Today’s LiveWire Spotlight evaluates the Standards Authorization Request (SAR) for Project 2020-01, which proposes to modify MOD-032-1 to include collection and reporting requirements for distributed energy resource (DER) modeling data.  The updates looks for DPs to deliver the data needed to simulate the impact of distribution-side renewables on BES performance – including aggregations of rooftop solar installations.

The Standards Authorization Request (SAR) for Project 2020-01 has been posted on the NERC website for a 30-day review by industry stakeholders.  Comments and suggestions must be returned to the SAR Development Team by April 24, 2020.
