Demand Response Working Group update

January 21, 2016

The IESO is re-launching the Demand Response Working Group (DRWG) and is seeking feedback on a draft Terms of Reference and interest in participation. The IESO established the DRWG in 2014 to assist in the evolution of DR from a contracted resource into the energy market.

With the completion of the first Demand Response Auction, the DRWG will become an open membership forum with an enduring advisory role to assist in the evolution of DR in the IESO-administered markets.

A draft revised Terms of Reference has been posted on the working group webpage. Those interested in participating as a DRWG member are asked to submit an email to along with any feedback on the Terms of Reference by February 5. The IESO will communicate next steps after reviewing this feedback.
