Industrial Accelerator Program

The Industrial Accelerator Program (IAP) is designed to assist eligible transmission-connected companies with identifying and implementing energy efficiency projects. The program provides financial incentives to encourage investment in innovative process changes and equipment retrofits to reduce electricity consumption on the provincial system and to help companies become more competitive by positively impacting their bottom line. There are four initiatives offered through IAP:

  1. Retrofit
  2. Process & Systems Upgrades
  3. High Performance New Construction
  4. Energy Managers

For more information on the IAP, please contact an IESO Business Advisor at
