LiveWire Spotlight on NERC’s 2022 Situational Awareness WebinarsToday’s LiveWire Spotlight examines NERC’s latest annual assembly assessing the role of Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) and Energy Management Systems (EMS) in BES reliability.  The theme in 2022 was Post Pandemic – New Normal in EMS.  This year’s event (the tenth since its inception in 2013) was held online in three two-hour sessions held over a one-month time frame. 

NERC’s 2022 Situational Awareness Webinars provided some encouraging developments in the effort to assure platform availability, but the challenges facing the industry cannot be overstated.  Clients should take heed – as EMS performance expectations are only growing.
