1 Scope
This document specifies requirements for establishing, implementing, maintaining and improving an energy management system (EnMS). The intended outcome is to enable an organization to follow a
systematic approach in achieving continual improvement of energy performance and the EnMS.
This document:
a) is applicable to any organization regardless of its type, size, complexity, geographical location,
organizational culture or the products and services it provides;
b) is applicable to activities affecting energy performance that are managed and controlled by the
organization;
c) is applicable irrespective of the quantity, use, or types of energy consumed;
d) requires demonstration of continual energy performance improvement, but does not define levels
of energy performance improvement to be achieved;
e) can be used independently, or be aligned or integrated with other management systems.
Annex A provides guidance for the use of this document. Annex B provides a comparison of this edition with the previous edition.

Scope

1.1

This Standard specifies the technical requirements for the interconnection of distributed energy resources (DER) and distribution systems up to 50 kV line to line at the point of common coupling (PCC).

1.2

This Standard does not define the maximum DER capacity or the upper voltage limit for installations that are interconnected with a single PCC or connected to a given feeder.

1.3

The objective of this Standard is to specify minimum requirements for the

(a)   safety of persons;

(b)   continuity of service; and

(c)   protection of property.

1.4

This Standard does not apply to secondary network connections and does not address

(a)   protection of the power producer’s facility;

(b)   operating requirements for DER units;

(c)   transmission system impact and upgrades;

(d)   planning, design, or operation of the distribution system or DER system;

(e)   metering, rates, tariffs, and other contractual or commercial issues associated with interconnection; or

(f)    interconnection of distributed energy resources and distribution systems that are not ultimately connected to a province-wide or regional electricity grid (i.e., remote locations). The wires owner of the remote grid may apply the standard in part or whole, where appropriate for the remote grid.

1.5

In this Standard, “shall” is used to express a requirement, i.e., a provision that the user is obliged to satisfy in order to comply with the Standard; “should” is used to express a recommendation or that which is advised but not required; “may” is used to express an option or that which is permissible within the limits of the Standard.

Notes accompanying clauses do not include      requirements or alternative requirements; the purpose of a note accompanying a clause is to separate from the text explanatory or informative material.
