Demand Response Working Group

The IESO is seeking the feedback and participation of stakeholders for a renewed Demand Response Working Group (DRWG).  The IESO established the DRWG in 2014 to assist in the evolution of DR from a contracted resource into the energy market, as well as to inform the development of pilots and the DR Auction Stakeholder Engagement. 

With the completion of the first Demand Response Auction, the IESO is looking to refocus the DRWG to an open membership forum with an enduring advisory role.  The DRWG will assist the IESO in the evolution of DR in the IESO-administered markets.

A draft revised Terms of Reference has been posted below, which outlines the role the IESO envisions for the DRWG.  Stakeholders interested in participating as a DRWG member are asked to submit an email to stakeholder.engagement@ieso.ca along with any feedback on the Terms of Reference by Friday February 5 2016.  The IESO will communicate next steps after reviewing this feedback.

Draft Revised Terms of Reference
