COVID-19 impacts on Ontario's electricity system
April 30, 2020
In a webinar with stakeholders and market participants last week, the IESO provided insight into the impacts of COVID-19 on electricity demand and system operations. Ontario’s grid continues to operate reliably throughout the pandemic, thanks to close coordination with generators, transmitters, distributors and our North American counterparts.
The materials, recorded presentation, data tables and written responses to questions not addressed verbally at last week’s webinar are now posted. Any outstanding questions will be addressed in the coming days. Registration is now open for the next COVID-19 webinar on May 20.
The IESO has also published an infographic showing how overall electricity patterns, including different sectors, have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Check out the full infographic.
