Today’s LiveWire Spotlight evaluates the final version of the three year work plan that NERC’s Standards Committee expects to process during Calendar Year 2016 and beyond. The ERO expects most standards activity in 2016-2018 will be “steady state” – driven by regular expert team evaluations of the effectiveness and clarity of every Reliability Standard.

The 2016-2018 Reliability Standards Development Plan has been submitted to FERC in an informational filing. Unless directed otherwise by the Commission, it will serve as the ERO’s implementation roadmap for the remainder of the year.
