Today’s LiveWire Spotlight examines the latest three-year plan submitted by NERC to FERC and the Canadian Provincial Authorities mapping out the standards development activity they expect to process in 2019 and beyond. The projects addressing FERC directives are prioritized as the highest, followed by those proposed by stakeholders. Steady-state and efficiency initiatives are the least urgent.

The 2019-2021 Reliability Standards Development Plan has been submitted to FERC in an informational filing. Unless directed otherwise by the Commission, it will serve as the ERO’s implementation roadmap starting in January.
