Integrated Electricity Resource Planning

Overview

The book provides an updated coverage of key topics involved in integrated resource planning (IRP), also called least-cost planning. IRP in comparison with conventional power can provide the same energy services at a lower societal cost and with reduced environmental impacts. The history and basics of IRP is presented. The link between IRP and the environment is characterized in terms of impacts and cost-effectiveness. The book also features detailed chapters on IRP modelling, energy-efficient technologies, and ...
