Powering Tomorrow.

The Independent Electricity System Operator (IESO) works at the heart of Ontario's power system. The IESO delivers key services across the electricity sector including: managing the power system in real-time, planning for the province's future energy needs, enabling conservation and designing a more efficient electricity marketplace to support sector evolution.

Ontario's Electricity System Transformation

In the coming years, we will see an unprecedented transformation of the Ontario power grid. Our reliance on electricity will increase, driven by economic growth, decarbonization and consumer preferences. As the province’s system planner, the IESO is taking action to prepare for our near- and long-term energy needs through our Pathways to Decarbonization report, Annual Planning Outlook and Conservation and Demand Management Framework Mid-Term Review.

CDM Mid-Term Review

Energy efficiency delivered through conservation and demand management programs (CDM) is a key resource for maintaining a reliable, affordable and sustainable electricity system in Ontario. As demand grows, the value of CDM increases as a low-cost, non-emitting resource that can respond to changing system needs, and support broader economic development and decarbonization objectives.
