Ontario Releases Quarterly Energy Report
Updating the Energy and Supply Picture for the Province
Ontario has released the first quarterly Energy Report. The report, created in partnership with the Independent Electricity System Operator (IESO), highlights key trends in the energy sector.
The new report supports the Open Government initiative, and provides ratepayers with a tool to help understand Ontario's clean and reliable electricity system.
Using a variety of sources, the quarterly report highlights energy sector trends including changes in supply and demand. The report can be found on ontarioenergyreport.ca along with links to content from the Ontario Ministry of Energy and its energy sector agencies.
The province's four-part economic plan is building Ontario up by investing in people's talents and skills, building new public infrastructure like roads and transit, creating a dynamic, supportive environment where business thrives, and building a secure pension plan so everyone can afford to retire.
- Energy reporting was one of the commitments of Achieving Balance, Ontario’s 2013 Long-Term Energy Plan.
- Ontario’s Long-Term Energy Plan is built around five key principles – cost-effectiveness, reliability, clean energy, community engagement and putting conservation first.
- Ontario is the first jurisdiction in North America to eliminate coal as a source of electricity production. Eliminating coal reduced Ontario emissions by about 30 megatonnes – making it the single largest climate change initiative in North America.
