 Business Liaison Group 


The Business Liaison Group (BLG) is the I-SEM forum for communication, consultation and coordination with Market Participants regarding the functional and process aspects of I-SEM implementation. The principal focus of the BLG is to provide business input into business process and system specification activities, particularly those related to participant interfaces.

The BLG will also serve as a forum for Market Participants to communicate with each other regarding business challenges they face in the implementation of their own processes, procedures, systems and organisational changes, thereby assisting their own readiness programmes for market go-live.

Membership of the BLG is open to all Market Participants. Individuals participating in the BLG are expected to have strong relevant functional/business skills and knowledge of related processes and systems within their companies, in order to enable them to understand the material


BLG Objectives


  • Communication : To share relevant functional and business information related to the I-SEM with Market Participants. A key objective is to ensure that participants are in a position to implement the required changes, within their own companies, in order that they are able to successfully interface with central market processes and systems.
  • Consultation : To provide a mechanism for participants to offer input and provide feedback on functional/business matters related to central market processes and systems.
  • Coordination : To facilitate the effective coordination of industry-wide activities, such as the Market Readiness and Market Trial.

The BLG will meet on a ad-hoc basis and will be chaired and supported by Eirgrid’s I-SEM Participant Engagement and Market Readiness (PEMR) workstream. Notification of meeting locations and times will be provided in advance of each meeting in a timely and convenient manner.

The I-SEM Project Webpage will be used to communicate Agendas, Meeting Notes and Issues Log for BLG meetings, as well as relevant documents and calendars.

The frequency of meetings may vary in line with I-SEM Project milestones and deliverables. This will be agreed with BLG Members.
