To become smart grid leaders, Ontario needs to effect a transformation in a risk-averse environment. To do so, the province needs not only to advance its electricity infrastructure but also embrace a long-term and global vision. This breakfast panel brings together diverse energy-sector stakeholders, including utilities, key industry players, government authorities, regulatory bodies and innovators. Does an opportunity exist for Ontario utilities that implement intelligent operations to leverage that expertise into other markets? Can synergy between innovation and the electricity sector be created to support these practices? How much are we open to change? http://www.marsdd.com/events/details/ontario-smart-grid-opportunities-electrical-utility-sector/

Grid Smarts in Ontario ! Regulatory and Infrastructure Support 2.6% of Ontarios electricity is from wind, a 40% increase Ontario has a Feed-in-Tari for renewable energy projects Ontario has time-of-use rates and 500 MW of demand response Nearly 100% of Ontarios meters are smart ! Demonstration Projects Energate pilot allowed customers to control and monitor energy consumption along with consumer-connected demand response Enbalas projects in North America pave the way for frequency regulation 13 13. Summary and outlook ! What is driving smart grid technology adoption? Though smart meters will lay the smart grid foundation, it is the resulting inux of data that will drive new markets ! Why are smart grid technologies important to utilities? Smart grid technologies align with the goals of utilities to improve reliability, safety, and reduce costs ! Where is the investment? Although later stage private investment and M&A continue to streamline the market, government funding will remain imperative for adoption ! How do regulations incentivize or constrain the market? While regulations indirectly and directly drive adoption, antiquated regulatory frameworks are slow to adapt new infrastructure ! How is Ontario doing? Ontario is equipped with the technology and infrastructure to rapidly expand its smart grid capabilities, but regulatory guidance will need to remain exible and adaptable to meet the goals in the Long-Term Energy Plan 14 14.

A Smart Grid is essential to Canadianeconomic prosperity.Over 60% of our GDP now comes from industries and servicesthat run on electricity; in 1950, the figure was only 20%. Since1980, over 85% of energy growth has been supplied by electricity.Manhattan Institute:The Million-Volt Answer to Oil 21. Our infrastructure is aging as weupgrade it we should be lookingforward. 22. Conservation is the cheapest way toaccommodate load growth. 23. A clean economy requires renewableenergy, which in turn, requires a smartgrid. 24. Outages cost money smart grid canimprove reliability.Power outages and interruptions cost Americans at least $150billion each year - about $500 for every man, woman and child.
