Electrical Energy Pricing Working Group Develop a price message format based upon the FIX protocol FIX Protocol Ltd. North American Energy Standards Board Kickoff Meeting September 1, Copyright (c) FIX Protocol Ltd.
Agenda Introduction Anti-trust guidance Adoption of agenda Review the priority action plan agreed upon during the NIST Smart Grid meeting and scope definition Definition of energy instruments sometimes referred to an electrical energy price message format or more appropriate a price for energy with terms and conditions We are not focused on a pricing model or parameters of a model This working group will not define or create business practices for the energy markets Overview of the FIX Protocol Ltd organization and the FIX Standard for those outside the financial industry Overview of the FIX Instrument Component Presentation of an initial concept Next steps/Other business Adjourn Copyright (c) FIX Protocol Ltd.2
PAP03: Price Product Develop Common Specification for Price and Product Definition Price is more than a number. Price is a number associated with product characteristics. Already identified product characteristics include delivery schedule, quality, environmental characteristics, and regulatory characteristics. A common specification for price is a precursor to new market developments, to demand response, to distributed energy resources, to understanding meter information, and to every other hand-off between domains. Objectives: Develop a summary of product characteristics of interest to energy consumers. Develop summary of power reliability and quality characteristics that affect price and availability (supply side) and desirability (demand side). Develop and implement a plan to expedite harmonized standards development and adoption within the associated standards bodies Copyright (c) FIX Protocol Ltd.3

Think Message Format not Price Model We are not here to define how energy pricing is derived This is not how to calculate a price based upon a pricing model The purpose of a Message to convey Price is to provide sufficient information to the recipient so that they can understand WHAT is being priced not HOW it is being priced So the Price Message Format is about identifying those characteristics, values, and identifiers that make the product, in this case a quantity of electricity at a specified interval The Price Message Format will contain some of the same values needed to calculate a price – but only those that identify what is being priced The question to be asked when deciding what to include in the format- does the recipient need a particular value (or attribute) to understand what they are buying?

FIX Features FIX is the pre-eminent global messaging protocol for the pre-trade and trade environment up to pre-settlement for securities FIX is an open standard for multiple security classes, facilitating greater STP FIX provides seamless connectivity to multiple counter-parties and enhances price transparency and access to liquidity. It is a superior solution that reduces reliance on broker and vendor proprietary solutions It enables accurate real time updating of portfolio and trading management systems for pre-trade, trade and pre-settlement The FIX Protocol is owned and maintained by FIX Protocol Limited, a not- for-profit industry association of approximately 200 firms from across the financial services sector. Representatives from these firms dedicate time and resource to ensure that the FIX Protocol is continually enhanced to meet the ever evolving needs of this sector Copyright (c) FIX Protocol Ltd.
FIX as a solution has expanded considerably FIX started within the buy-side to sell-side to communicate indication of interest (IOIs) then order routing for equities Quickly (a matter of a 2-3 years) added additional asset classes FX Listed Derivatives Fixed Income Quickly added additional business areas and processes Allocations Quote driven market support Market data Exchange / ATS / ECN support Reference data Trade capture and trade reporting Listed derivatives clearing Pre-trade through post-trade pre-settlement across multiple asset classes Copyright (c) FIX Protocol Ltd.7
FIX Usage Statistics Low Latency FIX supports round trip times in the 100 microseconds using tag=value format High Capacity OPRA market data as of July 2008 – 907,000 messages per second Include stats on listed derivatives > 100 Million FIXML messages transmitted by Chicago Mercantile Exchange Clearing House and The Options Clearing Corporation to clearing firms each day Adoption Majority of financial exchanges globally support the FIX Protocol Regulatory adoption US: SEC, CFTC, Exchanges, clearing houses Europe: MiFID Canada: IIROC Brazil: BM&F Bovespa Copyright (c) FIX Protocol Ltd.
FIX supports Multiple Syntaxes Original syntax: Tag = Value ASCII syntax for extensible data representation FIX session layer is a reliable delivery transport Used over TCP High performance for transactional data flows Syntax: FIXML Defined by XML Schema Ideal for web-enabled applications Used for virtually all derivatives post-trade in the United States Syntax: FAST Binary-encoded and highly optimized Used today for high volume market data feeds Copyright (c) FIX Protocol Ltd.

