New Program Delivery Executive Appointed to lead the Market Renewal Program
January 28, 2021
The IESO is pleased to announce Jessica Savage will be leading the Market Renewal Program (MRP) as the newly appointed Program Delivery Executive. She comes to this position with over 15 years at the IESO in progressively senior roles in Operations, Market Rules and Corporate and Regulatory Affairs.
As one of the IESO’s key corporate priority initiatives, MRP is focused on improving how we supply, schedule and price electricity to meet Ontario’s future needs – once implemented, the program is expected to result in $800 million in net benefits in the first 10 years alone. Jessica joins MRP at an important time with the program transitioning from the detailed design into the implementation phase.
The focus of the program going forward will be on translating the designs into rules, manuals, processes and tools, and continued engagement with stakeholders, to ready the IESO and the sector for Ontario’s renewed wholesale electricity markets.
