Key take-aways from Connecticut DEEP's Integrated Resource Plan (IRP):

Six key objectives:

  1.     Decarbonizing the Electricity Sector
  2.     Securing the Benefits of Competition & Minimizing Ratepayer Risk
  3.     Ensuring Energy Affordability and Equity for all Ratepayers
  4.     Optimal Siting of Generation Resources
  5.     Transmission Upgrades & Integration of Variable and Distributed Energy Resources
  6.     Balancing Decarbonization and Other Public Policy Goals

Next Steps:

Connecticut is making progress in pursuing reform of the wholesale markets, in collaboration with the other New England States.  

DEEP will be co-convening with the other New England states several technical sessions to engage with stakeholders on wholesale market reform,
transmission planning, and ISO-NE governance reform.  

These sessions will be held online in January and February 2021 and will be open to the public.
