IESO Summit-Lite - Ontario's Evolving Electricity System - A consumer Perspective - November 24. 2021

November 24, 2021 from
9:00 a.m. - 12 p.m.

The upcoming summit will focus on current trends, drivers and opportunities for various consumer segments among the power sector.  Technological change, government policies and consumer preferences are driving changes in Ontario’s energy supply mix. The 2021 Annual Planning Outlook which will be released later this year, includes a high growth scenario with a focus on increased demand due to economic policies and decarbonization. The IESO Summit-Lite will allow participants the opportunity to hear directly from consumers at the forefront of driving change in the power sector and how they are achieving specific energy goals, overcoming barriers and what opportunities exist for the future.

Please register in advance by completing the registration form. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.
