Today’s LiveWire Spotlight examines FERC Docket RD16-1000, which approves MOD-031-2 without comment, protest, or further intervention. The modified NERC standard addresses directives that were issued last year by FERC to clarify the handling of demand and energy data collected for seasonal and long-term performance studies.

MOD-031-2 will replace MOD-031-1 on October 1, 2016 – a mere three months after v1 becomes effective. During that time frame, Clients have to adjust their data collection and submission procedures to comply with the appropriate standard.
