Abstract

Integrated resource planning (IRP) is a new way for utilities and state regulatory commissions to consistently assess a variety of demand and supply resources to cost-effectively meet customer energy-service needs. This paper reviews recent progress in IRP and identifies the need for additional work by utilities, regulatory commissions, and other organizations.
