Traditional utility integrated resource planning (IRP) modeling, analysis and preparation have been dominated by:

  • Central station firm generation sited at specific locations
  • Fueled mainly by gas, coal, oil, and nuclear
  • With one-way transmission and distribution systems
  • Well-established reliability and high resource capacity factors

This program will pivot to the new IRP paradigm. It is designed by integrated resource planners for integrated resource planners and will tackle several conditions throttling contemporary resource planning.  Leading utility, power resource planning professionals and related industry experts will address the key elements associated with these emerging operational issues, environmental mandates, variable energy resources, regulatory policies, and uncertainty factors that now dominate IRP planning requirements.

The conference will blend presentations from utilities, state regulatory staff/commissioners, non-utility SMEs, service providers and others from all over North America.  Case studies will provide a solid survey of “best practices” thinking and methodologies by a full range of utilities and subject matter experts.  And feature panels will draw out collaborative concepts for further consideration and implementation.

Learning Outcomes

Attendees will gain practical skills and insights on how to:

  • Develop resource plans that incorporate the full palette of supply and demand options
  • Describe how IRP planners can analyze, model and incorporate DERs and storage in IRPs
  • Identify how to properly account for all variables when analyzing, modeling and planning portfolio decisions
  • Determine the value of portfolio flexibility for resource planning and market operations
  • Discuss the range of inputs that future resource decisions should incorporate to map a pathway for attainment of carbon-free generation resource outcomes
  • Evaluate the portfolio effects of high penetration renewable energy resources in production cost models
  • Examine the preparation of IRP documentation with regulatory and stakeholder review and engagement in mind

Conference Timing

9:00 – 9:20 a.m. :: Overview and Introductions

9:20 – 10:45 a.m. :: Embedding Climate Risks, Consequences & System Accommodations into the IRP

Closely related, but different from, the imperative to de-carbonize a power system’s footprint is how the IRP models that power system’s exposure (risk) to climate change impacts.  This segment will consider:

  • Accommodate risks and uncertainties of climate change impacts
  • How various utilities are evaluating those impacts
  • How those impacts are being “monetized”
  • How the IRP is converting those impacts and risks – known and unknown – into avoidance measures
  • Modeling and embedding anticipated and/or unknown technologies into the plan
  • Policy risk
  • Price of carbon
  • Gathering data
  • Analysis tools
  • Decision analysis

Phillip J. Popoff, Director – Resource Planning & Analysis, Puget Sound Energy

Jenifer Hedrick, Senior Project Manager – Integrated Resource, Southern California Edison

10:45 – 11:00 a.m. :: Morning Break

11:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. :: De-carbonization: Modeling Options and Limitations

Several states and utilities in the U.S. have announced goals for a totally carbon-free generation mix over the next two to three decades.  While such announcements provide broad guidance, any utility’s resource portfolio strategy to meet such targets will be influenced by its individual load shape, the available technology options, and the market and regulatory environment in which the utility operates.  This presentation will address several resource planning considerations associated with a potential carbon-free future in the context of a practical case study.

Norm Richardson, President, Anchor Power Solutions

Jon Landrum, Director – Resource Planning, Xcel Energy

Nick Phillips, Director – Integrated Resource Planning, Public Service Company of New Mexico (PNM)

Greg Turk, Managing Partner, Horizons Energy

12:30 – 1:15 p.m. :: Lunch Break

1:15 – 2:45 p.m. :: The Future of Gas Power in IRPs

The concept a few years that natural gas would serve as a “bridge fuel” in the transition from coal and nuclear generation to renewable energy resources is less embraced by multiple stakeholders.  Many jurisdictions are limiting gas power plant options going forward, despite evident challenges confronting the industry to achieve the replacement of all fossil generation within the aggressive time frames targeted by legislators.  This segment will review how several utility IRPs are tackling this conundrum.

