RFI - Solutions to Mitigate the Instantaneous Impacts of Sudden Supply Loss

Introduction and purpose

The AESO is analyzing and assessing how to meet reliability needs through the development of a comprehensive Reliability Requirements Roadmap and related action plans. Preliminary perspectives were shared at a Sustaining Reliability through the Transformation stakeholder information session in August 2022, where the highest priority identified was frequency response capability.

The AESO is taking action to address reliability challenges by introducing a new and innovative engagement initiative—a Request for Information (RFI) for Solutions to Mitigate the Instantaneous Impacts of Sudden Supply Loss. The RFI deadline was Nov. 30, 2022, and submissions are now being reviewed.

In our 2021 Technology Forward Report, the AESO notes that cross-functional collaboration with industry, stakeholders and government is essential to successfully address the opportunities and challenges presented by new technologies and a changing supply mix. This RFI enables the AESO to capitalize on industry knowledge and expertise to identify what technological solutions may be available to implement between 2024 and no later than 2031 to manage the instantaneous impacts of sudden supply loss under different system conditions.
