"Ameren Missouri recently released an ambitious long-term strategic plan (Integrated Resource Plan or IRP) that will significantly cut carbon emissions and invest in renewable energy resources like wind, solar and storage. The utility is following a national trend of heavily fossil fuel dependent utilities across the country setting net-zero carbon reduction targets and investing heavily in renewable energy.

Having already achieved their Paris climate target (5 years early) Ameren Missouri is raising their incremental carbon reduction goals. Previously, the 2050 carbon reduction target for the utility was an 80 percent reduction compared to 2005 levels. The 2020 IRP seeks to surpass that goal by 5 percent, 10 years sooner. The updated 2050 goal is net-zero.

If Ameren Missouri’s 2017 IRP was wading into the pool of carbon reduction, then their 2020 IRP jumps in the deep end. The 2020 IRP expands upon the commitments set in 2017 by moving up their carbon targets, investing in renewables, and retiring uneconomic coal-fired power plants sooner than previously planned."
