TOPIC: Electric Transmission System Development in Alberta

The Alberta Electric System Operator (AESO) is Canada's first customer-focused exchange for electricity. As an independent system operator the AESO leads the safe, reliable and economic operation and planning of Alberta's interconnected power system. The AESO also facilitates Alberta's hourly wholesale electricity market, which has more than 200 participants and between $3 and $5 billion in annual energy transactions, and is accountable for the overall coordination of provincial load settlement.

The AESO is currently developing proposals for a number of significant expansions to the electric transmission system in Alberta. These expansions are focused on maintaining system reliability and also on developing a transmission system that will facilitate a robust competitive market for electricity. The presentation will outline some of the challenges currently facing the development of the system and will provide some highlights of the major projects being proposed.
