Alberta and Ontario are in the midst of a fundamental redesign of their electricity markets. The redesign of these markets is happening at a time when the electricity system is experiencing considerable transformation, driven by increased investment in renewable energy and demand response resources, a shift towards more distributed energy resources, innovation in electric storage technology and added intelligence throughout the electric power system. This workshop will seek the insights of academics and practitioners on how electricity markets and pricing mechanisms can be designed for the future electricity system, to promote a transparent, efficient, and openly competitive market place.
The conference is organized by the Ivey Energy Policy and Management Centre, Ivey Business School, Western University. The Centre gratefully acknowledges financial support from Ontario’s Independent Electricity System Operator and The Alberta Electric System Operator.
