Purpose:
The purpose of this workshop is for the California Energy Systems for the 21st Century (CES-21) research and development program to present its final report on the Grid Integration Flexibility Metrics and Standards project. This project uses the Strategic Energy Risk Valuation Model (SERVM) to assess the reliability and operational flexibility of California’s electric system. It is being presented to the Integrated Resource Planning (IRP) proceeding’s Modeling Advisory Group as a possible analytical tool for evaluating the reliability of system portfolios under consideration in the IRP proceeding.

Background:
CES-21 is a public-private collaborative research and development effort between Pacific Gas & Electric, Southern California Edison, San Diego Gas & Electric, and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, and authorized by Commission Resolution E-4677.

The IRP Modeling Advisory Group began discussing next steps for IRP analytics in Fall 2016 and this workshop is a continuation of that effort. The discussion will also relate to the proposal included in the May 16, 2017 IRP Staff Proposal to utilize production cost modeling to validate operational performance of the IRP portfolios submitted by load serving entities.