Ryder Couch, Manager – Thermal Generation, Sacramento Municipal Utility District (SMUD)

Aaron Burdick, Associate Director, Energy+Environmental Economics (E3)

2:45 – 3:00 p.m. :: Afternoon Break

3:00 – 4:30 p.m. :: The Future of IRP: ISP! Integrated System Planning

To properly support the transition to a cleaner, more sustainable and digital energy industry, utility and market planners need to adopt a more integrated and holistic view of the planning processes.  Silo planning and iterative processes will no longer provide acceptable expansion plans.  ISP is a new process for optimizing infrastructure build decisions, considering generation, transmission, energy storage, renewables, V2G, hydrogen and gas systems, among others.  It unifies planning, modeling and optimization across multiple business units considering each corporate objective, regulatory requirements, customer needs and market trends.

Conference Timing

 

9:00 – 10:30 a.m. :: The Alphabet Soup of Resource Adequacy Measures –   What They Mean and Their Ultimate Value in the IRP

Ensuring reliability of service is an essential requirement for a utility or power system planner.  No one standard used to determine what is the appropriate and available capacity needed to minimize reliability and sufficient reserves, however, may be fully adequate to capture this critical dimension.  This segment will explore the multiple methods of planning around the capacity values and assigned standards for determining appropriate resource adequacy, reliability and reserve margin modeling in an integrated resource plan (IRP).  It will devote special attention to an approach referred to as effective load-carrying capability (ELCC), which is emerging as an important complement to better gauge the impact of renewable energy resources on reliability assessment criteria.

Vignesh Venugopal, Senior Consultant, Energy+Environmental Economics (E3)

10:30 – 10:45 a.m. :: Morning Break

10:45 a.m. – 12:15 p.m. :: Modeling EVs and Electrification in IRPs

Modeling electric vehicles (EVs) and the electrification of other non-transportation devices is, in some ways, similar to storage –  but, in more ways, divergent.  As this technological conversion occurs, utilities and other power systems must get the equation right or they will encounter potentially significant consequences.  This segment will consider different approaches undertaken to assess and prepare for this shift and the pitfalls to avoid.

12:15 – 1:00 p.m. :: Lunch Break

1:00 – 2:30 p.m. :: The Role of Medium-Term Portfolio Optimization in Long-Term IRPs

Today, almost all electric utilities design their IRP to identify changes in an existing portfolio of generation resources that addresses future changes in load, plant retirements, or new capacity additions while complying with regulations and meeting sustainability, reliability, and economic goals. This approach requires investing into a capital-intensive physical resource portfolio to satisfy the utility’s combined peak load plus a reserve margin.  After doing so, there is no room left to take advantage of future energy market opportunities presented by dropping prices – sometimes for extended periods of time – driven by everdecreasing costs of existing and emerging generation technologies. Increasingly, utilities have started to realize this shortcoming and are exploring a hybrid strategy, which includes a combination of some local self-build resources while procuring the rest of the demand requirements from an ISO/RTO market (where applicable). This segment will discuss the role that medium-term portfolio optimization can play in leveraging the future market opportunities that become available as energy market prices are driven down by declining costs of sustainable generation technologies and the change(s) in the traditional IRP modeling approach needed to leverage such portfolio optimization strategies.

Amit Gohil, Director – Portfolio Optimization & Risk Management, Siemens

Marie Fontenot, Senior Director – Power Resources, East Bay Community Energy

2:30 – 2:45 p.m. :: Afternoon Break

2:45 – 4:15 p.m. :: Properly Evaluating Non-Wire Alternatives (NWAs) and Other Cost Avoidance Strategies

“Doing more with less” is the mantra that perhaps best explains the concept of non-wires alternatives (NWAs).  Even though the term is of relatively recent vintage, it’s not a new concept.  In fact, the requirement for efficiency is more urgent than ever as power system infrastructure grows a beard, expensive technology advances push performance limits, and policy mandates multiply.  This segment will explore the means by which IRP practitioners can evaluate the strategies and operational measures to moderate anticipated capital requirements for maintaining system reliability and resiliency.

Howard Smith, Principal, Renewable & Grid Edge Consulting

4:15 p.m. :: Adjournment
