Resource Adequacy in the Western Interconnection 
Jordan White, Vice President of Strategic Engagement and Deputy General Counsel, WECC, & Victoria Ravenscroft Senior Manager, Policy and External Affairs, WECC
In 2020, WECC developed the Western Assessment of Resource Adequacy. This work complements NERC’s continent-wide work on resource adequacy but analyzes resource adequacy in the context of western conditions and challenges. WECC will share its key takeaways and recommendations from its Western Assessment, with a focus on the role of increasing variability and reliance on imports.
