Today’s LiveWire Spotlight looks at Project 2012-05 (formerly the MOD A initiative), one of several projects launched by NERC in hopes of quickly reducing all outstanding FERC directives. In their first draft, the project team proposes to combine all six existing transmission system capability standards into MOD-001-2 in order to clearly separate reliability and market considerations.

The initial draft of the SAR for Project 2012-05 and the pro-forma version of MOD-001-2 have been posted for industry stakeholder review and concurrent ballot. Clients have until August 26, 2013 to return comments and vote on the postings.
