14 June 2012 updated translations of the market regulations published
Regulations C1, D1, F1 with appendix reports, H1, H2 and I have been updated.
May 2012 updated versions of documents and XML Schemas are available
During test of the STS we have identified a number of minor errors in code lists for some schemas. Therefore we need to publish version 1.0.2 of the XML schemas. The exact changes to the XML schemas are described in the ChangeLog file included in the Zip file.
New versions of Business Processes and EDI Transactions for the Danish electricity market have been added to the list of documents on this site.
April 2012 version 4.3 of APERAK, UTILMD, UTILTS and EDIFACT were uploaded to the site.
On 22 February 2011, we published the XML schemas, which are a technical supplement to the appendices to pseudo-regulation F.
The schemas are available in a zip file on www.energinet.dk/datahub to the right on the page. The opening of the zip file depends on your individual system.
The XML schemas are text files describing the structure of the messages the DataHub can send and receive.
An email about the XML schemas has been sent to the relevant persons.
On 7 March 2011, we published the descriptions of the EDIFACT messages (the so-called MIGs), which are a technical supplement to the appendices to pseudo-regulation F.
The descriptions are available in a text file on www.energinet.dk/datahub to the right of the page.
The MIGs describe the structure of the messages the DataHub can send and receive in EDIFACT format.
An email about the EDIFACT examples has been sent to the relevant persons.
Revised pseudo-regulations - now in English
The revised pseudo-regulations in English are now ready. As is the case with the Danish versions, a new revised English version is also now available along with a version showing the changes made. The versions showing the changes have TC added to the end of their names.
The DataHub project
The DataHub is a market register aimed at simplifying the extensive data traffic between the players in the Danish electricity market. The register is part of the continued liberalisation of the Danish electricity market, the purpose being to increase competition in the market to the benefit of the consumers. Today, the players communicate direct with each other, but from 2012 they only have to communicate with the DataHub. This will make it easier for the electricity consumers to change supplier and to access their own consumption data. It was the then Climate and Energy Minister, Connie Hedegaard, who in April 2009 asked Energinet.dk to start setting up a market register for the Danish electricity market in cooperation with the electricity market players.
Changes to the regulations
We are currently reviewing all the regulations in collaboration with the Danish Energy Regulatory Authority to ensure the final method approval. As a consequence, some text revisions will be made in the regulations which will, however, not have any procedural consequences for the implementation of the DataHub, and new versions of the regulations will therefore not be placed on our website.
Regulation H1 has been changed
In respect of chapters 10.1.1 and 10.2.1; Procedure for establishing a new metering point as connected and newly established, respectively. A working group under the Danish Energy Association, which maintains the Joint Regulation, has requested that we change the text under pt. 3, line 3, which deals with the time when the grid company establishes a metering point in the DataHub. The text is changed from '…after receipt of the registration form.' to '…after having sent the message about the point of connection.' Furthermore, a change has been made to Figure 10 'Establishment of a new metering point as connected': The text in the box between 'Electrical contractor' and 'Grid company' has been changed from 'Agreement on connection' to 'Registration and message about point of connection'. The change is made to help grid companies carry out their processes.
Questions regarding the change can be directed at firstname.lastname@example.org.
