Enabling Hybrid Facilities to Participate in IESO-Administered Markets

July 7, 2022

Hybrid facilities, which consist of generation and storage technologies, have the potential to play an important role in helping meet Ontario’s future electricity needs. Expiring wind and solar contracts in Ontario along with declining technology costs for battery storage is expected to drive hybrid facility development over the next decade.

In order to facilitate this growth, the IESO has recently released the Enabling Foundational Hybrid Facility Models in the IESO-Administered Markets report which identifies foundational hybrid facility models that will be allowed to participate in the IESO administered markets in the near future.

Hybrid facilities for these markets will support meeting Ontario’s reliability and operability needs, as well as increasing market competition. Stakeholders are invited to provide feedback to help the IESO ensure the design document reflects the decisions that were identified during the stakeholder engagement. Please download the feedback form and submit it to by July 22, 2022.

Learn more about the Hybrid Integration Project, as well as feedback received following the April 22 stakeholder engagement meeting.
