With projections that DER capacity could reach 397 gigawatts in five years*, utilities need to plan for a growing number of technical challenges within the grid. Anticipation of increased DER adoption, technology advancements and expanding clean energy goals are prompting reevaluation of current distribution planning practices, with a handful of states shifting towards “integrated distribution planning” (IDP). As other states and utilities follow, a deep understanding of IDP and the key challenges and considerations utilities, regulators and other stakeholders may face is valuable.

Download this slide deck to get the key takeaways on IDP from the full report – including a four-phased approach, key traits to distinguish traditional and integrated planning, state IDP regulatory activities and more. You’ll find tables, figures, maps and more from the full report.

Inside you’ll find:

  • Graphics summarizing the four phase framework and IDP planning process
  • Clear explanation of IDP and its key elements
  • A map of state regulatory IDP activities
  • And more
