Four Interdependent Risks to BPS Reliability Identified in Reliability Risk Priorities Report

ATLANTA – NERC’s 2021 ERO Reliability Risk Priorities Report, a forward-looking view of imminent and projected risks to bulk power system (BPS) reliability, has identified four significant evolving and interdependent risks. The most significant, grid transformation, has broad implications as it can be a catalyst for additional changes, often amplifying the impact on reliability, resilience and security. The report also examines in detail the three additional risks: security; increased vulnerability due to extreme events — most recently related to weather and the pandemic; and critical infrastructure interdependencies, such as the ability to deliver natural gas to generating units supporting reliability, resilience and security of the BPS.​
