Renewable Integration (SE-91) - Visibility Technical Working Group

The Visibility Technical Working Group (VTWG) is a working group established by the IESO through SE-91 Renewable Integration to discuss the design details associated with the Design Principles for Renewable Generation.

The group will focus on:

  • Defining data required from wind and solar generators to implement a centralized forecasting service, and;
  • Defining the design details required to ensure that the IESO can monitor production of embedded solar and wind resources.
