Regional Planning Review Advisory Group

The Regional Planning Review Advisory Group will perform an advisory role to support and assist the IESO in the regional planning process review in 2018-19 as part of the LTEP Implementation Plan. The IESO will ask the group to carry out the following activities:

  • Advise on the key regional planning process elements of focus for enhancement (e.g., what has worked well? What are some potential areas for improvement?)
  • Advise on potential barriers to implementing non-wires solutions in regional planning
  • Advise on opportunities for potential coordination between bulk system planning, community energy planning, regional planning, and market renewal
  • Advise on the development of a coordinated, cost-effective, long-term approach to Replacing Transmission Assets at End of Life
  • Provide feedback and advice on engagement approaches and materials, where appropriate.

All comments, enquiries and requests for membership in this group can be directed to engagement@ieso.ca.
