Now Available: What We Heard: A Report Back on Stakeholder Input at Policy Day 2023

What We Heard: A Report Back on Stakeholder Input reflects the feedback of the 150 representatives of distributors, transmitters, generators, technology innovators, academics, consumers and government in attendance at Policy Day. This input will play a critical role in helping the OEB stay focused on the right priorities as the energy sector undergoes unprecedented transformation.

Anecdotal reports tell us the workshops had robust and insightful conversations and a post-event survey indicated many participants have a better understanding of the OEB’s plans and priorities for the near term after attending Policy Day, believe the OEB is considering the right priorities within its forward work program, and feel the OEB was genuinely interested in the input from stakeholders during Policy Day.

Policy Day 2023 enabled a collaborative exchange of ideas on a range of topics:

  • EV charging accessibility
  • Continued effectiveness of adjudicative policies & intervenor participation in the hearing process
  • Technology transformation by leveraging technology solutions to modernize how the OEB regulates
  • Developing a benefit-cost analysis for local electricity system planning - characterization of societal impacts
  • The regulator’s role in implementing a distribution system operator model in Ontario

This valuable feedback is now informing our work to develop the OEB’s 2024-2027 Business Plan, the submission of which is due to the Ministry of Energy by December 31, 2023.
