Regional Planning Review Process

The IESO is seeking feedback from stakeholders and communities to consider lessons learned and findings from the previous cycle of Regional Planning and other regional planning development initiatives, such as pilots and studies. 

As part of the engagement, the IESO will be reviewing:

  • key areas in the process for enhancement
  • potential barriers to implementing non-wires solutions in regional planning
  • opportunities for potential coordination between bulk system planning, community energy planning, regional planning, and market renewal
  • developing a coordinated, cost-effective, long-term approach to Replacing Transmission Assets at End of Life
  • providing feedback and advice on engagement approaches and materials

There will be two engagement mechanisms:

  • the Regional Planning Review Advisory Group will perform an advisory role to support and assist the IESO in the regional planning process review
  • broader engagement initiative that will be launched in Q4 2018 to inform the broader public and seek feedback

All questions and comments about this engagement can be directed to engagement@ieso.ca.
