Market Renewal Program - Readiness Checklist and API Technical Specifications Now Available
April 6, 2023
Market Participants can now download the MRP Readiness Checklist to assist in understanding the scope and timing of what they will need to do, what they will be trained on, and the actions they will need to take in order to be prepared for Market Renewal go-live in May 2025. This checklist is a customizable to-do list, focused on common tasks relevant to each organization, based on its participation type.
As part of the Market Renewal Program, changes are being made to the way Market Participants will interact with the Market Information Management (MIM) and the Dispatch Services systems. These applications are currently used by dispatchable Market Participants to submit bids and offers for the physical market and to receive dispatch instructions from the IESO. The IESO has recently provided an updated set of API technical specifications, schema and sample files, which Market Participants can use to start assessing how they will reprogram their APIs, ahead of Market Trials in 2024.Please visit the Market Renewal Program Readiness page to access resources to support Market Participant readiness.
