Andrew Marquard, Brett Cohen, Mavo Solomon, Bruno Merven
Energy Systems Analysis and Planning
Energy Research Centre
Focus on utility-owned central power plants
Planning within utility system planning department
All resources owned by the utility
Resources selected to minimise electricity prices and maintain system reliability
Integrated Resource Planning
Diversity of resources - utility plants, power purchases, DSM, T&D improvements
Planning spread among several departments, involving customers (and government?)
IPPs and small producers could also be included
Diverse resource selection criteria - prices, revenue requirements, utility financial health, risk, fuel diversity, environmental qualityIRP versus Traditional Planning
Proposed process for developing IRP 2
Criteria for Assessment:
Traditional - technical and cost barriers – also a necessity!
Detailed technical studies / tenders / market mechanisms etc.
- Detailed technical elaborations of possible aspirations
- Infrastructure development (plants, transmission, etc)
The main goal of SNAPP and similar tools is to empower a wider group of stakeholders to elaborate policy goals for the electricity sector through scenario development
