Today’s LiveWire Spotlight examines NERC’s latest Directives Status Report – an annual filing with FERC providing the disposition of every ruling ever issued by the Commission related to Bulk Electric System reliability. In it, the ERO announces that 798 directives issued by FERC since 2007 have been addressed – 95.9% of the total. The remaining 34 will be completed by Year End 2017

NERC’s ability to address all open directives relies on the outcome of 13 standards awaiting FERC’s review – including GOP training and coordinated Fault protection. If any are remanded, NERC’s resources will be re-focused on those priorities
