Submission to the Electrification and Energy Transition Panel re: IESO Pathways to Decarbonization, January 2023 The IESO has recently released its Annual Planning Outlook (APO) and Pathways to Decarbonization study. These new IESO documents underscore an urgent lingering risk to Ontario’s system reliability that must be addressed as the IESO continues to under-estimate Ontario’s electricity needs as it has for the last 10 years.

The PWU recommends the development of a new approach for procuring the non-emitting electricity system that Ontario needs for the long term.
