The increasing penetration of renewable generation on power grids, especially from distributed energy resources (DERs), is causing a profound transformation in integrated resource planning (IRP). The scope of IRPs has expanded to incorporate integrated grid and distribution planning as well as many additional factors.
The influx of variable distributed resources, transmission and distribution upgrades, grid modernization, customer choice considerations, and stakeholder communication—together with heightened reliability and cost considerations—has essentially shifted resource planning to include capacity together with generation planning.
For well over ten years, Solari has been fortunate to be at the forefront of this integrated resource planning transition. We bring this expertise and experience to your resource planning process, and ensure your IRP meets policy as well as strategic goals.
