The latest resilience news from around the world

NERC, the North American Electric Reliability Corporation, has issued its 2023 Summer Reliability Assessment, which warns that two-thirds of North America is at risk of energy shortfalls this summer during periods of extreme demand.

NERC says that while there are no high-risk areas in this year’s assessment, the number of areas identified as being at elevated risk has increased.

The assessment finds that if summer temperatures spike, seven areas - the US West, SPP and MISO, ERCOT, SERC Central, New England and Ontario - may face supply shortages during higher demand levels.
