The Council for Clean & Reliable Electricity and the Centre for Urban Energy at Ryerson University invite you to attend a conference on The Future for LDCs: Are New Business and Regulatory Models Required for LDCs to Survive? being held on Wednesday October 15, 2014. This conference provides LDCs with the opportunity to consider issues vital to their survival with industry and academic experts.
LDCs have seen the cost of delivering electricity increase due to a number of factors beyond their control, including the effects of Provincial green energy and conservation policies. While conservation and technological innovation reduce the load, the socialization of green energy costs increase system supply costs. These increased costs in turn create incentives for consumers to either leave the grid, or use it as a standby facility. The cumulative effect of these forces may require LDCs to adopt a new business model and may require, in addition, a new regulatory construct.
Who should attend
• Officers, Directors and Senior Managers of LDCs
• Members of Municipal Council and Senior Municipal Staff
• LDC stakeholders
