Get Involved in IESO Engagement Initiatives
Stakeholder and community engagement is integral to the IESO's decision-making process. The goal is to provide individuals and organizations with the opportunity to provide input and feedback about proposed decisions or changes that affect them.
The IESO supports transparency, efficiency and consistency in its engagement efforts. Engagement principles guide the conduct of the IESO and participants to ensure an efficient and effective process.
See Active Engagements for the status of current initiatives.
Strengthening Communities through Energy Efficiency
The Municipal Energy Profile, recently released by the IESO, is a comprehensive report that explores some of the ways Ontario municipalities have been able to achieve significant energy and cost savings. It also identifies further opportunities and provides municipalities with valuable information to inform their energy conservation plans.
