RFP - Valuation Method for Electric Ancillary Services

Deadline for applications extended to Wednesday April 15, 5:00PM AST

OERA on behalf of the Nova Scotia Department of Energy and Mines is soliciting proposals for a project that will help define a new, enhanced power purchase agreement (PPA) for use by Independent Power Producers and Nova Scotia Power Inc. (NSPI).  The purpose of this project is to develop the framework for a PPA that delivers more value to independent power producers and NSPI ratepayers than is currently the case. This study’s intent is to identify the types of ancillary services that could be procured as part of a renewable energy project, and determine how providers may differentiate their bids by offering these services. This work is intended to provide support for future procurement of renewable energy and capacity in Nova Scotia in the best interest of electricity ratepayers, allowing all resources to compete fairly to meet carbon emission reduction targets.
