2014 Integrated Resource Plan (IRP)

Every two years, Vectren is required to submit its Integrated Resource Plan to the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission (IURC). The Integrated Resource Plan is a 20-year forecast that outlines how Vectren could serve existing and future electric customers in a reliable and economic manner. Vectren recently filed its 2014 Integrated Resource Plan for the State of Indiana with the IURC. Below is a link to our most recent IRP, filed October 31, 2014.

Stakeholder Engagement
Prior to filing the 2014 IRP, Vectren facilitated a stakeholder engagement process, allowing interested parties to participate in the planning, as well as a review of the process before the plan was submitted to the IURC.

As part of the development of Vectren's 2014 IRP, there were three objectives for the stakeholder engagement process:
  • Listen: Understand concerns and objectives
  • Inform: Increase stakeholder understanding of the IRP process, key assumptions and the challenges facing Vectren and the electric utility industry
  • Consider: Provide a forum for productive stakeholder feedback regarding key points in the IRP development process to inform Vectren's decision making
In 2014, Vectren held three public advisory meetings, or workshops, with interested parties (stakeholders) during the development and analysis of the 2014 IRP. The advisory meetings informed stakeholders about Vectren's resource planning process, assumptions and modeling methods as well as solicited input from stakeholders regarding these topics. All meetings took place at Vectren headquarters. Below is a list of 2014 stakeholder meeting dates and topics.
  • March 20, 2014: General overview of the process and key analysis inputs
  • August 5, 2014: Projected energy forecasts, possible future scenarios, and possible risks
  • September 24, 2014: Plan review
All meetings provided an opportunity for stakeholders to ask questions, and make suggestions regarding the analysis. Additionally, Vectren responded to written questions and comments throughout the process. Meeting materials, including presentations as well as question and answers can be found in Technical Appendix A.
