Project setup

The energy market is becoming more and more complex. The decentralization of energy production and the higher share of renewables in the energy mix resulted in a major redesign of the market rules regarding balancing services, coordination of assets and grid congestion management by the Belgian transmission system operator (Elia).

One of the biggest players on the Belgian energy market started a project to comply to these new market rules and to improve the operational efficiency of their short term power optimization activities.

Trilations consultants were asked to assist in the execution of the 4 major steps of the project:

  1. Define the scope, business requirements and select a software partner for an asset optimization tool.
  2. Perform a thorough business analysis: The impact of the new market rules on the activities is analyzed and the TO-BE business processes are modeled, a business information model is drafted and the stakeholder requirements are documented.
  3. Identify the functional and non-functional solution requirements, so they can be implemented via an agile approach.
  4. Test the solution to ensure the quality and fit for purpose.

The project is still in progress, with the following intermediate milestones already reached: The market compliancy changes for mFRR and aFRR balancing services were realized and the optimization tool is used daily to optimize the thermal assets.
