Ontario’s Energy Future (Net Zero)

Barring a technological miracle, Ontario’s $400 billion plan to “decarbonize” its electrical grid will lean heavily on energy storage.

That isn’t bluster or some marketing gimmick. It’s one of the key findings in a December report by the province’s Independent Electricity System Operator (IESO). The authors argue that Ontario is faced by a once-in-a-generation challenge — to double its electrical output over the next 30 years while taking thousands of Megawatts of gas-burning power offline.
