This paper has been prepared n the midst of a profound transition from fossil fuels to renewables to introduce gas planning, lay out the key components of a gas plan, and discuss different types of gas plans. The paper also provides specific examples of these concepts in action through state case studies. In total, this paper reviews five existing methods of gas planning, highlighting the strengths and drawbacks of each. It then makes some recommendations for states looking to create new, modern gas plans or strengthen existing plans, based on experiences and challenges with existing gas and electric planning processes.
