An integrated resource plan (IRP) isn’t just a plan; it’s an involved process with multiple evaluation criteria that helps to determine both short and long-term load growth. Through a broad analysis of supply-side and customer service options, an integrated resource plan comes into fruition. IRP professionals gather for peer support of this process, and to better understand the challenges facing electric and natural gas providers in Western North America. Designed as a mix of interactive roundtable discussions and information-rich presentations, forum participants address topics such as resource management, data analysis and modeling, and stakeholder engagement.
Directors, senior leaders and key organizational contributors who manage the aspects and objectives of their utility’s integrated resource plan are invited to attend. Service companies and special interests should contact WEI about involvement.
