    Purpose

    The purpose of this initiative is to provide a forum for interested stakeholders to review and discuss their perspectives as it relates to the existing Alberta reliability standards (ARS) Program, collectively share, listen and consider different viewpoints, and collaborate on potential enhancements to the ARS Program with a focus on driving efficiencies that will result in a reduction in regulatory burden for market participants, while maintaining the safe, reliable, and economic operation of the Alberta Interconnected Electric System (AIES) .

    This initiative will seek to:

    • Consider a greater adoption of risk-based approaches across the ARS program.
