Market Renewal - Enabling System Flexibility

The IESO has identified an emerging need for the ability to schedule resources capable of responding within a short time frame in order to manage forecast uncertainty in the real-time energy market. The IESO will engage with stakeholders to explore a range of potential solutions for enhanced flexibility in the electricity system.

This engagement has been incorporated as part of the Operability Stream of the IESO Market Renewal Program.

The IESO encourages all stakeholders in Ontario's electricity sector, or their representatives, with an interest in this initiative to participate in this engagement.

All comments and enquiries in this stakeholder engagement can be directed to engagement@ieso.ca.
