Please join us Thursday, February 22 at 5:30 p.m. for a moderated discussion between Peter Gregg, President & CEO of the Independent Electricity System Operator (IESO), and Serge Imbrogno, Ontario’s Deputy Minister of Energy, on implementation of Ontario’s 2017 Long-Term Energy Plan (LTEP), market transformation and renewal, overall energy sector modernization, and related topics.
As a follow-on from our successful LTEP event with Minister Thibeault in November, this event will explore the LTEP’s practical implications in more detail. The IESO was directed to submit an LTEP implementation plan to the Ministry of Energy by January 31, 2018, detailing steps and initiatives to support Indigenous capacity and leadership, encourage an innovative energy sector, and deliver a flexible and efficient system, such as:
• identifying and supporting innovative demonstration projects, including strategically paired distributed energy resources and smart-grid technologies, virtual net-metering demonstration projects, and using electricity to create hydrogen; and
• reviewing market rules, industry codes, regulations, and planning processes, in coordination with the OEB, to respond to changing policy, market, and system needs and to align with the LTEP’s objectives.
Mr. Gregg and DM Imbrogno’s conversation will encompass LTEP implementation, as well as the challenges and opportunities facing a rapidly changing sector. A networking reception will follow the discussion.
