Resource Adequacy engagement to launch in January

November 28, 2019

As part of its commitment to enabling competition to acquire capacity and meet Ontario’s needs, the IESO is launching a Resource Adequacy engagement.

Based on the understanding that there is no single solution for all resources, and that a capacity auction is only one tool in a suite of possible approaches to procuring capacity, the IESO will focus on achieving a more balanced approach to risk by engaging stakeholders in a discussion of how best to allocate these risks and develop solutions to meet the province’s long- term adequacy needs.

More information about the engagement is available on the IESO website. To register for the first meeting on January 27, 2020, email
