The Reliability Committee (RC) is a standing technical committee of the New England Power Pool (NEPOOL). As one of NEPOOL’s principal committees, the RC advises the Participants Committee and ISO New England on the design and oversight of reliability standards for the New England power system. The RC considers matters such as:
- Short-term and long-term load forecasts for use in ISO studies and system operations and to meet regulatory requirements
- The collection and exchange of system data and future plans related to reliability for use in ISO planning and to meet regulatory requirements
- Standards and procedures to facilitate and ensure the reliable and efficient operation of the New England power system
- Proposed plans for supply and demand-side resources, transmission, and interconnections
- Procedures for dispatch infrastructure (for example, voice and data communications protocols)
- Installed Capacity Requirements and ISO determinations regarding capacity resources submitting de-list bids
For more on the RC’s role and operation, see the Participants Agreement and the Second Restated NEPOOL Agreement.
