Conservation E-BLASTs

Mid-term Review update

January 25, 2017

Further to the November 2, 2016 E-Blast, the IESO has launched an engagement initiative to seek input from interested parties on the IESO's Conservation Framework: Mid-Term Review. The Mid-Term Review will inform potential approaches to achieving conservation objectives to 2020 and beyond. The engagement initiative will seek input from LDCs, customers, channel partners and other interested parties on the review of the Conservation First Framework and the Industrial Accelerator Program with a focus on energy savings targets, budgets, progress, lessons learned and how they align with Ontario's climate change action plan. The first meeting of the broader engagement initiative is expected in early Q2 2017. 

The engagement initiative will be supported by a Mid-Term Review Advisory Group, made up of a variety of representatives, to tackle more detailed discussions. Following a public call for applications, the IESO has appointed the members of the Advisory Group below based on the 30 applications received as follows:


  • Myfanwy Parry, Housing Services Corp.
  • Walter Nuvoloni, LaFarge
  • Mark Schembri, Loblaw
  • Ed Rubinstein, University Health Network
  • Amha Abraha, CBRE Limited


  • Chris Barker, Customer First Inc.
  • Margaret Rodd, Entegrus Powerlines Inc.
  • George Katsuras, Hydro One
  • Raegan Bond, PowerStream Inc.
  • Michael Marchant, Toronto Hydro-Electric System

Electricity Service Providers/Consultants:

  • Guru Kalyanraman, CLEAResult Canada Inc.
  • Iuliana Calin, Nest Labs


  • Katherine Sparkes, Chair

The first meeting of the Advisory Group is being targeted for later in February 2017 where members will have an opportunity to provide input to the scope of this initiative.

The IESO appreciates the stakeholder interest demonstrated in this initiative. For more information, and to follow the discussions and meeting materials, visit the Conservation Framework: Mid-Term Review engagement webpage.
