The EU is moving towards greater integration of electricity market arrangements to facilitate greater trading across Europe (Regulation 714/2009 of the European Parliament and Council ) EU Congestion Management Guidelines require re-allocation of unused Interconnector capacity on both D-1 and D Definition (art. 2.2 (c)): "congestion" means a situation in which an interconnection linking national transmission networks cannot accommodate all physical flows resulting from international trade requested by market participants, because of a lack of capacity of the interconnectors and/or the national transmission systems concerned. Why Intra-Day Trading?
Ireland Infringement Letter - June 2010 Continuing infringement cases against Ireland for violating Electricity Regulations. Issues: 1) no intra-day congestion management mechanism 2) no common co-ordinated congestion management method Congestion

Overview of IDT functional changes 12 REGISTRATION No system changes. TRADING (Pricing and Scheduling) Major change 5 Pricing Runs per Day (EA, EA2, WD1, EP1, EP2) instead of 3. Day-Ahead Market: EA and EA2. Within Day Market: WD1 Ex-Post Market (no changes): EP1 and EP2. Important Note: SEM systems are being upgraded to allow flexibility to include additional (>5) gates in the future, if such a change were to be directed by the SEM Committee. As such, it is recommended that Market Participant systems are also designed with similar flexibility.
Overview of IDT functional changes 13 BID SUBMISSIONS BID submission for up to three runs per day (EA, EA2 and WD1) EA market will open for bids as per existing timing (TD-29) EA will close for COD bids at 09:30 TD-1. EA will close for VTOD selection at 09:20 TD-1. EA2 market will open for bids at 09:30 TD-1. EA2 will close for COD bids at 11:30 TD-1. EA2 will close for VTOD selection at 11:20 TD-1. WD1 market will open for commercial bids at 11:30 TD-1. WD1 will close at 08:00 on TD. VTOD selection is not applicable to Within-Day trading window. The latest “Accepted & Utilised” VTOD set will be used. That is, from EA or EA2. Note: All markets will have the same number of intervals as existing Trading Days 48 for normal day, 46 for short day, 50 for long day
Overview of IDT functional changes 14 BID SUBMISSIONS – new elements All COD submissions must include a new field: "GATE WINDOW" GATE WINDOW possible values: EA, EA2, or WD1. Interconnector COD will include an optional new field: “PRIORITY ORDER“. Priority Order is used to prioritise Interconnector Units under the same Code Participant - required for Offered Exposure calculations for Credit Risk purposes. Priority Order has default value = 1 More details on Interconnector Trading in later slides VTOD Selection must include a new field: "GATE WINDOW" with possible values: EA or EA2.
Overview of IDT functional changes 15 NEW REPORTS / PUBLICATIONS 40 new reports – comprising: 30 reports based on 15 existing Ex-Ante reports (split out into EA, EA2, WD1) 15 new EA2 reports 15 new WD1 reports Note: existing EA reports will have “EA” appended to the end of filename (example to follow) 4 brand new reports (which make up 10 reports) “Excluded Bids” (3 HTML/XML versions: EA, EA2, WD1) “Available Credit Cover” (5 HTML/XML versions: EA, EA2, WD[x], EP1, EP2) “MSP Cancellation” (1 HTML/XML report, ad-hoc) “Cancelled Reallocation Agreement” (1 CSV report, daily and ad-hoc) EA, EA2 and WD1 reports will contain the full set of Trading Intervals as per existing EA reports.

