Conservation and Demand Management Information Solution

In collaboration with Local Distribution Companies (LDCs), the IESO is implementing a Conservation & Demand Management Information Solution (CDM-IS), a system capable of providing the functionality necessary for the management and administration of Conservation & Demand Management programs. The CDM-IS will replace the functions of the existing iCon 2011 solution, as well as some manual and partially automated processes.  The new CDM-IS will support the roles and responsibilities of the IESO and LDCs within the Ontario Conservation First Framework.

This engagement will inform stakeholders about the solution and provide opportunities for hands-on solution trials. The schedule of activities listed below outlines when and how participant feedback will be sought.

The IESO encourages all stakeholders in the Conservation First Framework, or their representatives with an interest in this initiative to participate in this engagement. This initiative will be of particular interest to:

  • LDCs
  • Natural Gas Utilities
  • Service Providers
  • Channel Allies (e.g. contractors, product manufacturers)
  • End-Use Consumers (distribution and transmission-connected)
