Regional Infrastructure Planning Working Groups (EB-2011-0043)

In its October 30, 2012 letter related to the Renewed Regulatory Framework for Electricity Distributors, the Board announced the selection of working group members in relation to two working groups associated with Regional Infrastructure Planning.

  • Regional Infrastructure Planning Working Group: Planning Process
  • Regional Infrastructure Planning Working Group: Asset Redefinition

The focus of the two working groups is related to the implementation matters set out in the Report of the Board. The Planning Process Working Group will provide a report to the Board. The Asset Redefinition Working Group will provide advice to Board staff.  Members and materials related to each working group are set out below.

In the Notice of Code amendments, the Board indicated its intent to create a Regional Planning Standing Committee (the “RPSC”) to continue the work of the PPWG with a focus on considering the need for revisions to the regional planning process established by the PPWG, as required, based on lessons learned. The Board will announce the composition of the RPSC in the near future.
