    Invitation to Stakeholders - AESO 2019 Budget Review Process

    The AESO is extending an invitation to stakeholders who have an interest in participating in the continuation of the Budget Review Process (BRP), which will be used to establish the AESO’s business plan and budget for 2018 and possibly beyond.

    The intent of this period’s BRP is largely the same as that undertaken by the AESO and stakeholders in previous years. That is to: i) provide the AESO’s 2019 forecasts of Transmission Line Losses and Ancillary Services Costs and ii) consult on the Business Initiatives and Own Costs proposed for 2019. It is also intended to assist the AESO Board in formalizing its Board Decision regarding the proposed budget and forecasts.

    The BRP is a consultative process. The AESO is interested in stakeholders’ input into this process and its forecasts. If you are interested in taking part in this BRP, please confirm your intention to participate in the enclosed stakeholder comments/reply matrix.

    Click here for a copy of the proposed BRP terms-of-reference, click here for a copy of the proposed process, click here for a copy of the proposed calendar and click here for a copy of the comments/reply matrix.

    The AESO is requesting that stakeholder comments be provided regarding this invitation and the enclosed supporting materials. Comments are to be returned in a completed comments/reply matrix to no later than Thursday, August 16, 2018.

    If you have any questions or additional information requirements, please do not hesitate to contact me at or 403.539.2590.
