The Independent Electricity System Operator (IESO) works at the heart of Ontario's power system. The IESO delivers key services across the electricity sector including: managing the power system in real-time, planning for the province's future energy needs, enabling conservation and designing a more efficient electricity marketplace to support sector evolution.
Regional Electricity Forums—We want to hear from you
Join others from your community to explore and provide input into the future direction of the electricity sector. These full-day forums will highlight local initiatives and discuss how local needs and perspectives can factor into broader provincial electricity planning.
The East Ontario Regional Electricity Forum will be held in Kingston on March 21.
The Northwest Ontario Regional Electricity Forum will be held in Thunder Bay on April 10.
Investing in Grid Innovation
The IESO’s Grid Innovation Fund advances innovative opportunities to achieve electricity bill savings for Ontario ratepayers by funding projects that either enable customers to better manage their energy consumption or that reduce the costs associated with maintaining the reliable operation of the province's grid.
Applications for projects designed to pilot, and in some cases develop, innovative technologies, practices, services, programs and research are being accepted from March 1 to March 31, 2019.
