Subject: Preliminary Input – Fuel Security Analysis
NESCOE appreciates ISO New England’s (ISO-NE) efforts to analyze the region’s future fuel-security risk through its Operational Fuel Security Analysis (the Analysis). In response to ISO-NE’s inviting states and stakeholders to submit comments on the Analysis and requests for study assumptions, NESCOE provides this request for certain revised study assumptions. We appreciate the opportunity to provide further comments at a later date as appropriate.
One of the Analysis’s “key takeaways” is that the future power system may be constrained in its ability to meet electricity demand and maintain reliability without some degree of emergency actions. NESCOE requests that ISO-NE analyze this identified risk in greater detail.
