Summary:

A report funded by the Office of Electricity Delivery and Energy Reliability of the U.S. Department of Energy that helps to address the information gap regarding the actual reliability of the U.S. electric power system and on how proposed changes would affect reliability. The research analyzes up to 10 years of electricity reliability information collected from 155 U.S. electric utilities, which together account for roughly 50% of total U.S. electricity sales.
