Market document changes available for review in Baseline 38.0 including e-Tag Submission Deadline change
July 13, 2017
The Interchange Enhancements project will implement the e-Tag Submission Deadline change from T-30 to T-32 with a target implementation date of September 13, 2017, for Baseline 38.0. The proposal to advance the e-Tag Submission Deadline by 2 minutes was determined through an IESO stakeholder engagement which commenced in late 2016. The Interchange Enhancements engagement page contains more information on the work completed to date.
To accommodate the change, Market Manual 4: Market Operations, Part 4.2 Submission of Dispatch Data in the Real Time Energy and Operating Reserve Markets has been updated to reflect the deadline change. Comments on this manual may be sent to email@example.com by August 4. Market Manual 4: Market Operations, Part 4.3 Real Time Scheduling of the Physical Markets will also be updated to reflect the deadline change and will be posted in early August for market participant review.
The Interchange Enhancements project will follow a staggered implementation approach for the other proposed changes, i.e. Introduction of a new e-Tag ID Mandatory Window and Automatic alignment of IESO schedules and e-Tags. These changes are scheduled to take effect in March 2018. The stakeholder presentation from April 2017 provides more detail on the implementation plan and this specific change. The IESO would like to thank all the stakeholders who participated in this engagement process and welcomes any other questions or comments to be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
In addition, a number of IESO Market Manuals and forms are available for review in this baseline on the Pending Changes – Document webpage. The IESO expects other IESO Market Manuals changes will be made available in the coming weeks for review in Baseline 38.0. Comments on these documents may be sent to email@example.com by August 4. The current Baseline Plan is available here.
