Congestion Analysis

We also conduct transmission constraint and congestion analyses and estimate costs of mitigating those constraints and congestions. These analyses may be used for sitting new generation and/or transmission facilities as well as to establish the valuation of existing assets.

Integrated Resource Planning (IRP)

IRP provides a common framework for balancing the goals by considering all supply and demand options as potential contributors and selecting an integrated set of least-cost resources that meets expected needs. The result is an opportunity to achieve lower overall costs that might result from considering only supply-side options. Furthermore, the inclusion of demand-side options presents more possibilities for saving fuel and reducing negative environmental impacts that might be possible if only supply-side options were considered.

An integrated resource plan should include the full range of resource options, ranging from traditional power plants to more innovative sources of electricity supply such as power purchases, independent power plants, cogeneration, demand-side management (energy efficiency and load management), and renewable energy sources.
