Recorded Webinar: Market Renewal Contracts

On October 31, 2017, the IESO hosted an information webinar on the Market Renewal Program aimed at electricity supply contract holders, who are also market participants.

During this webinar, the IESO provided an overview of the Market Renewal Program and discussed at a high-level the potential implications to existing contracts. The IESO also provided a framework and timing for future discussions related to contracts.

Brochure: Creating the Electricity Marketplace of Tomorrow

Creating the Electricity Marketplace of Tomorrow highlights the efforts of the IESO and stakeholders to update the current electricity market. These changes will ensure that Ontarians have a stable and reliable supply of electricity at the lowest cost while those working in the sector can rely on a stable, robust market that is prepared for whatever the future might hold.

Education Workshops

The IESO hosted a number of education workshops in early 2107 to help stakeholders, market participants and the broader sector to better understand the design elements of the Market Renewal Program.  Recorded presentations for each of these sessions are available below.
