Featured Projects

Kootenai Electric Cooperative

EES Consulting prepared KEC’s 2007 Resource Plan.  KEC needed to meet the electric power needs of its members with a reliable supply of power delivered in the most cost-effective manner.  This 2007 Plan was an evaluation of resource alternatives that could be deployed to meet KEC’s load.  KEC embarked on a Resource Plan process to study alternative sources of supply that could best serve its customers’ needs for the period 2012-2031.

Los Angeles County Aliso Canyon

The County of Los Angeles asked EES Consulting to evaluate alternatives to mitigate the need to withdraw natural gas from the Aliso Canyon storage facility. The facility was used to supply gas during peak winter usage as well as to supply natural gas-fired generators during peak summer demand, but it was shut down after a massive leak released more than 100,000 metric tons of methane. EES found that measures put in place by utilities in Southern California to maintain system reliability without utilizing Aliso Canyon were working, and that resuming natural gas injections was unnecessary in the near term. In the longer term, the acquisition of demand response, energy storage, and energy efficiency could effectively displace the need for Aliso Canyon. EES also provided a series of recommendations to improve the implementation of the mitigation measures. (Image:Earthworks)
