IESO Board of Directors approves market rule amendments
August 29, 2019
The IESO Board of Directors decided in favour of the adoption of the following market rule amendment proposals at its August 28 meeting:
- Transitional capacity auction (MR-00439-R00-R05): The TCA represents an evolution of the demand response auction into a more competitive capacity acquisition mechanism.
- Selection of a mediator or arbitrator other than an IESO Dispute Resolution Panel member (MR-00438-R00): Provides flexibility to the parties to a market rules dispute to select mediators or arbitrators that are not members of the Dispute Resolution Panel.
The amendments and the Board’s reasons for adopting these amendments will be published shortly. A notice will be issued when these documents are published online. The effective date for these market rule amendment proposals is October 15.
