On Wednesday January 8, 2014, Bruce Campbell, President & CEO of the IESO (Independent Electricity Systems Operator) delivered what some viewed as a forward-thinking speech at an Ontario Energy Industry Networking Luncheon.
“As we more forward in 2014, be ready for us (IESO) to be active in our new role for demand response, in storage, and in market development,” said Campbell.
Key topics covered by Bruce Campbell included:
- Continuing to be in a strong reliability position, while recognizing the need for more flexibility moving forward
- The LTEP providing the planning framework for the sector and introducing a number of new mechanisms to integrate into operations
- Considering how the many disparate threads of emerging and maturing technologies may combine to dramatically reshape the sector
