Engaging stakeholders to evaluate alternatives in energy system planning through agentbased automated negotiation

The objective of this project is to improve long-term planning of Alberta's electricity system infrastructure in collaboration with an industry sponsor, Alberta Electricity System Operator (AESO). The project aims at engaging stakeholders in a regional planning exercise in southern Alberta by a detailed exploration of their perspectives when evaluating energy system alternatives. This was identified by AESO as being a pressing gap in their current practice.
