The IESO's 2016-2020 Strategic Plan describes some of the opportunities and challenges the organization is expected to face over the next five years and charts a clear course forward. The plan considers a range of environmental factors that are expected to affect the organization, including climate change, emerging technologies, operability, consumer engagement and cybersecurity, among others. Four overarching goals have been set for the IESO:
- Deliver superior reliability performance in a changing environment,
- Drive to a more efficient and sustainable marketplace,
- Be recognized as a trusted advisor, informed by engagement, and
- Invest in our people and processes to meet the needs of the sector.
