AESO Stakeholder Symposium

On June 27, the AESO hosted an inaugural symposium aimed at briefing stakeholders on the major challenges and initiatives the AESO is currently prioritizing. 

The overarching theme of the day’s discussion is that the Alberta electric grid is changing. Wind and solar capacity is growing rapidly (capacity is expected to more than double from 2021 levels by 2025).  Battery storage is coming online and there is an expectation that policies aimed at decarbonizing the grid will continue. Additionally, there is potential for even more change as demand side management evolves.   These changes already pose challenges for system reliability, and the AESO expects that more work will need to be done to enhance reliability as well as address market structure challenges.
