Free Research Integrated Distribution Planning: A Framework for the Future What is integrated distribution planning and when is it needed Four phases of transition from traditional to integrated planning Key implementation considerations and challenges A phased framework outlining the transition from traditional to integrated distribution planning 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 report to get what no others offer: the essentials to demystify IDP – from a definition to a four phased approach to transitioning from traditional to integrated distribution planning. After reading this report you’ll be able to answer: What is integrated distribution planning and how does it differ from traditional distribution planning? What is driving IDP? What resources exist to help utilities and their regulators’ IDP plans and what is required to achieve greater adoption of full-scale IDP? What are the key elements of an IDP? What are the phases of advancement from traditional planning to future phases of IDP? What are the challenges utilities, regulators, and other stakeholders will face as they transition through various phases of maturity in IDP and how can they overcome them? *According to Wood Mackenzie Integrated Distribution Planning: A Framework for the Future Name First Last Email CompanyTitleOrganization TypeUtilityCorporateGovernment, Non-Profit & Education Submit Sign me up to receive updates on Grid Integration?
