Demand Response Auction

​The IESO invites stakeholders to provide input into the design for a capacity auction that will help meet the future resource needs of Ontario's electricity system and provide flexibility for new and existing technologies to compete in the marketplace.
Through stakeholder input, the objective of this stakeholder engagement initiative is to identify and develop the elements that would make up the design of a capacity auction for Ontario. This, along with the engagement method and timelines, are outlined in the Capacity Auction Stakeholder Engagement Plan posted below.

It is expected that all stakeholders with an interest in the future development of Ontario's electricity market will have an interest in this initiative.

The Stakeholder Engagement Plan may be subject to review and update as the process evolves to ensure that individuals have the opportunity to access and contribute their input on this initiative most efficiently. All comments and enquiries can be directed to stakeholder.engagement@ieso.ca.
