NERC Submits Comments on Climate Change, Extreme Weather, and Electric System Reliability

On April 15, 2021, in Docket No. AD21-13-000, NERC submitted comments in response to the Supplemental Notice of Technical Conference Inviting Comments issued on March 15, 2021 in the Climate Change, Extreme Weather, and Electric System Reliability technical conference proceeding. NERC’s comments discuss: (1) NERC’s work, through its reliability assessments, to assess electric system risks due to extreme weather thorough the lens of the rapidly changing resource mix, (2) considerations specific to the increasing reliance on natural gas as a fuel source, (3) current efforts underway at NERC to revise the Reliability Standards to address the risks posed by cold weather specifically, and consider other Reliability Standards enhancements to address extreme weather more generally.
