Capacity market update
On July 24, 2019, the Government of Alberta announced that Alberta will not transition to a capacity market, and will continue with an energy-only market. In a letter dated July 25, 2019, the AESO received notification from the government on how this decision will be implemented. The letter also directs us to provide advice by July 31, 2020 on whether changes are needed to the energy-only market, including changes to the price floor/ceiling and shortage pricing. In addition, the AESO is directed to provide advice to government on market power and market power mitigation by November 29, 2019.
We look forward to engaging with Alberta Energy and industry stakeholders on this important work.
Capacity market information will be available on this page for historical reference only until Dec. 31, 2019.
