The Presidential Memorandum establishing the QER directed the QER Task Force to conduct analysis and modeling to support QER recommendations and actions. As part of this effort, the Office of Energy Policy and Systems Analysis (EPSA) commissioned an extensive suite of analyses, focusing on energy TS&D infrastructures. Linked below are the major commissioned analyses used to support the findings and recommendations within the QER, including those associated with QER Technical Workshops.
Additional reports and technical workshops will be posted here in the days ahead. Check back for new and updated documents.
