Business Context and Use

The Utilities Point Of Delivery can be either a point of energy consumption (for example, a residential household, or factory), a feeding point for electricity or gas (for example, a power plant, windmill, or biogas plant) or an abstract location without any physical representation.

The Utilities Point Of Delivery may have an external identification assigned by a party (for example, according to metering code) and can be used as a common means of identification in communication between market roles in liberalized utilities markets. For more information about the business context, see the Utilities Point Of Delivery Management process component.
