Report, NERC Special. Reliability Impacts of Climate Change Initiatives: Technology Assessment and Scenario Development . NERC. North America Electric Reliability Corporartion, 2010.Abstract

    Climate change initiatives proposed by governments and industry organizations will affect the way energy is used in North America. The aggressiveness or pace of mandates/targets affects near-term and long-term outcomes and the rate of new technology deployments. This report assesses the status and reliability effects from integrating new technologies promulgated by climate change initiatives as well as develops a framework for scenario assessment.
