Capacity Supply Sufficient for Winter Demand; Prolonged Cold Weather, Fuel Availability among Reliability Risks

ATLANTA – NERC’s 2018/2019 Winter Reliability Assessment finds that system operators continue to focus on winter preparedness and that anticipated resources for the upcoming winter are sufficient to assure the reliability of the bulk power system across North America.

Adequate generation resources and transmission are in place in all assessment areas to keep reserve margins at or above NERC-recommended levels, the assessment finds. Additionally, winter preparedness programs continue to receive significant attention to minimize risks against cold weather-related issues.
