CPUC Staff Workshop on 2014 LTPP and TPP Assumptions, Scenarios, and RPS Portfolios 12/18/13
The California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC), in collaboration with the California Independent System Operator (ISO) and the California Energy Commission (CEC) will host a staff workshop at the CPUC on December 18, 2013. The workshop is scheduled to discuss planning assumptions and scenarios and the renewable resource portfolios that will be utilized in the CPUC 2014-2015 long term procurement plan proceeding provided to the ISO for use in the ISO 2014-2015 transmission planning process. Comments on the assumptions, scenarios and portfolios will be received as part of the workshop process and the ISO transmission planning process.
The CPUC Energy Division staff, in collaboration with the ISO and CEC, will host a staff workshop at the CPUC on December 18, 2013. The three agencies worked together preparing joint assumptions and scenarios and the renewable resource portfolios to be presented at the workshop, ensuring consistency in the assumptions used in the studies conducted for the CPUC 2014-2015 long term procurement plan proceeding and the ISO 2014-2015 transmission planning process (TPP).
The draft assumptions, scenarios and portfolios will be available at https://ia.cpuc.ca.gov/eventscalendar/ by December 13. The ISO encourages stakeholders to participate in the workshop process and provide comments on the assumptions in accordance with the process and schedule established at the workshop.
As part of phase 1 of the 2014-2015 TPP stakeholder process, in February 2014 the ISO will introduce the planning assumptions in the draft Unified Planning Assumptions and Study Plan. Stakeholders will be provided the opportunity to submit comments according to the milestone dates outlined in the TPP.
