Update on Technical Panel determinations
August 15, 2019
At its August 13 meeting, the Technical Panel recommended, for IESO Board approval, proposed market rule amendments to enable non-committed dispatchable generators to participate in the December 2019 capacity auction alongside dispatchable loads and hourly demand response resources. These changes represent an evolution of the demand response auction into a more competitive capacity acquisition mechanism.
These proposals have been informed by stakeholders and the IESO Board will discuss the proposed market rule amendments at its August 28 meeting.
The recommended amendments are posted on the Technical Panel webpage.
