23 CURRENT WORK EISPC and EIPC Electric and Natural Gas Studies and Whitepapers

24 EIPC Electric and Natural Gas Participating PAs Analysis Target Areas 1. Baseline Assessment 2. Evaluation of natural gas system (5 – 10 year planning horizon) 3. Identify contingencies that affect reliability 4. Review operational and planning issues of dual fuel capability generation Information provided by EIPC

25 EISPC Electric and Natural Gas Short and long-term operational, contractual and Planning concerns Understand and Catalogue With Argonne National Lab on the energy zones mapping tool Explore Collaborative Opportunities Using the 3 transmission build-outs developed in EIPC Phase 1 Develop 20 year analysis from industry on current and potential infrastructure; develop an analysis for Collect and analyze information upon completion of above Identify data needs Review existing state-of-the-art planning tools available and evaluate feasibility Evaluate Co-Optimization

26 EISPC Electric and Natural Gas including economic implications of the various futures and infrastructure build-outs Assess reliability metrics to assess natural gas and electric infrastructure requirements Document other efforts Both operational and definitional differences that will have to be considered Detail significant differences That affect new infrastructure and offer solutions Review Siting Requirements that would be beneficial to stakeholders and interested parties Recommend Future Analysis including a glossary of terms, bibliography, maps and other graphics Provide supporting documents

27 Comparison and Contrast EISPCEIPC Long-Term: 20 year planning horizon Analysis of electric and natural gas infrastructure requirements Short-term: year planning horizon Evaluate interaction between the infrastructures from a planning perspective Determine if there is sufficient infrastructure to support the proposed increase in natural gas power production

28 EISPC’s Role in EIPC Study Collaborate on respective electric and natural gas studies Offer data inputs and modeling suggestions independent from SSC Participate in the Stakeholder Steering Committee (SSC) EISPC holds 11 of 32 representatives 3 gas experts added to SSC for this study Regional stakeholder groups from each participating PPA March 2015: Stakeholder input on draft report Collaborate on respective electric and natural gas studies Offer data inputs and modeling suggestions independent from SSC Participate in the Stakeholder Steering Committee (SSC) EISPC holds 11 of 32 representatives 3 gas experts added to SSC for this study Regional stakeholder groups from each participating PPA March 2015: Stakeholder input on draft report

29 FUTURE OUTLOOK The Path Going Forward: Post DOE Funding (on going discussion)

30 Background: Timeline Risk Analysis Topic Approval for last round of studies and whitepapers Using EZ Mapping Tool, load forecasting, applying co-optimization, data mining Review and approval for proposed organizational structure, role and responsibilities of funding strategy for EISPC.2 October 28 – 29, 2013

31 Background: Timeline Review transmission Planning Primer Update and discussion on on-going studies and whitepapers Update on EISPC.2 March 13-14, 2014 (Tentative) Review of final reports of consultants EISPC final report review and approval Status report on EISPC.2 May 15-16, 2014 (tentative)
