Energy Storage in Integrated Resource Plans (IRPs) documents a review of how IRPs treated energy storage, particularly batteries and pumped storage hydro storage. The review examined IRPs available in fall 2017 and winter/early spring 2018, examining whether IRPs included storage at all, how many of the services provided by storage were included, the costs assumed for storage, and other factors. This report summarizes the results of the review.
