Capacity Exports

The IESO is investigating the potential for allowing Ontario generators to export their capacity to other jurisdictions.

Stakeholders are invited to participate by providing input into the process which will establish the rules and protocols to enable market participants with generating capacity not required for Ontario’s reliability requirements an opportunity to earn revenue by exporting this capacity. Such exports would also have the effect of improving the efficient utilisation of assets on a regional basis.

The IESO encourages all stakeholders in Ontario’s electricity sector, or their representatives, with an interest in this matter to participate in this engagement. This initiative will be of specific interest to stakeholders who are interested in being able to offer their capacity in external capacity markets.

This stakeholder engagement plan may be subject to review and update as the process evolves and meaningful revisions are required to ensure that individuals have the opportunity to contribute their input on this initiative most efficiently.

All comments and enquiries in this stakeholder engagement can be directed to stakeholder.engagement@ieso.ca.
