Conservation Framework Mid-Term Review

The IESO is seeking input to inform the mid-term review of the conservation framework which includes the 2015 to 2020 Conservation First Framework and Industrial Accelerator Program. 

The review will focus on energy savings targets, budgets, progress, lessons learned (on cost recovery, performance incentive mechanisms and conservation and demand management (CDM) contribution to regional planning), and alignment with Ontario’s Climate Change Action Plan.

This engagement initiative is open to all interested parties and is supported by a third party consultant as well as a Mid-Term Review Advisory Group.

All comments and enquiries in this engagement can be directed to engagement@ieso.ca.
