Innovative Research Group
Jason Lockhart is a Vice President at Innovative Research Group. He has provided strategic advice and research to some of the country’s largest power producers, transmission companies and distributors as well as industry associations, governments and regulatory bodies.
Jason has extensive experience in designing and executing research programs that respond to a wide range of challenges in the energy sector – particularly in the areas of NIMBY, infrastructure siting, conservation program evaluation, public consultation, consumer protection, communications testing, and brand assessment.
Over the past decade, INNOVATIVE has been pioneering the use of public opinion tools to facilitate customer engagement needs. Jason has designed and managed a number of consumer consultation programs in Ontario to support rate applications under the OEB’s Renewed Regulatory Framework for Electricity distributors (RRFE), customer satisfaction studies to support Ontario distributor’s OEB Scorecard reporting requirements, as well as consumer consultations to support Integrated Regional Resource Planning (IRRP) and the OEB’s review of the Energy Consumer Protection Act.
