Today’s LiveWire Spotlight examines six NERC’s Lessons Learned posted over the the last two months alerting Registered Entities of issues that may pose a risk to their facilities. Each addresses a failure mechanism that may not result in a violation under the existing body of NERC standards – but will in the near future.

Once the standards in question take effect, Clients should expect an upsurge in reliability violations while the industry adjusts to them. If outages continue to result from these types of failures, FERC may consider further regulation.
