Event description


The IESO Stakeholder Summit is less than a week away!

This full-day Summit will bring together industry experts from across North America to get perspectives on how other jurisdictions are approaching their own shifting energy landscapes, as well as to explore the future direction of Ontario’s electricity system.

Here is the draft agenda for the event: here

Program Highlights:

Examining trends to a cleaner grid: decarbonisation on electricity markets and systems and how to learn from impacts and realize potential opportunities

  • Perspectives on energy demand, capital, technology and policy
  • Panel: Building Flexibility into the Electricity System
    A panel of experts discuss the tools and rules that should be considered as electricity systems integrate and manage the influx of emissions-free power
  • Panel: The Influence of Decarbonisation on Tomorrow’s Electricity Market
    This panel will discuss experiences in other jurisdictions with electricity markets that are seeing the effects of growing renewable resource penetration, and how markets are reacting to these shifts

Examining the expanded grid: learning how distributed energy networks and empowered consumers change the make-up of traditional electricity markets and systems

  • How ISOs and RTOs can create a more nimble, robust bulk electricity system
  • Reforming the Energy Vision
  • Advancing Customer Driven Solutions
  • Panel: Empowering consumers through conservation and demand management
    This segment will describe how consumer engagement in conservation and demand management is happening in other jurisdictions. As consumers continue to see high electricity prices, and expanded opportunities for self-generation, what offerings will it take for customers to meaningfully engage with the grid?
