July 19, 2017 Welcome to RENEW, a quarterly publication of the Ontario Waterpower Association (OWA). This issue features two active policy development initiatives that each could have significant implications for the industry. First, the IESO’s Market Renewal program has the potential to make fundamental structural changes to how electricity is valued, procured and dispatched in Ontario. Second, recommendations by an Expert Panel on the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act, if adopted, could result in an entirely new paradigm for planning and developing a waterpower facility. This issue also celebrates Canada’s 150th birthday with an overview of the Association’s 2017 outreach and education program and reflects upon another successful engagement of MPPs at our annual Queen’s Park Day. Though the provincial legislature has now risen until the fall, it promises to be anything but a calm summer!
