Smart Metering Entity: Third Party Access Implementation Plan

In its role as the Smart Metering Entity (SME) for Ontario, the IESO is seeking input to inform an implementation plan that provides interested third parties access to de-identified meter data available in the province’s Meter Data Management/Repository (MDM/R).

This engagement initiative supports the Ontario Energy Board Orders to the IESO’s SME to enable third party access to Ontario’s smart meter data in a manner compliant with privacy requirements and that ensures the fair an ethical use of such data.

All interested parties are invited to participate in this engagement including, but not limited to, various levels of government, communities, municipalities, academia and research organizations, energy service providers as well as consumer groups and associations.
