How to map EEG inquiry processes in the SAP system

The Renewable Energy Sources Act (EEG) presents energy suppliers and grid operators with major challenges. In particular, the mapping of customer applications for the connection and commissioning of an EEG generation plant can be complex. Simplifying the mapping of these processes in SAP helps enormously to ensure that the legal requirements are not only met in theory, but also in practice.

From the field

 CLC xinteg has implemented an SAP add-on for a large grid operator in the Saarland, which eliminates the manual administrative work previously required and is a forward-looking solution for all requests for EEG generation plants. in the in-house SAP system depicts.

Particularly important for energy companies: The Renewable Energy Sources Act contains a special regulation for the Priority connection of renewable energy systems. In concrete terms, this means that grid operators must must be connected to the grid "immediately" (§ 8 EEG). 

Furthermore, network operators are obliged to Processes for submitting connection requests and the necessary Digitizing the exchange of information. This also includes the provision of web portals for end customers to submit applications themselves.

Particularly important for energy companies

In addition, network operators must Format and the Contents standardize the information and web portals as far as possible. This also affects a CLC customer who, as a Saarland-based network operator for municipal utilities and industrial customers, is affected by the regular changes to the law and has to implement them internally accordingly.

How the project was implemented for the customer

The Saarland grid operator was confronted with a large number of applications for new installations, extensions or dismantling of EEG generation plants of private end customers. The "flood" of applications was hardly manageable due to the manual procedure and the associated workload for the clerks. The solution proposed by the CLC experts: The digitalization and simplification of these processes with the help of modern Fiori apps in the network operator's in-house SAP system. And this despite the fact that the SAP standard does not offer a solution for this.

The SAP IS-U module is mainly used in the energy supplier and grid operator sector. The integration of data from external sources was another necessary prerequisite for mapping the EEG application and approval processes. The customer is currently using a Fully digitalized process, from the Data entry in the web portal by the end customer themselvesuntil the automated creation of a suitable process in SAP. In addition to coping with the flood of applications, this also makes it possible to comply with legal requirements.
