Opportunities and Challenges Arising from the 2013 Ontario Long Term Energy Plan

Opportunities and Challenges Arising from the 2013 Ontario Long Term Energy Plan
Wednesday, February 5, 2014:


1:00 - 2:30 pm Eastern US Time

On December 2, 2013, the Ontario government released its new Long Term Energy Plan (the “New LTEP”) that sets out the Province’s strategy for encouraging conservation and providing clean, reliable and affordable energy. The New LTEP focuses on:

  • conservation and expanding Demand Response programs to reduce peak demand, as a means for offsetting growth in electricity demand over the next 20 years
  • proceeding with nuclear refurbishment at both Darlington and Bruce Generating Stations, beginning in 2016
  • deferring the new nuclear project at Darlington
  • extending the phasing-in of wind, solar and bioenergy for three more years than estimated in the 2010 Long Term Energy Plan, with 10,700 megawatts online by 2021
  • developing a new competitive procurement process with the Ontario Power Authority for future renewable projects larger than 500 kilowatts (including contract for 600 megawatts of wind, 280 megawatts of solar, 100 megawatts of bioenergy and 95 megawatts of hydro in 2014 and 2015)
  • incorporating an additional 300 megawatts of hydro (by 2025) to the supply mix, which will bring hydro generation from 9,000 megawatts to 9,300 megawatts
  • encouraging First Nation and Métis participation in transmission and renewable energy projects
  • developing the East-West Tie transmission line, solutions to meet increased electricity demand from mining in the Red Lake / Pickle Lake area and, in conjunction with Infrastructure Ontario, a new Northwest Bulk Transmission Line located west of Thunder Bay
  • promoting the development of storage technologies in the procurement process, starting with 50 megawatts and then assessing additional engagement on an ongoing basis
  • providing annual reporting, by ways of an annual Ontario Energy Report, to update Ontarians on changing supply and demand conditions and to outline the LTEP progress

Through web-based panel discussion, moderated by Torys LLP, we will provide a forum to discuss: (a) the opportunities for market participants in the New LTEP, including the new procurement process; and (b) the challenges that market participants will face in pursuing these opportunities.

How It Works

The 90 minute session is interactive and you will be able to submit questions -live- to our esteemed speakers - via computer during the session. However, please note that since this is a discussion and not a formal presentation the only visual elements will be the information contained herein.
You will receive confirmation of your registration via email.
A separate email sent a (business) day before the webinar will include a toll free dial-in phone number and access code to dial into the seminar. It will also include the Internet address and login instructions to access the webinar.
At the time of the interactive session, you will call into the toll-free number via phone or speakerphone and log in to the special website. You will follow the presentation on the web; the Instructors will manage the timing and page changes of the presentation directly.
You will have the opportunity to ask questions at specified times during the presentation. All participants will be able to hear both the questions and answers.

Single Connection: $99.00
Additional Connection at the same Organization: $50.00

A site connection allows a single connection to the web conference. That connection is open to any number of users in a collaborative setting. Because there are no travel expenses and only a single registration fee is required, each additional participant lowers the cost per participant significantly.

By purchasing a site connection, you can invite as many people as you would like to view and participate in the session from a single location. Set up the session in a conference room and project the presentation and chat on a large screen. You also have rights to distribute copies of the presentation materials to everyone involved. Please note that audio is received via the phone line and must be broadcast to your group.

If for any reason a relevant stakeholder cannot co-locate for the session, we encourage you to include that person by purchasing an additional connection at the reduced fee of $50 per session. This will ensure that every member of a team receives the same relevant, timely information in the most efficient way. If you have any technical or purchasing questions, please contact us at (818) 888-4444.

Should you be unable to attend, a refund, less a $50 administrative charge, will be made for cancellations received via letter or fax at least 3 working days before the event. We regret cancellations will not be accepted after that date. However, we will be pleased to transfer your registration to another member of your company or credit the registration fee to another Infocast conference if you register within 6 months from the date of this conference. In the event the conference is canceled, Infocast’s liability is limited to the refund of the conference registration fee only.
