Today’s LiveWire Spotlight looks at NERC’s plan to address natural gas system disruptions – which builds on the findings and recommendations from a 2017 NERC investigation into the topic. The Planning Committee will develop guidelines and tools to address the concern that interdependencies between the gas and electricity infrastructures are growing – and propose reliability requirements if necessary.

NERC’s Board of Trustees (BOT) approved the plan to address natural gas system disruptions at its November meeting in Atlanta. Work on the Reliability Guide will begin after a Gas-Electricity Interoperability Task Force is assembled.
