An Access Point (AP) corresponds to an Injection and/or Offtake Point to the Elia Grid. Every Access Point is associated with one or more meter(s).
Clients receive messages containing the aggregated metering data values for each Access Point specified in their contracts with Elia.
Access Point messages are received by clients who can be producers or consumers of energy, or both. The direction of the energy flow is indicated in the message and the values are always positive. These messages identify the client, the Access Point, and all the parameters describing the power transferred as well as the actual power values.
