Today’s LiveWire Spotlight examines the February policy input provided to NERC’s Board of Trustees from the Member Representatives Committee (MRC), industry trade organizations, the ISO/RTO Council, and Regional Entities. Two topics were addressed:

1. The viability, scope, and effectiveness of the proposed enhancements to the ERO Enterprise Dashboard and ERO Performance Objectives.
The value of conducting a Special Reliability Assessment on the reliability implications of the widespread deployment of battery storage and microgrids.

2. NERC’s Board of Trustees (BOT) heard the feedback from the MRC and other groups at its February meeting in Manhattan Beach, CA. Changes to the 2019 Dashboard, Performance Objectives, or Special Assessment are not expected, but the same issues could arise in 2020.
