Rural Ontario Municipal Association (ROMA) Conference Wrap-Up

January 25, 2024

The IESO participated in the annual Rural Ontario Municipal Association conference earlier this week. This year’s theme was “Closer to Home”, which is very prescient as Ontario embarks on an energy transformation that aims to meet the growing needs of communities while simultaneously driving emissions out of the supply mix.

IESO staff from Planning, Conservation and Resource Adequacy, as well as Regional and Community Engagement, were onsite to answer questions. Some common topics of discussion included:

  • The importance of continued support to help municipalities make informed decisions about energy projects in their areas
  • The need for continued engagement to give municipalities the opportunity to provide feedback
  • The value of broader public education surrounding the energy transformation

The IESO also hosted a learning lunch and offered keynote remarks on the importance of municipal input on electricity sector developments.
