Today’s LiveWire Spotlight describes the second annual report concerning the implementation of the rulings issued by the Commission requiring the ERO to develop or modify its base of reliability Standards. NERC has confirmed that over half (58%) of all 721 directives that have been issued by FERC since 2007 are fulfilled – 118 in 2011 alone.

NERC’s progress in executing the outstanding FERC directives has led to a reduction in direct interventions by the Commission since 2010. However, the ERO will be challenged in 2012 to deliver some pressing, but very contentious Standards.
