The recognized need to build a reliable grid stems from the NERC Reliability Standards. These outline the need to maintain grid reliability (meet demand) and grid security (ensure the capacity to resist unforeseen adversity). In recent years, the concepts of reliability and resiliency are becoming increasingly intertwined.
