State-level resource planning
Assisted the investor-owned utilities and regulators in Connecticut in complying with a legislative mandate to develop annual resource and procurement plans for the state, over several annual cycles. Focused particularly on the development of a set of scenarios against which alternative resource plans were evaluated, in order to illuminate the risks that might be associated with such plans. Key issues were natural gas prices, potential federal climate legislation, electricity demand, and demand management strategies, as well as the complex interplay between these factors. Also evaluated several energy security issues, including interactions between natural gas availability and electric reliability.
