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 power system is operating reliably through the COVID-19 pandemic. Please check this site for updates.
Building Indigenous Energy Capacity
The IESO is providing $7.1 million in funding to 61 Indigenous communities and organizations across Ontario to support energy planning, renewable generation, energy-efficiency measures, as well as skills development and training.
Natural Gas Phase-Out Study
The IESO undertook a study to examine the possibility of phasing-out natural gas generation by 2030. The study looks at what would be required to do so, the associated costs and what impact it would have on the future of Ontario’s electricity system.
