Today’s LiveWire Spotlight evaluates NERC’s response to FERC’s Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NOPR) to reform ISO/RTO market rules blocking access to energy storage resource providers and distributed energy aggregators. The ERO sees no language in the Reliability Standards that restricts or discourages vendors from offering these cutting-edge services.

FERC is presently evaluating the comments submitted by NERC, the industry, and other interested parties in response to their Notice of Proposed Rulemaking. Their final ruling on energy storage marketing reform should come out around midyear.
