The GPMC – Entity in charge of managing the switching process in the gas retail market was created having in mind the liberalization of the gas retail market, and to put in place transparent, simple and robust rules that ensure the effectiveness and confidence of market agents, network operators and consumers in switching procedures.
Currently, the management activities of the natural gas customer-switching process are committed to REN Gasodutos, SA that was appointed by ERSE to perform the GPMC functions.
In turn, REN Gasodutos, S.A., hired OMIP to: (i) ensure the development and operation of an IT Platform supporting the GPMC activity and (ii) carry out the current GPMC management activities.
The e_Switch is the IT Platform developed by OMIP that supports in a simple, secure and flexible way the management of the processes referred to above. It is accessed by the several market agents to initiate, monitor and complete the customer-switching requests, having GPMC as the entity that supervises and manages the information flows exchanged along each process.
