Rob Coulbeck, vice president of regulatory affairs at ENBALA Power Networks, has been appointed to represent electricity service providers on the Independent Electricity System Operator's (IESO) Stakeholder Advisory Committee.

The committee provides an opportunity for electricity industry professionals to be informed of IESO activities and to offer policy-level advice directly to the IESO board. Members also discuss reliability standards, the future evolution of the markets, IESO plans, and any other stakeholder considerations.

"We've added this new constituency to our [committee] to recognize the increasing role of electricity service providers in our stakeholder community," says Terry Young, vice president of corporate relations at IESO. "Rob's experience integrating demand management technologies in other markets will be a valuable asset to our stakeholdering process as we look to integrate these services here in Ontario."

Coulbeck is responsible for ENBALA's regulatory and rule requirements as determined by the independent system operators and regional transmission operators. He has over 25 years of electricity industry experience with a strong focus in power grid management, generation portfolio optimization, energy trading and demand-side management.

"My mission is to stand as the voice of our forward-thinking constituents and advocate for any ideas and initiatives on their behalf,” says Coulbeck. “The importance of communication and engagement cannot be ignored in our evolving industry, and I look forward to delving into crucial discussions with fellow members."
