Due to new regulations energy providers are required to obtain IT security certificates. Especially small and medium-sized energy providers struggle to fulfill these new requirements. Since most of them are in the same situation, we aim to support their collaboration with a platform. We elicited criteria from energy providers how such a platform should be designed to support them. The main contribution is a set of requirements for the collaboration platform along with the implications for its construction. The focus of this work is not on technical innovation but on how existing technologies and best practices can be adopted for the needs of small and medium-sized energy providers.
