Improved Summer Outlook due to Solar and Storage additions; Elevated Risk for Off-Peak Periods Persist

​WASHINGTON, D.C. – NERC’​s 2024 Summer Reliability Assessment (SRA) finds that a large part of North America remains at risk of supply shortfalls, while other areas show reduced risk due to resource additions. Expected wide-area heat events that affect generation, wind output or transmission systems coupled with demand growth in some areas are contributing to adequacy risks for resources and transmission. All areas are assessed to have adequa​te supply for normal peak load due, in large part, to a record 25 GW of additional solar capacity being added since last year. However, energy risks are growing in several areas when solar, wind and hydro output are low.
