HOEP Review (SE-105)

​In response to the recommendations outlined in the Electricity Market Forum's Report released December 2011, the IESO has undertaken a review of how its current programs, products, and mechanisms impact the structure of the Hourly Ontario Energy Price (HOEP) with a goal to identify whether the HOEP includes components that unnecessarily dampen real-time price signals.

The intent of this Stakeholder Engagement Plan is to ensure that the approach and analysis in this review are comprehensive and meets the objectives of the recommendation included in the Forum's report.

This initiative is likely to be of interest to all wholesale market participants and stakeholder groups; generators and consumers in particular will have an interest in participating given the central role of the HOEP in the operations and settlement of the wholesale electricity market.
