The Future of Electricity Resource Planning

September 29, 2016

This webinar discusses Report No. 6, The Future of Electricity Resource Planning in the Future Electric Utility Regulation Series. This report examines the future of electricity resource planning in the context of a changing electricity industry. The report examines emerging issues and evolving practices in five key areas that will shape the future of resource planning: (1) central-scale generation, (2) distributed generation, (3) demand-side resources, (4) transmission and (5) uncertainty and risk management. The analysis draws on a review of recent resource plans for 10 utilities that reflect some of the U.S. electricity industry’s extensive diversity.
