Non-Emitting Resource Request for Information

This Request for Information (RFI) was issued by the IESO to assist in the gathering of information required to better understand how non-emitting resources can participate in current and future IESO markets in order to contribute to a reliable electricity system in Ontario.


Non-Emitting Resource RFI - Phase 1

The IESO would like to thank all stakeholders who participated in Phase 1 of the NER RFI that was issued on March 21, 2018. The information that was collected by the IESO was very insightful and helpful in identifying how non-emitting resources can participate in the electricity market today and future opportunities that exist down the road.  A summary of the Phase 1 submissions has been posted in the Schedule of Activities.

The IESO will not be continuing with Phase 2 of the NER RFI initiative.  Any future information regarding the status of the NER RFI will be communicated to stakeholders both on the NER-RFI engagement page and through email distribution.  Thank you again for your participation and input.

For any questions, please contact Documents referenced on this page, but not posted, can be obtained by contacting with a link to the web page that lists the document and advise whether it needs to be provided in an accessible format. Please allow a minimum of one business day for a response.
