NERC Warns Generation Resources Tight in Large Portion of North America this Winter

ATLANTA – NERC​s 2022-2023 Winter Reliability Assessment warns that a large portion of the North American bulk power system is at risk of having insufficient energy supplies during severe winter weather. NERC advises industry to be ready to implement operating plans to manage potential supply shortfalls and to ensure fuel supplies are secured, and generators and natural gas facilities are weatherized.  

The assessment finds high peak-demand projections, inadequate generator weatherization, fuel supply risks, and limited natural gas infrastructure are contributory factors to reliability risk.
