Today’s LiveWire Spotlight is the first of four Articles examining the testimony from FERC’s July 31 Technical Conference. Panel 1 asked to assess the impact of the structural and procedural changes executed by NERC and the Regional Entities in the last year and identify further steps needed to best assure reliability.

After assessing the Panel I discussion, FERC will decide how they will deal with the changing ERO Enterprise, Standards, and Reliability. Most likely they will allow efficiency efforts to continue as long as reliability performance indications stay in tolerance.
