The UK government’s Net Zero target has driven a significant reform of the energy industry with the introduction of Market-wide Half-Hourly Settlement (MHHS). This change will ensure that half-hourly meter readings from smart meters are the basis of actual charges to consumers, not broad estimates based on average use. This will, in turn, enable behavioral change at the consumer side of the industry. To enable such a change, industry participants will need the technology infrastructure to link into the DIP (Data Integration Platform). The DIP is a new message-oriented, event-driven infrastructure that Avanade are building on behalf of Elexon, the MHHS Programme, and the Industry overall.
Flui Technologies have a long history in building reliable and scalable half-hourly data systems, and we have leveraged this experience to produce our cloud-based DIP Adaptor to seamlessly link the DIP to internal systems such as our MarketFlow solution. Flui Technologies’ DCP as a Service integrates the Flui DIP Adapter, offering comprehensive DIP onboarding, MHHS qualification, and secure, reliable cloud-first DIP connectivity. Market participants can formally ‘place reliance’ on Flui as their DCP for all relevant testing as part of achieving MHHS Qualification.
