ELMO: AN INTEROPERABILITY ONTOLOGY FOR THE ELECTRICITY MARKET

Panos Alexopoulos, Konstantinos Kafentzis, Christoforos Zoumas

Abstract

The liberalization of the electricity market in the European Union is a process of significant importance that aims at creating an efficient deregulated internal electricity market within the Union. An important challenge towards that end is definitely the development of effective market mechanisms and regulations that will comprise the operational framework of the market. Equally important, however, we consider the development of an interoperability framework that will enable the effective and unproblematic interaction between the market participants at both human and system level. Towards that direction we propose in this paper the Electricity Market Ontology (ELMO), an ontological model that provides a shared, common understanding of concepts and procedures regarding the electricity market operation. ELMO has been developed for the Hellenic Transmission System Operator (HTSO) and it is currently used by the organization for providing intelligent information access services to people interested in the market.
