The Alberta Electric System Operator (AESO) is responsible for ensuring a reliable and affordable power system in Alberta. A not-for-profit organization with no financial investment in the power industry, the AESO operates the market and grid, connects load and generation customers and plans the transmission system on behalf of Albertans. The AESO works closely with industry partners and the government to meet the province’s power needs now and into the future. The opportunity to be a founding sponsor of Women+Power aligns with the AESO’s value of inclusion for women and increasing their representation in the power industry. Their current initiatives expand to the grade school and university levels. With Women+Power, the AESO endeavours to impact women in the power industry, at various stages of their professional careers, to help them thrive.
