Navigating Ontario’s Evolving Energy Landscape – A Utility’s Experience
Location: CPH 4333
Abstract: Several coincident yet significant energy transformations are revolutionizing the way electricity is generated, transmitted and distributed in Ontario. Climate change, technological innovation, shift in electricity demand and expanding customer expectations are leading to an evident disruption in what was once a centralized monopoly utility
business. Local distribution companies (LDCs) must navigate these changes to continue to deliver safe and reliable electricity to their customers.
Newmarket – Tay Power Distribution is at the forefront in exploring potential solutions being driven by these changes. Today’s lecture will present some of the innovative projects happening in Newmarket that, upon implementation, will provide direction for the future of Ontario’s electricity sector. These projects cover the areas of: Energy Conservation
(reducing energy consumption through energy efficiency projects), Demand Management (Class A Global Adjustment Industrial Initiative), Large Scale Distribution Connected Battery Storage Pilot and Bus Transit Electrification (low‐carbon fuel source).
