The switch to MIG6 is causing a lot of changes within the Settlement & DAM department of ENGIE Electrabel. Among other things, this department covers allocation, reconciliation, grid fee processing and reporting. With the help of Moore Business Consulting, that adjustment went smoothly.
What were the challenges associated with this project?
MIG6 is an exchange protocol for different actors in the electricity and natural gas market in Belgium (energy suppliers, distribution system operators, system operators). It makes it possible to keep a central register of connections and to provide the necessary information (such as count data) to the involved parties.
The conversion to the MIG6 protocol is quite complicated, and takes place in various phases.
- Establishing the blueprints;
- Defining the tests;
- Approving the developments.
This complexity required an active and in-depth knowledge and operational experience of current market processes, as well as a good understanding of the influence of MIG6 on these processes. ENGIE found the desired support from Moore Business Consulting.
Active support at every stage
Despite a tight project schedule, Moore Business Consulting succeeded in assisting ENGIE and achieving its stated goals. “Thanks to a smooth and rapid integration of the Moore team into our specialised teams, the blueprints were written smoothly. The support during the development and during the validation testing allowed us to work in an agile way, in short cycles, integrated into a global schedule. Elements of the value chain that needed specific attention in the transition to MIG6 were identified, and actions were linked together to address them," said a satisfied Olivier Langaskens, Metering, Settlement & Reporting Manager at ENGIE Electrabel Group.
