Transition to NEW ISO Rules Framework
The AESO has developed new framework to serve as the repository for new and transitioned ISO Rules. This framework was developed in collaboration with stakeholders throughout 2008 and 2009 with the intent of improving the organization of and navigation to ISO Rules.
During the transition of the AESO’s documents both the current ISO Rules framework and the new ISO Rules framework will be in effect. The current framework will serve as the repository for ISO Rules that have not been transitioned to the new form. The new framework will serve as the repository for new ISO Rules and ISO Rules that have been transitioned. The ISO Rules in both frameworks will represent the collective set of ISO Rules.
To help keep stakeholders informed on status of the transition, the AESO will indicate ISO rules that have been transitioned, and provide a link to the new framework.
The tables below represent how the current and new ISO rules structure will work in together throughout the transition.
Current ISO Rules Framework
Two new columns will be added to the ISO Rules currently posted on the AESO website; the table below illustrates the concept by listing a subset of the ISO Rules.
Please note the table below does not contain actual ISO Rules and is for illustration purposes only.
Two columns will be added to the current ISO Rules framework as indicated in the table below. One column will indicated whether or not a rule has been transitioned and if so the other column will provide a link to the location in the new framework. Please note that the table below is only an excerpt from the ISO Rules and is only intended for illustration purposes, the table does not contain actual ISO Rules.
New ISO Rules Framework
The new ISO Rules Framework is intended to bring all related information into one area. This includes, the ISO Rules and the legislative/regulatory authority to create those rules, Information Documents inclusive of templates and forms, associated Consultation Document along with the relevant decision documents from the Alberta Utilities Commission. Again, please note that the table below is only for illustration purposes; the table does not contain actual ISO Rules.
