Reminder: Conservation Framework: Mid-Term Review submissions due November 23

November 17, 2016

The IESO has launched an engagement initiative to seek input on a Mid-term Review of the 2015 to 2020 Conservation First Framework (CFF) and Industrial Accelerator Program that will inform potential approaches to achieving conservation objectives through to 2020 and beyond.

Through this initiative, stakeholders and communities will have an opportunity to provide input on the review framework that will focus on energy savings targets, budgets, progress, lessons learned (on cost recovery, performance incentive mechanisms and CDM contribution to regional planning), and alignment with Ontario's Climate Change Action Plan. The IESO will seek a third party consultant through a competitive procurement process, to support the IESO with completion of the mid-term review.

A Mid-Term Review Advisory Group will be formed to supplement broader engagement efforts, by tackling more detailed discussions, and will consist of a limited number of representatives within the following categories:

  • five consumers (representing a mix of sectors, and distribution/transmission connected customers);
  • five LDCs (selection will focus on different size utilities and different regions and progress towards CFF targets);
  • two consultants, service providers/delivery agents and/or product manufacturers that are engaged in CDM; and,
  • IESO (Chair plus staff support).

The Advisory Group may also include registered observers representing natural gas utilities, industry/customer associations, Environmental Commissioner’s Office, Ontario Energy Board and/or Ministry of Energy.

Interested parties are invited to submit the following comments and/or applications by email to by November 23:

  • Feedback on draft Conservation Framework: Mid-Term Review engagement plan
  • Feedback on draft Mid-Term Review Advisory Group terms of reference
  • Request to be considered as a member of the Mid-Term Review Advisory Group along with a biography and an outline of how qualifications can contribute to the Advisory Group objectives as outlined in the proposed Terms of Reference
  • Request to be considered as a registered observer for Advisory Group meetings
