NERC Issues Reliability Benchmark and Metrics

On March 31, 2009, NERC provided initial reliability performance benchmarks and metrics.  The publishing of these reliability performance indicators is the work of the NERC Reliability Metrics Working Group and reflects an important part of NERC’s overall commitment to: (1) measuring reliability performance across North America – past, present, and future; (2) analyzing and benchmarking the results of those measurements; (3) identifying problems and assessing needs for improvement; (4) developing solutions to address those problems and needs; and (5) implementing solutions.  To view NERC’s current reliability benchmarks and metrics information, click here.
