Today’s LiveWire Spotlight looks at two Standards Authorization Requests (SARs) which propose to update the NERC standards framework to address deficiencies in the historical analyses of fuel and energy availability.  Each SAR is time-horizon specific (Operations and long-term) and focuses on system variability as natural gas/renewables replace coal and nuclear.

The initial drafts of the Standards Authorization Requests: Energy Assessments with Energy–Constrained Resources (in the Operations and Planning Time Horizons) have been posted for a 30-day review.  Your feedback is due back to the project team by July 21, 2022.
