The 2016 Transmission Reliability R&D Reliability & Markets Peer Review included 15 presentations over 2 days on June 9 - 10, 2016 at the Embassy Suites Crystal City in Arlington, VA. Presentations are available through the links. The agenda and list of presentations are available below.

The Reliability and Markets activity of the Transmission Reliability program researches, develops, and implements electricity infrastructure and market simulations that integrate economics and engineering principles. The activity helps to ensure electric reliability, while also improving the efficiency and economics of market operations.
