Today’s LiveWire Spotlight is on FERC Order 764-A – which clarifies the Commission’s ruling in mid-2012 for BES owners and operators to integrate variable energy resources into their systems and processes. It will require providers to offer intra-hour transmission scheduling at 15 minute intervals to accommodate rapid changes in resource output.

The Commission has extended Order 764-A’s effective date to November 12, 2013. Clients who own or operate variable energy resources – or provide related services – have until this date to comply with all aspects of the ruling.
