Renewable Integration (SE-91)

Ontario’s Long Term Energy Plan reinforces the investment focus on renewable generation under the Green Energy and Green Economy Act (GEA) and the Ontario Power Authority’s Feed-In-Tariff (FIT) program. The Plan acknowledges the significant commitments made to date - 5,800 MW of variable generation projects, primarily wind, are underway and are expected to be in commercial operation by the end of 2012, with 10,700 MW targeted for 2018.

The IESO needs to be in a position to register and incorporate this variable generation into power system operations and IESO-administered markets. This stakeholder initiative will discuss design principles for forecasting, dispatch, visibility and future markets for wind and solar generation, as appropriate. This initiative builds on the forecasting work previously done in Renewable and Embedded Generation (SE-57).

Renewable Integration is of interest to many stakeholders.  Local distribution companies, generators of all types (particularly wind and solar generators), and energy agencies, will have the most interest in this initiative, and its related policies, standards, and market rule changes.

This stakeholder engagement plan has been developed to define the opportunity for stakeholder involvement in the integration of renewable generation.
