Leidos to Model an Integrated Resource Plan for Burbank Water & Power
Leidos has been selected by Burbank Water & Power (BWP) to assist with the development of a 20-year integrated resource plan. Leidos will help the community-owned water and electric utility in California to prepare for the future of load growth, regulatory and energy market conditions, and generation mix.
Through this contract, Leidos will identify and discuss the current and future risks BWP is facing. The team will define appropriate modeling scenarios that encompass those risks and perform detailed electrical production cost modeling of the scenarios to quantify the effects of the risks. The final integrated resource plan is expected to be completed by this summer.
'Leidos has a proven approach to address uncertainties in utility resource planning. We will work with BWP to tailor our development of planning scenarios and portfolio modeling services to create a plan that best serves BWP's customers both now and in the future,' said Leidos Senior Vice President for Energy Solutions James Baxter.
