Today’s LiveWire Spotlight (Special Edition) looks at the second draft of the Cold Weather standards – whose development schedule has been accelerated as directed by NERC’s Board of Trustees in response to February’s extreme cold weather event in Texas.  They have directed the project team to submit the three industry-vetted preparedness standards to them by June, five months ahead of the original target.

Draft 2 of the Cold Weather standards and their supporting materials have been posted on the NERC website for a 25-day review period and concurrent poll.  Comments must be returned, and ballots submitted to the project team by April 26, 2021.
