DEEP: Integrated Resource Planning

2012 Integrated Resource Plan
Public Act 11-80 required the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) to prepare an Integrated Resource Plan. An Integrated Resource Plan (IRP) is comprised of an assessment of the future electric needs and a plan to meet those future needs.  It is “integrated” in that it looks at both demand side (conservation, energy efficiency, etc.) resources as well as the more traditional supply side (generation/power plants, transmission lines, etc.) resources in making its recommendations on how best to meet future electric energy needs in the state.

On June 14, 2012, DEEP issued the final version of the IRP.  The IRP reflects the input of many stakeholders including the distribution utilities, generation community, transmission companies, energy efficiency industry, environmental community, business leaders, and the public.
