This event will review the practical barriers that utilities must address to move from resource plans to action plans and propose practical solutions to meet those challenges. It will also highlight specific ways in which planners and their colleagues, who conduct outreach efforts on behalf of the utility, can do a more effective job of involving these stakeholders and intervenors in the review and approval process to achieve a better outcome at lower cost and on an expedited timetable.
Randy McAdams, partner and vertically integrated utilities practice leader at ScottMadden, and Michael Anckner, managing associate at ScottMadden, will present “Identifying and Addressing Common Challenges in the Public Arena.” During this session, ScottMadden will discuss the resource planning landscape, the range of stakeholders, potential implications and perspectives of each, the industry context, and an approach to engage stakeholders.
Mr. McAdams and Mr. Anckner will also present “Communicating Results Effectively.”
“External stakeholders play an important role in the IRP process, and their involvement is critical to its success,” said Mr. McAdams. “Identifying the proper stakeholders and developing a structured plan to engage them will ensure their input is received and incorporated into the planning process,” added Mr. Anckner.
