Minister plans progress reports on LTEP, to increase transparency
Speaking at the APPrO 2013 conference on Tuesday evening, Ontario Energy Minister Bob Chiarelli outlined two key components of the Long Term Energy Plan soon to be released by the provincial government. First of all, he made it clear the government will be very cautious before committing to major new expenditures.
Secondly, he explained that the Long Term Energy Plan (LTEP) will continue to be updated on a three year cycle. In addition there will be a new form of progress reporting designed to improve transparency. The Minister said he will ask the IESO to produce annual reports on the progress of the LTEP. The details are yet to be released but the intention appears to be enriching the information available about the plan at any given time, and making it easier for the public and stakeholders to assess the progress of the LTEP.
