    Capacity Market Training

    Training for the capacity market is being developed based on the rules that are currently filed with the AUC. Subscribe to the stakeholder newsletter and check this page to learn about resources as they become available.

    Our first course, Capacity Market 101, will help you understand the basics of the market, and will help you determine the different topics you might need to focus on in the future. After completing the course you will be invited to complete a brief survey to inform future training content.

    Our second course, Do I need to register as a CMP? This guide will help market participants determine whether they should register a capacity market participant (CMP) based on the asset type they have or plan to have.

    An Infographic highlighting the Base Auction Capacity Procurement Process, including key activities in each stage is also available, as well as a slide deck with further details on the activities shown in the Base Auction Capacity Procurement Process infographic.

    Further training will be developed in phases as processes are developed and information becomes available. Phase 1 will prepare stakeholders to participate in qualification activities for the capacity market by covering the below topics:

    • Demand curve

      • Rationale behind demand curve determination

      • Inputs to the demand curve

    • Qualification

      • Key activities
