​​​This report addresses the needs for data exchange in the emerg- ing power system and discusses data exchange models, firstly providing an extensive overview of the existing solutions and setting criteria for them in a second step. Data exchange plat- forms have been introduced in many European countries, driven by a need for efficient processes and better data quality, initially in retail markets. 

Recent regulatory developments mandate in- creased cooperation and aim to empower customers to partici- pate actively in both the retail and wholesale energy markets, thus further increasing the requirement for data exchange between all stakeholders. Hence, future data exchange platforms can take on a role in the overall power system and point towards an integrated wholesale-retail market. 

The report concludes with an outlook on possible development trajectories in data exchange.​
