Performance Analysis reviews current and historical reliability trends and metrics to objectively analyze reliability performance, risks, and emerging issues. The ERO-wide analysis is published in the annual NERC State of Reliability report. Texas RE publishes an annual Assessment of Reliability Performance report for the ERCOT region to specifically provide analysis and feedback on risks and reliability trends within the region. Texas RE also coordinates the collection of regional stakeholder data used in these analysesis, primarily through NERC’s reliability data systems, as described below.
Performance Analysis Reports
NERC State of Reliability Report
NERC State of Reliability report represents NERC’s independent view of ongoing BPS reliability
trends to impartially analyze the state of reliability based on metric information and provide an
integrated view of reliability performance. The key findings and recommendations serve as technical
input to NERC’s Reliability Standards and project prioritization, compliance process improvement, event
analysis, reliability assessment, and critical infrastructure protection.
ERCOT Region Assessment of Reliability Performance
The goals of the Assessment of Reliability Performance are to illuminate the historical and overall
BPS reliability picture, help identify risk areas, prioritize and create actionable
results for reliability improvements, and build on successes. This report represents the ongoing
effort by Texas RE to provide a view of risks to reliability based on historic performance,
integrate many ongoing efforts underway, provide analysis and feedback on risks and reliability
trends, and understand the risks impacting reliability performance.
