EFFICIENCY ON THE METERING DATA MANAGEMENT

Automated management and validation of metering data allows the payment of settlements with minimum delays.
Acquisition, validation and estimates of metering data

SOLUTION

BUSINESS NEED

The traditional telemetering tools have not helped to increase the efficiency on the metering data management processes since:
  • They usually require manual interventions to consolidate and validate data coming from different sources
  • They need external tools to exchange information with TSO
This complicates an immediate claim process when detecting possible disagreements concerning the metering data validated by TSO resulting in economic consequences for the producer.

SOLUTION

EMSuite provides a powerful metering data module allowing in one tool the download of the metering data (telemetering), the validation and the metering data estimate together with the calculation of the invoice points and other indicators. It can also act as secondary meter data concentrator face to TSO (download and sending of files, objection and claim management, etcetera).
Automation of the metering process to reduce costs

BENEFITS

COST REDUCTION

  • By automating the objection and claim management face to the TSO, the process can be improved and the financial costs related to the delay on the production metering data verification by the system operator can be reduced.
  • By centralising the processes of the metering data management in one tool, the costs related to the maintenance of several different applications are eliminated.

REDUCING THE EFFORT

  • An integrated system permitting the download of the metering data and the management of the related processes in a scheduled and unattended way result in a reduction of the human resources that are necessary to carry out these tasks.

TECHNOLOGICAL BENEFITS

  • Flexible tool that is integrated with other corporate systems that are already in use
  • Unified and centralised solution automating the whole metering process (from the production sites to the system operator)
  • A web-service based technological architecture enabling the incorporation of new functionalities on a rolling basis as well as the the adaptation with new regulatory changes and business needs.

REFERENCE

Acciona EnergĂ­a is one of the world leaders in the field of the renewable energies, with a production of 8,480MW through wind, hydroelectric, solar (thermoelectric, photovoltaic and thermal), biomass and cogeneration technologies. 70% of the capacity is located in Spain and the remaining in other thirteen countries all over the world.

NEED

Acciona’s need was to provide its control center for Renewable Energies (CECOER) with an integral tool permitting to centrally manage the electric metering data process worldwide.

SOLUTION

The solution offered by Tecsisa consisted of the implementation of the metering module EM Suite to manage all the information coming from the national and international meters in the Acciona facilities. It is in charge of the processes and communications with the Spanish System Operator acting as secondary concentrator to TSO. Subsequently the solution was extended to incorporate the metering points from Acciona Green, the group energy retailer.

BENEFICIOS

COST-SAVING

COST-SAVING

By centralising in one single tool the whole metering process for national and international sites and the resulting saving on the license and maintenance payment

EFFORT REDUCTION

EFFORT REDUCTION

75% effort reduction. The fact of having an integrated tool capable of executing the tasks in a scheduled and unattended way allows the personnel to perform other value added tasks
