The Resource Planning Portal was funded by the National Electricity Delivery Division of the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Electricity (OE) Delivery and Energy Reliability under Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory Contract No. DE-AC02-05CH11231.

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory addresses the world’s most urgent scientific challenges by advancing sustainable energy, protecting human health, creating new materials, and revealing the origin and fate of the universe. Founded in 1931, Berkeley Lab’s scientific expertise has been recognized with 13 Nobel prizes. The University of California manages Berkeley Lab for the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Science.

The Resource Planning Portal is a web-based tool that allows users to:

  1. Input electric utility planning information in a consistent format
  2. Benchmark planning assumptions across jurisdictions
  3. Output results in a standardized format for deeper analysis.

Standardized Data Entry

The Resource Planning Portal standardizes the collection of long-term planning information including the following assumptions:
  • Existing electricity generation and contracts;
  • Planned electricity generation and retirements;
  • Load forecasts with and without the effects of Demand-side Management (DSM) activities;
  • Fuel prices;
  • Greenhouse gas emission cost adders and other environmental assumptions; and
  • Information about other planned electricity and energy-related infrastructure.

Compare Long-term Electric Utility Planning Assumptions

The Resource Planning Portal gives users instant access to long-term planning information for dozens of load serving entities (LSEs) across the Western Electricity Coordinating Council’s territory. Users have the ability to conduct queries of information contained in the resource planning database, compare planning assumptions across LSEs, and download results in a easily-accessible format.
