Today’s LiveWire Spotlight looks at NERC’s eleventh filing to FERC summarizing the latest status of open Commission rulings requiring the ERO to take action related to BES reliability – and to identify those that closed during the year. The report categorizes one directive as “closed” within the last twelve months. Two were added during the year; leaving ten outstanding as of March 31, 2021
FERC activity continues at a low steady pace as the backlog of directives has been mostly eliminated. More are expected to address emerging risks in the areas of cyber security, the transition to renewables, extreme weather planning, and electromagnetic pulses (EMP).
