As the name implies, integrated energy planning involves the integration of different sectors of energy like petroleum, coal, natural gas, and renewables – normally to produce electricity, heat or transportation fuels. Integrated energy planning includes energy used for homes and the industrial consumer and has the goal of reducing CO₂ emissions. Integrated energy planning involves understanding and consideration of all the energy opportunities available, their social costs and the benefits that different combinations might provide in sustainable development. Thus, the relationships between energy, economic, environmental, and societal systems are all factors to be considered. Alternative energy must rationally be developed with a view of the life cycle, energy savings priorities, and was to continuously improve incumbent energies while developing alternatives.
