The Systems Analysis Advisory Committee will review the Council’s computer models and provide advice on their further development. Specifically, it will examine models used to assist in the selection of the resources to include in Council power plans. The Council is required to identify a resource plan as part of its regular review of regional electrical power requirements.
SAAC members are chosen for a high level of technical expertise or industry leadership. They represent diverse constituencies, including public and private utilities, commissions, energy consultants, and consumer agencies. Each of the four states represented on the Council have participation in the SAAC. With their participation, SAAC members will develop a deeper understanding of the methods the Council employs to arrive at resource plan recommendations and will be able to suggest changes to make the model more applicable to their own planning. As is the case with all Council advisory committee meetings, attendance is open to the general public.
