John Moura is the Director of Reliability Assessment and System Analysis for the North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC), where he joined in 2008. John leads the Electric Reliability Organization’s efforts to independently assess and report on the overall reliability, adequacy, and associated risks of the interconnected North American bulk power system. John leads the development of NERC’s annual long-term and seasonal reliability assessments, as well as NERC’s efforts in evaluating reliability impacts of potential environmental regulations, high-levels of variable generation, and an increasing dependence on natural gas. He is the co-author of numerous NERC special reports and several technical publications. In addition, John is actively engaged in multiple groups and committees across North America focused on the power system risk and vulnerability analyses, loss of load studies, probabilistic resource adequacy modeling, and interconnection-wide power system modeling. John earned his bachelor degree from Rutgers University.
