Grid Shows Improved Resilience, Decreased Protection Systems Misoperations and Advanced Risk Management

ATLANTA — Changes to the reliability ecosystem — driven by a shift in the resource mix, the retirement of gas, coal and nuclear plants in concert with the introduction of renewable energy resources and the advent of new technology — have required NERC to adapt, implementing a risk-based approach toward significant threats to the reliability of the North American grid.

In its role as the Electric Reliability Organization, NERC identifies and quantifies current and emerging reliability issues that enable the ERO to provide risk-informed recommendations for industry to pursue improved reliability performance. The State of Reliability 2018 report looks back over the previous year, analyzing historical risks to the bulk power system with a view toward solving future problems.
