A new report from the North American Electric Reliability Corporation shows extensive areas of the U.S. are at risk of energy shortages during high-temperature events this summer.

A new report is getting a lot of attention from the energy industry and the wider public, and rightfully so, as it warns that two-thirds of the country is at elevated risk of reliability problems if this summer's temperatures spike to extreme levels—including California, the Southwest and the Northwest.

The 2023 Summer Reliability Assessment from the North American Electric Reliability Corporation follows years of warnings on grid reliability from the organization as baseload coal and gas plants retire even as extreme weather, drought and wildfires, and other factors are pushing the grid to the edge.
