Planning Alignment

in Ontario

Six Recommendations for the IESO, Electric Utilities, Natural Gas Utilities, and Local Governments in Ontario

March 2019

In Ontario, the Independent Electricity System Operator (IESO), local distribution companies (LDCs), natural gas utilities, and local governments are increasingly engaging in localized and integrated forms of energy planning.

Within these planning processes lies significant overlap and interdependencies, and thus there are many opportunities where these organizations can better align their efforts to achieve their respective objectives.

This report presents the findings from a combination of semi-structured interviews and facilitated workshops with participants across Ontario and provides six recommendations to foster stronger alignment between energy planning processes and practice.
