Featured Projects

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)

EES Consulting has prepared Integrated Resource Plans (IRP) for ML&P since 2002 to assist ML&P with the evaluation of capital spending throughout ML&P, covering transmission and distribution, generation, SCADA systems, use of dual fuels, and other related areas.  To evaluate the alternatives available to ML&P for future generation, the IRP was developed as a tool for examining the economic, engineering and other attributes associated with various options.
