by ronfluegge 7. October 2017 17:50

1979 ⎯  NERC assumes responsibility for collecting and analyzing generator availability data from the Edison Electric Institute’s (EEI) Prime Movers Committee. NERC, with support from the Electric Power Institute, restructures EEI’s Equipment Availability Data Reporting System to create the Generating Availability Data System (GADS). 

1990 ⎯  Congress passes the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990. NERC uses the GADS database to provide the Energy Information Administration with a summary of forced and planned outages in the 1985−87 period. EPA uses the GADS data to set generator unit emission allocation values.
