1990s: Pushing from the Outside...

  • Ontario Hydro had programs in the 1990s – as part of Power Corporation Act of 1990

  • By late 1991, Ontario Hydro had invested nearly $179 million in energy conservation, which produced a reduction in demand, in that year, of 250 megawatts and resulted in a savings to customers of $28 million.

2005-2007: Leveraging LDCs

  • Name another industry that makes revenue from NOT selling its product?

  • Third tranche CDM activities

    • $163 million, 85 LDCs

    • 220 MW, 1,358 GWh

    • 57% residential, 31% ICI, 8% system, 4% low-income

  • Creating the culture of conservation

  • Customer service benefits

  • Creation of OPA

2008-Present : Sophistication

  • The Role of OPA vs LDCs is established

  • Province wide mandate – with customization

  • Shift focus to bigger CDM opportunities – commercial/industrial, demand response etc.

  • More sophistication re: market segmentation, use of channel partners

  • More legitimacy as part of energy system

The Future: Long Term Potential

Goal = 1330


Goal = 6,000


The Future: Long Term Potential

  • 2030 Long Term Energy Plan

    • 7100 MW

    • 28 TWh

  • Context: since 2003, we have achieved 1,700 MW; and that’s low hanging fruit

  • Evaluation, Monitoring, Verification will be important



  • Engineers talking to engineers

  • Different agendas for different people – the need for integration

  • Keeping the consumer at the centre of everything – sometimes we forget this

The Future of CDM

Conservation will play a key role in Ontario’s energy system

  • A long way to go – even new buildings are inefficient!

  • Smart grid is a function of smart people

  • Green jobs – 50:1 ratio

  • Codes and Standards – pushing market transformation

  • Energy Storage
