Given the number of AESO initiatives currently underway, the AESO proposes to host roundtable technical discussions between June and September 2023 to review bulk transmission line technical requirements. The AESO prefers to host the discussions in the form of in-person stakeholder sessions, with the possibility of a hybrid format (i.e., combined virtual and in-person), if necessary, to accommodate stakeholders who cannot attend in person. The AESO has prepared a Stakeholder Poll to gauge stakeholders’ interest and preferences regarding the roundtable technical discussions.
The AESO will determine further consultation steps pending the outcome of the roundtable technical discussions. The AESO expects that future consultation steps could include additional sessions, webinars, or written stakeholder feedback on specific issues. The AESO intends to produce a paper towards the conclusion of the engagement process summarizing its findings and recommendations based on input and feedback received during the stakeholder engagement process, with an opportunity for stakeholders to review and comment on the paper.
If, as a result of this engagement, the AESO determines that changes to AESO authoritative documents are required, these will be addressed through the applicable processes for developing ISO rules and Alberta reliability standards.
Request for Feedback
Please note that the stakeholder comment deadline has been extended from June 2, 2023, as indicated in the May 31, 2023 AESO Stakeholder Newsletter, to June 6, 2023.
