On June 5, 2013, the Standards Committee approved the retirement of this project.

Purpose/Industry Need:
The purpose of this standard is to implement certain recommendations from the Resource and Transmission Adequacy Task Force (RTATF) Report and the Gas/Electricity Interdependency Task Force Report, approved by the NERC Board on June 15, 2004, related to resource adequacy.  This standard would establish a requirement for the Regions to: 1) create a metric(s) to assess resource adequacy that takes into account various factors, including, but not limited to, fuel deliverability, 2) perform resource adequacy assessments, 3) make the results of the assessments available to the industry and appropriate regulatory agencies, and 4) make the assessments and associated data available to NERC for their review.  If approved, this standard will facilitate the Energy Policy Act of 2005 mandate for the Electricity Reliability Organization (ER0) to "conduct periodic assessments of the reliability and adequacy of the bulk-power system in North America " [1] .
