Foundation Project- Enhancing the Value of Electricity Consumption Data - New Stakeholder Engagement
March 12, 2015
The IESO is investigating how to enhance the value of the data set within Ontario's Meter Data Management and Repository (MDM/R). The IESO will work with stakeholders to consider and develop:
- Defining the information required to be associated with electricity consumption information (such as geo-location) to enable analysis of this information; and
- The development of rules and protocols for data access by Third Parties
Data enhancement and access will comprise the foundations which will allow for the utilization of consumption data as a valuable input into conservation and demand management, provincial or regional system planning, academic research and innovation related to electricity in the residential and small business sectors.
The IESO is proposing to accomplish this work through a broad stakeholder initiative that contains open meetings designed to provide meaningful and timely feedback into the initiative as well as a focused Working Group.
A draft Stakeholder Engagement Plan and Working Group Terms of Reference has been posted on the Foundation Project stakeholder engagement webpage. Stakeholders are invited to provide feedback on the Plan by March 18, to email@example.com.
