Update on Technical Panel determinations

May 24, 2018

The Technical Panel met on May 22 and unanimously recommended that the IESO Board of Directors consider the proposed rule amendment on Regulated Settlement (MR-00434) when it meets on June 13, and requested that proposed market rule amendments on Demand Response (MR-00433) be posted for stakeholder comment.

MR-00434: Regulated Settlement – Deletion of Rural and Remote Settlement and Debt Retirement Charge

This proposal identifies the need for market rule amendments to ensure consistency with respect to regulated settlement through the deletion of market rule references to rural and remote settlement and the debt retirement charge.  The recommended effective date of this amendment is July 6, 2018.

MR-00433: Demand Response

R00 – Notification and Activation of Hourly Demand Response

R01 – Hourly Demand Response to the EOSCA List

These proposed amendments will increase the utilization of Hourly Demand Response (HDR) resources by modifying the requirements for standby and activation notices, reducing the minimum dispatch duration, and explicitly identifying activation of HDR resources as a control action on the Emergency Operating State Control Actions list.

These proposals are based on input from the Demand Response Working Group (DRWG).  Further information on the DRWG can be found on the DRWG webpage.

Stakeholders are asked to provide comments on the above proposals (MR-00433-R00 & R01) by June 7, 2018.  Comments can be sent to
