Integrated Resource Plan

Thoughtfully integrating a new, diverse mix of generation sources while maintaining the availability of our existing energy centers through retirement is essential for a reliable, resilient and affordable clean energy future.

Leading the Energy Transition

Ameren is leading the transition to a resilient, clean energy future. As energy demand and extreme weather threats increase, strengthening the energy grid is more important than ever. A stronger, cleaner and more modern energy grid will ensure we can meet today’s challenges and better anticipate those of tomorrow

Ameren Missouri's plan ensures energy reliability for Missourians.

Highlights include:

  • Targets net-zero carbon emissions by 2045 while meeting customers’ rising needs and expectations for reliable, affordable and clean energy sources.
  • Includes balanced mix of energy sources to support continued reliability even under extreme weather conditions.
  • Designed to meet customers' needs in an increasingly electrified future.
  • Provides flexibility to adjust to changes in policy and market conditions and benefits from developing clean energy technologies.
  • Supports customers in achieving their own clean energy targets; facilitates decarbonization and electrification of the broader economy.

Targeting Net-Zero Carbon Emissions by 2045

Ameren's companywide goal of net-zero carbon emissions by 2045 is science based and consistent with the objectives of the Paris Agreement and limiting global temperature rise to 1.5 degrees Celsius. This goal encompasses both Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions, including other greenhouse gas emissions of methane, nitrous oxide and sulfur hexafluoride. This goal is dependent on a variety of factors, including cost-effective advancements in innovative clean energy technologies as well as constructive federal and state energy and economic policies. Interim targets include reducing carbon emissions 60% by 2030 and 85% by 2040, in each case based on 2005 levels.

Bar chart of carb emissions reduction between 2005 and 2045 showing a reduction of metric tones of carbon dioxide emissions going to net zero by 2045. 2021-2023 shows a 37% reduction, 2030 shows a projected 60% reduction, 2040 shows a projected 85% reduction.
