IESO launches new stakeholder engagement framework
April 16, 2020
To help maintain a reliable system, the IESO relies on the support and input of the stakeholders from across the electricity sector. Over the years, engagement needs have increased and diversified and we recognize the need for a strong foundation to support stakeholders as they aid in the IESO’s decision-making process. Based on stakeholder feedback, the IESO has created a new streamlined stakeholder framework to increase the efficiency of engagements and provide increased clarity to stakeholders.
To make it easier for stakeholders to prepare for and participate in engagements, the new engagement framework introduces a set of days each month that are dedicated to stakeholder engagement activities. To better highlight linkages between engagements, related sessions will be held on the same day.
The first engagement days under the new framework are scheduled to start on May 20, 2020. The meetings will be offered online as webinars, consistent with the IESO’s pandemic response measures.
Additional information on the IESO’s new stakeholder engagement framework will be available on the website shortly, with the full meeting agenda to follow in the coming weeks.
