Today’s LiveWire Spotlight looks at a draft NERC Reliability Guideline advising resource owners, system operators, and grid planners on how they should deploy, configure, and model Battery Energy Storage Systems (BESS).  The ERO sees a massive surge in BESS installations and interconnection requests, and looks to assure that they are best positioned to reduce variability and deliver BES reliability services.

The initial draft of NERC’s Reliability Guideline on Battery Energy Storage Systems Modeling has been posted for a 45-day review.  Comments must be returned to Ryan.Quint@nerc.net by February 1, 2021.
