The Ontario IESO foresees a shortfall in generating capacity of 1400 MW opening up in less than 5 years. “Long on energy, short on capacity” is how some are describing it.

- While it rarely seems to have any easy road, Combined Heat and Power (CHP) continues to find favour amongst a wide variety of customers across Canada.
- The circumstances call for carefully built market designs that will harness the power of markets while reflecting the policy requirements of government. Brattle has some suggestions.
- IESO launches consultation on governance and decision-making
- Sarnia to get “biggest” BTM storage in North America
- Carleton U installing 4.6MW cogen
- Given current cost declines for solar-plus-storage, some entrepreneurs are projecting that up to 30% of customers may be self-generating by 2030.
- 2.35 MW of storage for office complex
- A recent study finds that distributed solar generation is significantly reducing electricity costs for customers in New England, including those who don’t own any generation at all.
- The latest example of category-smashing ingenuity: It's not just a major storage facility composed of 6000 distributed batteries. It could be a source of smart grid transactions more agile and distributed than anything that's come before.
Judging from recent business results, it would be a mistake to underestimate the growth potential of new onsite power and co-generation in Canada.
The IESO announced in August that it would be launching a new engagement initiative to explore and potentially propose enhancements to its governance and decision-making framework.
Global grid capacity can be expected to triple by 2050, thanks to continued growth in renewables and a rapid electrification of energy demand, in particular through a progressive conversion of the world’s transportation sector to electric vehicles.
Convergent Energy + Power and IHI, Inc. announced the launch of what they say is North America’s biggest behind-the-meter energy storage system, located in Sarnia, Ontario.
A discussion paper released July 30 by Brattle economists addresses how regional wholesale power markets can help meet state and local clean-energy policies more cost effectively.
A 4.6 megawatt cogeneration unit is slated for installation at Carleton University by spring of 2019.
