Today’s LiveWire Spotlight looks at NERC’s initial draft of the 2015-2017 Standards Development Plan. It establishes YE2015 as the target data for completing the initial grouping of NERC projects that were launched in response to FERC Order 693 and all directives issued subsequent to it. The plan signals a transition to “steady state”, where the base of Reliability Standards is stable and new project activity is rare.

The 2015-2017 Standards Development Plan and its supporting documents have been posted on the NERC website for a 30 day review period. Clients have until July 21, 2014 to return comments back to the drafting team.
