Title: Ontario’s Energy - A Review of the Present and a Proposal for Future Development
Authors: Kumar, Gaurav
Advisor: Karney, Bryan William
Department: Civil Engineering
Keywords: Ontario Supply Mix
Power optimization
Issue Date: 27-Jul-2010
Abstract: The work presents a framework for analyzing complex decision making in policy from the perspective of planning power supply mix for Ontario. Concepts of sustainability are introduced and analyzed followed by an in-depth view of two case studies. The first analyzes the power supply mix for Ontario and the second analyzes policy impacts in Germany and Denmark. A linear programming model, including energy storage is then developed that would yield an optimized sustainability based development policy for electricity production in Ontario. Future work is recommended to calibrate and run the model. The analysis discusses the new model in relation to the first case study and provides a mechanism to evaluate tradeoffs traditionally unquantifiable, to yield a strategic plan for electricity development in Ontario.
