Implementation Engagement - Reference Levels

The Energy work stream of the Market Renewal Program (MRP) will improve the way electricity is priced and scheduled in order to meet Ontario’s energy needs reliably, transparently and efficiently.

With the support and involvement of an active stakeholder community, the IESO will shift from the detailed design phase of the Market Renewal Energy stream to the next phase of work for Market Renewal known as Implementation. In part this phase of work includes the review of rules and manuals required to facilitate Market Renewal Energy go-live in March 2023. The process for stakeholder involvement and feedback throughout the Implementation phase of work will be detailed below.
