Market Renewal Roundup for January
January 25, 2018
In response to stakeholder feedback, the IESO is streamlining the stakeholder engagement process for the Single Schedule Market, the Day-Ahead Market and Enhanced Real-Time Unit Commitment initiatives, beginning at the end of January.
This will mean less frequent meetings but covering more content. All three stakeholder engagement groups will meet at the same time (over one or two days), which allows for the alignment of discussions of the elements that impact a number of different projects.
The IESO will bring forward, where appropriate, preliminary decisions earlier in the design development process. This will help focus stakeholder feedback and reduce the number of meetings required to cover the material.
