Abstract: Energy distribution companies nowadays use different IT-systems from
vendors within their infrastructure. Those systems often use proprietary data
exchange formats and must be connected to other systems. Building specialized
adaptors for interconnection between the systems is the most common and time-
consuming task for IT-departments at energy companies. The Common
Information Model (CIM) establishes a common language and domain model for
energy management systems and related data structures. Instead of connecting all
systems and building up a meshed net, it is possible to connect the systems to a an
integration platform using the CIM as a common language. This paper will
discuss the CIM and its benefits and focusses on a current industrial project
conducted by the authors which integrates CIM as a standard for data exchange
between energy management related systems.
