Today’s LiveWire Spotlight is the first of four articles on FERC’s 2020 Technical Conference regarding the impact of COVID-19 on the energy industry.  Panel I’s topic was “System Operations and Planning Challenges”.   Eight panelists responded to the Commission’s questions about the steps taken to operate safely and reliably during the COVID-19 emergency and the challenges lying ahead (e.g.; hurricane season.)

FERC has posted the panel testimonies and the 2020 Technical Conference webcast on their website for further review and commentary.  Clients have until August 30, 2020 to return their feedback to the Commission on the original Panel 1 questions or the proceedings.
