Sufficient Resources in Place to Meet Winter Demand, Winter Assessment Finds
ATLANTA – Adequate generation and demand-side resources exist across the United States and Canada to maintain reliability for the 2015-2016 winter, the North American Electric Reliability Corporation’s winter outlook finds. The 2015-2016 Winter Reliability Assessment provides an independent North American perspective of bulk power system reliability from December 2015 through February 2016.
NERC examined key indicators related to electricity generation and demand projections. The assessment focuses on operational risks to the bulk power system. The operational risk analysis examines factors, including past generation performance and average forced outages for the entire season.
