IESO Resource Adequacy October Engagement

The IESO’s approach to securing adequate resources for Ontario’s electricity system includes a Long-term RFP/RFQ process. The PWU identified that the proposed design will not result is a competitive procurement that acquires the resources required. The PWU recommend that the IESO allow for more development time and longer contact life, increase the target capacity of 1,000 MW to procure resources needed by 2035, expand the resource eligibility to include existing resources, and distinguish between supply required for peak/reserve capacity, intermediate, and baseload needs.
