One of the ways the IESO helps meet the province's energy needs is through securing new supply. This means procuring renewable and clean energy from various generation technologies and capacities.

Procurement projects engage a wide range of people from around the province – from large grid-scale generators and distribution-connected producers to communities, small businesses and individuals developing small-scale projects. 

See the status of the IESO's procurement programs in this section, as well as recent reports on procurement initiatives below.
