3.1. Actors

Actor NameActor TypeActor DescriptionFurther information specific to this Use Case
Data Exchange PlatformSystemData exchange platform (DEP) is a communication platform the basic functionality of which is to secure data transfer (routing) from data providers (e.g. data hubs, flexibility service providers, TSOs, DSOs) to the data users (e.g. TSOs, DSOs, consumers, suppliers, energy service providers). DEP stores data related to its services (e.g. cryptographic hash of the data requested). The DEP does not store core energy data (e.g. meter data, grid data, market data) while these data can be stored by data hubs. Several DEPs may exist in different countries and inside one country.
AggregatorBusinessAggregate and maximise value of portfolio(s) of resources (cf. definition in T3.3 deliverable).
Data UserBusinessAny person who uses data. Can be a Data Owner or a Data Delegated Third party.
Energy Service ProviderBusinessA party offering energy-related services to any other party (adapted from ENTSOE-EFET-ebIX harmonized role model).
Energy service provider (ESCO – energy service company) is a market-based role which is responsible for delivering energy services to the customers (or to other parties of behalf of the customers). In case these services necessitate the access to customer’s data, the consent of this customer is required. Examples of the executors of this role include aggregator, flexibility service provider, energy efficiency provider, energy monitoring provider.
Can also be an Aggregator or a Generator (cf. definitions in T3.3 deliverable).

Several national and regional FPs may exist.
