DATASHEET: Study Examines Power Grid Reliability Risks

December 3, 2021

The NYISO is responsible for planning the power system to prepare for future reliability risks. 

Our Comprehensive Reliability Plan (CRP) evaluates the reliability of New York’s grid through 2030 and concludes that while the state’s bulk electric system is expected to meet reliability requirements, risks to reliability and resilience remain.

The latest study demonstrates that our reliability margins are thinning to concerning levels beginning in 2023. Power grid reliability risks are examined in this datasheet.

“We have to move carefully with the grid in transition in order to maintain reliability and avoid the kind of problems we’ve seen in other parts of the U.S.,” said Zach G. Smith, VP of System & Resource Planning.
