Today’s LiveWire Spotlight addresses the latest meeting of the RISC Committee – the fourth since the committee was instated to assess progress on NERC’s reliability initiatives and evaluate the urgency of pending issues. The committee collects a number of existing high-priority initiatives under its organizational umbrella, identifying the ties to standards development and taking other steps to ensure success.

The Reliability Issues Steering Committee has begun to take on more work since its inception four months ago. It remains to be seen if the RISC can effectively address the numerous and complex issues facing NERC in 2013.
