model to control his energy consumption based on energy price to control his energy consumption based on peak consumption to deliver surplus energy and get paid for it ● Phase three – Single point of contact one point of contact energy from several different premises to produce extra energy based based on market need ● Phase four – Increased Customer Control over energy consumption to control energy consumption based on energy prices 22 © Acando AB 01/09/2010 Common Nordic end user market - Acando review of NordREG proposal
    • Suggested: Implementation approach (2) Phase One - Hourly consumption values to residential customers Residential customer Hourly Hourly meter meter values values Retail company System operator Monthly Monthly meter values Meter values Distribution company Hourly meter values Existing UTILTS messages * Distribution Company, Retail Company New message format and Balance provider are the same Entity © Acando AB 01/09/2010 Common Nordic end user market - Acando review of NordREG proposal
    • Suggested: Implementation approach (3) Phase Two – Hourly pricing to residential customers Residential customer Price per Hourly Hourly KWh meter meter values values Spot price Retail company System operator Hourly Hourly Energy meter values meter values Demand Distribution company Limit energy Hourly meter values consumption Existing UTILTS messages * Distribution Company, Retail Company New message format and Balance provider are the same Entity © Acando AB 01/09/2010 Common Nordic end user market - Acando review of NordREG proposal
    • Suggested: Implementation approach (4) Phase Three – Single point of contact and residential customer produces energy Residential customer Hourly Meter Hourly values and meter Price per values KWh Spot price Retail company System operator Hourly Hourly Energy meter values meter values Demand Distribution company Limit energy Hourly meter Needed consumption values energy production Existing UTILTS messages * Distribution Company, Retail Company New message format and Balance provider are the same Entity © Acando AB 01/09/2010 Common Nordic end user market - Acando review of NordREG proposal
    • Suggested: Implementation approach (5) Phase Four – Control energy consumption from price perspective and smart meters Residential customer Hourly Meter Hourly values and meter Price per values KWh Spot price Retail company System operator Sport price Hourly Hourly Energy meter values meter values Demand Distribution company Spot Price Limit energy Hourly meter Needed consumption values energy production Existing UTILTS messages * Distribution Company, Retail Company New message format and Balance provider are the same Entity © Acando AB 01/09/2010 Common Nordic end user market - Acando review of NordREG proposal

    • Suggested: Next step (1) Based on Customer orientation ● Initiate with the Specification step according to NordREG proposal Including further analysis regarding SCM. Large degree of coordination between the NordREG task forces required. ● Define a End date when the all Changes are supposed to be active Based on the scope discussed previously in this documentation, Acando suggest 2017. ● Define Customer focused Business areas (incl interfaces) for Project iterations, in collaboration with: Market Actors. Customer representatives Market regulators. Market experts (Business processes and future trends experts). IT-solution vendors (Meter Data Management, Collection System, CIS and Billing/Settlement). ● Base the processes on well documented present frameworks as much as posible: ITIL. Current Market models within the Nordic as well as European Countries. 30 © Acando AB 01/09/2010 Common Nordic end user market - Acando review of NordREG proposal
    • Suggested: Next step (2) Based on Customer orientation ● Define Iteration roll out, in cooperation with the defined actors (above) ● Define roll out plan related to countries/region based on feedback from: Market Actors Customer representatives Market regulators ● Provide a a deatiled implementation plan to Nordic ministers (2010). Tight schedule for this detailed planning 31 © Acando AB 01/09/2010 Common Nordic end user market - Acando review of NordREG proposal
    • Suggested: Next step (3) Define Common Processes and Communication ● Specification (Plan) step should, be aimed to: Define the overall project goal as well as the goals for the specific iterations (incl. taget dates). • Acando proposal: (overall) by 2017. Define the overall structure for common Nordic Market Communication • Acando proposal: Federated market model. Define the common Business processes. • Acando proposal: Customer oriented Market communication Customer focused business processes 32 © Acando AB 01/09/2010 Common Nordic end user market - Acando review of NordREG proposal
