Indiana 2021 IRP Stakeholder Engagement
Duke Energy Indiana has established a stakeholder engagement process to inform our 2021 Integrated Resource Plan (IRP) in compliance with the proposed Commission IRP rule. Our hope for the 2021 stakeholder process is that it be more open, transparent and data driven than meetings in the past. We ask that stakeholders approach the process with the same intention and encourage stakeholders to ask questions, make suggestions and provide data as they see fit.
Duke Energy Indiana has four main objectives for this stakeholder engagement process.
- Listen: Understand concerns and objectives.
- Inform: Increase stakeholders' understanding of the IRP process, key assumptions and challenges we face.
- Consider: Provide a forum for productive stakeholder feedback at key points in the IRP process to inform Duke Energy Indiana's decision-making.
- Comply: Comply with the proposed Commission IRP rule.
Stakeholder Process Overview
Duke Energy Indiana will seek participants' feedback throughout the IRP development process. At the core of the process is a series of seven workshops.
Integrated Resource Plan Overview
Duke Energy Indiana will file its 2021 Integrated Resource Plan (IRP) for the State of Indiana with the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission on Nov. 1, 2021. This plan, a 20-year forecast required by the Commission, outlines how we will serve our existing and future customers in a reliable and economic manner. Duke Energy Indiana uses the resource planning process to identify the best options to serve customers' energy and capacity needs in the future.