Project Schedule summary 23
Project Milestones - Approval 24 SEMC approval to implement Mod_18_10: Intra-Day Trading was received on March 4 th, 2011 and stipulated the following: The implementation will reflect the High Level Design Summary as proposed by the Modifications Committee following an extensive working group consultation which had widespread involvement from across the Industry; The CMS changes which are required for Intra-Day Trading will be developed in parallel with Modification Committee discussions on the required drafting to the TSC. All changes to the TSC will be subject to a final Modifications Committee vote and subsequently approved or otherwise by SEMC, as is the normal process; and The timeframe for rollout of the Intra-Day Trading solution will be mid Mod_43_10: Price Taker Generator Units and Firm Access was approved by the SEMC on June 7 th. Our vendors have confirmed there is sufficient capacity available for this change and it has been included in scope. Note the Release Cut-Off Date for the SEM R2.0.0 release to the CMS is August 5 th, 2011.
Project Milestones – Detailed Requirements / Contract 25 Detailed Requirements phase: December 1 st 2010 to April 30 th 2011 Detailed Requirements derived from the High Level Design Summary as proposed by the Modifications Committee; Five iterations of the Detailed Requirements Baseline, covering all subsystems, were generated. Three workshops held with our vendors (December, January & April) to develop a common understanding of the Detailed Requirements; Baseline 5.0 formed the basis of the Statement of Work with our vendors and was signed off at the end of April. Contract was formally signed with our vendors mid-June following extensive discussions re the Statement of Work, Project Governance, schedule etc.
Project Milestones – Vendor Detailed Design Phase 26 Vendor Detailed Design phase: May 3rd to July 29 th 2011 Multiple iterations of review of vendor design documentation; Week long face to face design walkthrough with vendors to: Provide direction/clarification on detailed requirements; and Ensure vendor and SEMO have a common understanding of the detailed requirements. Detailed Design closed July 29 th – some immaterial comments outstanding which will be delivered in the “as built” documentation suite.
Project Milestones – Participant Design Deliverables – MPUD / MPI 27 MPUD (including XSD files): target publication date August 29 th 2011 The MPUD is a representation (translations) of the vendor design for Participant consumption. As communicated at MOUG of July 19 th the MPUD will be re-engineered following consultation with Participants into a number of constituent documents as follows: MPUD Overarching Document; MPUD Market Interface Volume 1 (Trading and Registration); MPUD Market Interface Volume 2 (Reporting); and MPUD Technical Volume. The MPUD will be subject to change as follows: Possibility of late addition to scope, e.g. release cut-off date August 5 th etc.; Development of Mod_18_10 in parallel introduces a possibility of change; and Changes forced on our vendors as development progresses. MPI User Guide: target publication date January 30 th 2012 This document will reflect the “as-built” systems (i.e. post development and delivery) Predominantly geared towards Type 2 Participants.
Project Milestones – Factory Testing (FT) 28 Factory Test phase: November 14 th to December 23 rd Conducted at vendor site; Executed by vendors and witnessed by SEMO; Scripted tests/scenarios approved by SEMO; Objectives: Test that the systems and software functions correctly in line with the agreed design Demonstrate that the software can be delivered for System Integration Testing. Strict Exit Criteria will apply before SEMO will accept delivery of software.
Project Milestones – System Integration Testing (SIT) 29 System Integration Test phase: January 3 rd 2012 to April 27 th 2012 Internal test phase conducted at SEMO site; Fully scripted against agreed requirements and design; Executed by SEMO (with the exception of UUC Certification), supported by our vendors; Objectives: Test that the systems and software functions correctly in line with the agreed design; and Verify the integration of the systems with legacy systems and external interfaces. This time period also encompasses a number of additional test phases: Certification Testing (independent third-party verification of UUC); TSO / IA Testing; Technical Testing; and Performance Testing.
Project Milestones – Market Trial (MT) 30 Market Trial: Preparation – January 27 th to April 30 th 2012 Execution – April 30 th to July 6 th 2012 Industry wide test phase, managed and co-ordinated by SEMO Will have a dedicated test team Consultation with Industry will begin in January 2012 Objectives: test the inter-operability of participant systems and processes with the CMS; test compliance of the participant business systems and processes with their obligations as defined in the T&SC; and test all market procedures and the ability of Market Participants and SEMO (in its role as Market Operator) to follow these procedures. Full simulation of Market Operations including Market Participants, TSOs, IA etc. Fully scripted against agreed requirements and design. IDT Participant Training will be held in advance (early April). Connectivity testing one week prior to execution phase. Environment available for ad-hoc testing post Market Trial and before deployment.
Project Milestones – Deployment 31 Proposed deployment date is July 20 th 2012 subject to: successful completion of all phases of testing; and all parties have indicated readiness to proceed with deployment.
October 2012 release to the Central Market Systems 32 When considering work programmes and resources for the IDT release, Participants should note that the October 2012 release (SEM R2.1.0) to the Central Market Systems will proceed as scheduled.

Project Communications and Engagement – Systems Group (1 of 2) 34 To ensure effective and clear communication of project progress and activities SEMO will adopt the following communications strategy for the duration of the project: Monthly Project Management Forum (PMF) meetings and/or conference calls to: Deliver project progress updates; Communicate upcoming activities; Communicate changes (if any); and Discuss any topics as requested by Market Participants. Face to Face Meetings will alternate between Dublin and Belfast. Meetings will commence approximately 2 weeks after the MPUD is initially issued. Dedicated design workshops to cover MPUD and technical changes (number and dates to be confirmed). Normal updates will also be communicated via: The MOUG meetings and conference calls; and The SEMO website (www.sem-o.com). Note Market Trial will have a dedicated and separate communications plan which will be consulted on in January 2012.
Project Communications and Engagement – Systems Group (2 of 2) 35 At key milestones of the project, Participants will be invited to indicate their state of readiness in the context of the overall schedule. Suggested milestones are as follows: November 2011, as Factory Test commences; End February 2012, two months prior to Market Trial; (mid way through SIT); Mid-April 2012 (2 weeks prior to the beginning of Market Trial); Beginning of June 2012 (mid-way through Market Trial); and Beginning of July (towards the end of Market Trial). These indicators will enable SEMO to effectively manage any potential risk to the overall programme and put in place: any necessary measures to mitigate any associated risk and/or put in place appropriate contingency measures if required.
