Today’s LiveWire Spotlight is on the recent Standards Authorization Request (SAR), which will trigger the second stage of the modification to the NERC Glossary term – building on the Phase I definition. The project team expects to perform in-depth analysis of industry feedback provided in the course of the initial effort to validate the existing criteria or justify modifications.

The initial draft of the Standards Authorization Request for Phase II development of the Definition of the BES has been posted on the NERC website for a 30 day review. Comments must be returned to the project team by 2/3/12.
