... electric power system. To support its information gathering, the committee convened a workshop on February 3, 2020, titled "Models to Inform Planning for the Future of Electric Power in the United States." Speakers and participants from industry, government, and academia discussed available models for long-term transmission and distribution planning, as well as the broader context of how these models are used and future opportunities and needs.

... MODELING AN INCREASINGLY COMPLEX LANDSCAPE A pervasive challenge to modeling in the electric power system is the enormous number of variables involved. Modeling electric power systems can require accounting for a wide range of power sources, local geographies, and climate considerations; multiple and overlapping jurisdictions, such as federal, state, or local governments; multiple stakeholder interests, such as producers, customers, and regulators; and the vast uncertainties endemic to system operation, such as policy changes and unexpected outages.

... While it is difficult to model extreme and unpredictable events, such events do happen, and improving models to account for these events can help planners build more resilience into the nation's critical electric power systems. In addition, several participants noted the importance of keeping models flexible, where possible, in order to extend their use across different policy scenarios, market changes, or technologies, especially in light of the rapid pace of change in the electric power system.
