Today’s LiveWire Spotlight examines EOP-011-1 Draft 3, which combines all energy, load shedding, and emergency operations requirements into a single enforceable NERC standard. It clearly separates the responsibilities of Balancing Authorities and Transmission Operators in the development and execution of emergency plans – a major weakness in the existing standards.

EOP-011-1 Draft 3 has been posted on the NERC website for a 45 day formal industry stakeholder review and concurrent ballot. Comments must be submitted to the drafting team and votes placed by October 20, 2014.
