For the purposes of this report, “utility” refers to any entity that engages in long-term supply- and demand-side planning to serve the load requirements of its customers. This typically applies to vertically-integrated utilities, which may include investor-owned utilities (IOUs), municipal utilities, and electric cooperatives. Deep Dive How utility pilot programs are driving renewable energy integration SCE and APS want to use electric vehicles, water heaters and demand response to help add more wind and solar to .
Programs which address demand issues of an energy utility are referred to as Demand-Side Management (DSM) and are extremely rigorous in scope. Electric utilities have pursued many different DSM policies and strategies during the past decade. TITLE 17 PUBLIC UTILITIES AND UTILITY SERVICES CHAPTER 7 ENERGY CONSERVATION PART 3 INTEGRATED RESOURCE PLANS FOR ELECTRIC UTILITIES ISSUING AGENCY: New Mexico Public Regulation Commission. [ NMAC - N, 4/16/] SCOPE: This rule applies to all electric utilities subject to the commission’s jurisdiction over.
Utilities, however, are beginning to consider alternative approaches to dealing with transmission and distribution capacity constraints, such as using photovoltaic and other distributed generation technologies or reducing demand through targeted demand side management programs (Ref. 9). These investments can reduce a utility’s variable costs. Cost Planning, which morphed into Integrated Resource Planning • The concept of Demand-Side Management (DSM) emerged alongside IRP to provide a framework for identifying resources on the demand side of the meter • DSM may include energy efficiency (EE), load management/demand response (DR), plus rate designs that encourage either or both.

Electric Utility Demand Side Management - Archive Background Demand-side management (DSM) programs consist of the planning, implementing, and monitoring activities of electric utilities which are designed to encourage consumers to modify their level and pattern of electricity usage.
Utility Planning Approaches and Requirements Description Some public utility commissions require utilities to conduct portfolio management or integrated resource planning (IRP) to ensure the supply of least cost and stable electric service to customers over the long term.

Chapter 3 Demand-Side Resources Current Situation Utilities in many states have been implementing energy efficiency and load management programs (collectively called demand-side resources), some for more than two decades. According to one source, U.S. electric utilities spent $ billion on.
It summarizes three recent utility IRPs, in an effort to determine both best practices in integrated resource planning and ways in which utilities can improve their planning processes and outcomes. The paper then presents a series of recommendations, developed from these examples, for integrated resource planning and its resulting plans.
21st Century Electric Utilities: Integrated Resource Planning and Beyond Mary R. English, Ph.D. Conceived three decades ago, just as the world of electric utilities was about to change radically, integrated resource planning is more essential than ever.

For the utility, competitive acquisition allows it to ration contracts for non-utility resources in an efficient by: 6. Planning is integral to everything we do. It is especially important in determining how we meet the future energy needs of our customers.
At the core of this work is our Electric and Natural Gas Integrated Resource Plans (IRPs) that support our Energy Vision and its strategic pillars – Economic, Environment, Resiliency and Innovation. Our energy IRPs are a roadmap to meet forecasted energy.
The state Public Service Commission has accepted the Integrated Resource Plan from Mon Power and Potomac Edison that predicts a shortfall in their generating capacity starting this year and growing steadily through As outlined in the plan, parent company FirstEnergy is exploring several options: Buying an existing plant, switching some current plants from all coal to percent co-fired.
One opportunity for empirical analysis is provided by the past energy efficiency subsidies, called demand-side management programs, offered by electric utilities in North America over several decades.
An Introduction to Integrated Resources Planning. By: these better outcomes involve considerably higher investment in energy efficiency and demand-side management than utilities would deploy without an IRP process. The new International Rivers guide to Integrated Resource Planning introduces the IRP concept, contrasts it with conventional.
