CIM methodology

Executive Summary

The Common Information Model (CIM) methodology is widely used by GO15 members.

Most of the time CIM is used for information exchange within the company and for information exchange between different companies. Almost all companies use a master model and half of the companies use a CIM-based master model.

As a follow-up for further analysis, the working group recommends organizing experience-sharing webinars with some GO15 members (e.g. CAISO, KPX) and investigating extensions of common models (e.g. the CA line model).
