We support the development of electric and natural gas utilities’ Integrated Resource Plan/Forecast & Supply Plan strategies and regulatory filings. Our services include demand forecasts and evaluations of regulatory policies, including Renewable Portfolio Standards, existing utility portfolios and resource mix, market assessments, and portfolio optimization. We design and administer resource procurement processes including asset purchases, Renewable Energy Credit purchases, power purchase agreements, the development of new assets, and the acquisition of power supply alternatives. We also have extensive experience in supporting resource planning efforts and the justification and procurement of new supply to meet identified needs in Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity filings. In jurisdictions where an Independent Evaluator (“IE”) is required or desired, we provide IE services including third-party monitoring and review of RFP processes and results, and, if desired by the commission, parallel independent evaluation and modeling of bids.
