Today’s LiveWire Spotlight looks at NERC’s sixth annual filing reporting the disposition of every ruling ever issued by the Commission related to Bulk Electric System reliability. In it, NERC concludes that 773 directives issued by FERC since 2007 have been addressed – 94.4% of the total. The remaining 46 will be completed by mid-2017.

FERC’s activity levels will remain low unless new risks emerge – a distinct possibility with the rapid evolution in human-created threats (cyber, physical, bio-terror). More directives may result as over 20 new standards are implemented in 2016.
