    Comprehensive Market Design (CMD)

    Throughout 2017, the AESO engaged working groups and stakeholders in the development of the capacity market design. The CMD Final is the culmination of 18 months of extensive analysis, due diligence and significant input gathered from experts representing a broad range of stakeholder groups.

    Previous iterations of the design, including all the stakeholder feedback and comments we received, are below. We are continuing to talk to stakeholders about the capacity market. To learn more about our upcoming stakeholder engagement sessions click here

    CMD working groups

    To help design a capacity market that will meet Alberta’s needs, the AESO will rely heavily on the participation of stakeholders. The AESO has consolidated the five design working groups that supported the SAM process into three working groups to support the Comprehensive Market Design.
