EURELECTRIC and ebIX has agreed to establish the "EURELECTRIC and ebIX Liaison group"

The main task of the Eurelectric and ebIX Liaison group is creating a harmonised market framework for the liberalized electricity market. In order to achieve this goal, business models will be discussed and decided.

Eurelectric will be responsible for dealing with the business issues and ebIX project teams will take care of the technical issues, such as description in UML (Unified Modelling Language).

  • The Eurelectric and ebIX Liaison group will start with the switching process with focus on consumer relations.
  • The ETSO, EFET and ebIX Harmonised role model will be used to solve issues in the Eurelectric switch model.
  • The group will look into Core Components (CC), i.e. what kind of CCs should be prioritised for standardisation.

The first meeting in the EURELECTRIC and ebIX Liaison group was held in December 2006 and will be continued with two more meetings before May 2007.