FIX and Markets FIX supports a number of market models used globally Order driven All market participants submit orders which are matched Various levels of the order book are distributed as market data Quote driven (tradeable) Market makers submit quotes – usually for two sided markets Market participants submit orders which are matched against quotes and other orders Various levels of the book (including quotes and orders) are distributed as market data Quote driven (indicative) Market makers submit quotes Bulletin board Trades are completed outside of the system – can use trade reporting Market maker indicative quoting is distributed as market data Other hybrid models also supported Copyright (c) FIX Protocol Ltd.
The FIX Standards Process Need is identified; Gap Analysis document created and submitted as a proposal GTC Governance board has 7 days to accept the proposal Gap Analysis reviewed in the appropriate Committee or Working Group Gap Analysis reviewed by the Global Technical Committee (GTC) Gap Analysis posted for public comment (15 or 30 days) Vote by GTC Governance Board (7 days) Repository updated by creating an Extension Pack Firms can immediately use the new functionality through the approved Extension Pack Extension Packs are aggregated into a Service Pack release at an interval of 12 to 18 months Gap Analysis creation to Extension Pack completion can take as little as 2 months Copyright (c) FIX Protocol Ltd.
FIX and Energy markets The FIX Instrument Component is used to define products Unit of Measure – contract quantity unit of measure Fixed Magnitude UOM Bcf = Billion cubic feet MMbbl = Million Barrels MMBtu = One Million BTU MWh = Megawatt hours Variable Quantity UOM Bbl = Barrels Bu = Bushels lbs = pounds Gal = Gallons oz_tr = Troy Ounces t = Metric Tons (aka Tonne) tn = Tons (US) USD = US Dollars Alw = Allowances PriceUnitOfMeasure – unit of measure of the price if different from contract UOM Copyright (c) FIX Protocol Ltd.
Flow Schedule Type The industry standard flow schedule by which electricity or natural gas is traded. Schedules exist by regions and on-peak and off-peak status, such as "Western Peak". 0 = NERC Eastern Off-Peak 1 = NERC Western Off-Peak 2 = NERC Calendar-All Days in month 3 = NERC Eastern Peak 4 = NERC Western Peak Copyright (c) FIX Protocol Ltd.14
Calendaring ISO European Central Bank lead Target 2 Securities initiative Defining a standard set of messages for communicating calendars Common requirement for financial securities as well as energy commodity contracts Different underlying data Effort is being addressed by SWIFT, FPL, FISD, and industry vendors such as CoppClark Copyright (c) FIX Protocol Ltd.15
FIX and Other Standards FIX and FIXML are the only accepted syntaxes for the pre-trade and trade messages in ISO for equities, fixed-income, and listed derivatives FPL participates in Accredited Standards Committee X.9 for Financial Services FPL helped to organize and lead the effort to create an industry standard road map within the financial securities industry with SWIFT, ISDA/FpML, and ISITC. This group has now expended to include XBRL-US and SIIA/FISD FPL has memorandum of understandings in place with the Futures Industry Association (FIA), OMG, SIFMA Copyright (c) FIX Protocol Ltd.
Conclusions: FIX and the Smart Grid FIX is the preeminent standard for financial markets globally Markets have achieved extremely high performance with FIX FIX has multiple syntaxes tailored to business needs, from web- enabled appliances to extremely high volume market data feeds FPL has a history of working with other standards bodies, promoting interoperation between standards, and incorporating other standards within FIX FIX integrates well with market regulation The FIX standards process is agile and flexible, and can accommodate the business needs of the electricity market FPL has considerable expertise in standards for markets; we feel that collaborating with industry experts in electricity will result in the best market pricing standards Copyright (c) FIX Protocol Ltd.
