Grid Innovation Fund Call Intake Window Now Open

May 30, 2024

The intake window for the 2024 Grid Innovation Fund Call is now open with $9.5 million in funding for electric vehicle and electric space and water heating projects. 

Under the electric vehicle stream, the IESO is looking for proposals that explore grid applications for vehicle-to-grid and charging management technologies.

Under the electric space and water heating stream, proponents are invited to submit projects that demonstrate how the effective energy management of heating, cooling and thermal storage can support grid reliability.

The Ontario Energy Board will serve as a regulatory partner, where proponents can concurrently seek guidance from its Innovation Sandbox.

The application window is open until July 22, 2024 with successful projects scheduled to be announced in the fall. More information about this year’s call and full application guidelines and documents can be found on the IESO’s website.
