Spring 2019 Forum registration now open
January 31, 2019
Registration is now open for the spring 2019 IESO Regional Electricity Forums. The IESO East Ontario Forum will be held in Kingston on March 21 and the IESO Northwest Ontario Forum will be held in Thunder Bay on April 10.
The spring forums are part of the 2018/2019 series of forums intended to highlight local initiatives and specifically discuss how local needs and perspectives can factor into broader provincial electricity planning through two main interactive discussions:
- Aligning regional and local energy planning – A panel discussion on the opportunities to align planning at the system, regional and community levels, including an examination of community energy plans and how they impact local and regional planning processes.
Connected communities – Tabletop discussions to encourage diverse perspectives on community-based approaches to meeting energy needs. The feedback will be collected and will inform future engagement efforts for the development of the next long term planning initiative for the region.
The regional electricity forums will bring together a cross-section of community and business audiences representing municipalities, Indigenous communities, local distribution companies, energy services companies and associations to explore and provide input into key electricity matters.
A draft agenda will be shared in the coming weeks. Register now for the East Ontario Regional Electricity Forum here and the Northwest Ontario Regional Electricity Forum here. Additional information on the 2018 forums may be found Regional Electricity Forums web page.
