At MRO, our values are embodied in our WHY–our vision, mission and core principles–those things that motivate us to become experts in our field and provide exemplary service and value to a variety of stakeholders that use, own, operate, or regulate the North American power grid.
MRO is committed to its mission, which is ‘to identify, prioritize and assure effective and efficient mitigation of risks to the reliability and security of the North American bulk power system by promoting Highly Effective Reliability Organizations® (HEROs).
The extraordinary evolution of the power grid presents new challenges and opportunities for reliability, resilience, and security. Navigating these challenges requires us to lean into past experience—what we have done well and what could be improved— assess the current landscape, and envision where (and who) we want to be in the future.
This assessment reflects MRO’s ongoing efforts to ensure the region is properly focused on monitoring and mitigating the greatest risks to reliability and security of the bulk power system within MRO’s footprint.
Midwest Reliability Organization (or MRO) is dedicated to its vision of a highly reliable and secure North American bulk power system. Our mission is to identify, prioritize and assure effective and efficient mitigation of risks to the reliability and security of the North American bulk power system by promoting Highly Effective Reliability Organizations® (HEROs).
We use the theory and principles of high reliability organizations (HROs) as a framework for ensuring reliable operations. HRO’s are organizations that have succeeded in avoiding catastrophes in environments where accidents can be expected due to complexity, interdependence, and risk. Over time, HRO theory has evolved and provides guidance for modern safety program design and is foundational to many industries seeking high reliability in critical functions. MRO has translated this theory for application to reliable operations of the bulk power system because high standards of operational excellence support our vision and mission.
