ATLANTA – The bulk power system is undergoing a significant transformation in its generation resource mix, which alters the operating characteristics and constraints of the grid. NERC conducted a stress-test scenario to evaluate the impact of accelerated generation retirements on resource adequacy, transmission adequacy and bulk power system plans. Further, this scenario provides insights that could otherwise be overlooked if perspectives are limited to only currently confirmed retirements. The scenario affirmed that risk-informed planning and existing tools can assure continued reliability of the grid as the generation resource mix undergoes this evolutionary change.
