Today’s LiveWire Spotlight examines the initial drafts of EOP-011-3 and EOP-012-1, the extreme cold weather grid operations standards.  They represent the first attempt by the Standards Drafting Team for Project 2021-07 to enact four of the twenty-eight recommendations issued by a joint FERC, NERC, and Regional Entity team investigating the 2021 extreme cold weather event in Texas.

Draft 1 of the Extreme Cold Weather standards and their supporting materials have been posted on the NERC website for a 30-day review period and concurrent poll.  Comments must be returned and ballots submitted to the project team by June 17, 2022.
