Today’s LiveWire Spotlight looks at the full day conference held in Washington DC held earlier this month to assess the state of BES reliability, the transition to risk-based compliance, and the changing structure of the electric system. It was led by FERC Commissioners with executive-level presenters from NERC, the Regions, PUCs, Canadian Authorities, industry consortia, ISOs, and the EPA.

Although FERC acknowledged great progress in the compliance process, the Commissioners conveyed a sense of urgency to accelerate the improvement cycle so that more can be accomplished – without impacting user rates.
