Updated Plans for Control Action Operating Reserve
April 7, 2011
The IESO and stakeholders will continue to work towards a resolution of issues concerning Control Action Operating Reserve (CAOR) over the next few months. A revised stakeholder plan for Control Action Operating Reserve Study (SE-72) has been posted. Comments can be sent to email@example.com by April 15.
The IESO will publish a position paper on CAOR at the end of April. A stakeholder meeting will be held in late spring to review the paper and to discuss stakeholder comments.
Control Action Operating Reserve refers to the demand relief realized when the IESO uses certain out-of-market control actions as per reliability standards in order to meet the Ontario operating reserve requirement. SE-72 involves reviewing the pricing and structure of the CAOR standing offers to address concerns raised by stakeholders.
