Status
A final ballot for BAL-002-2 – Disturbance Control Standard Contingency Reserve for Recovery from a Balancing Contingency Event concluded 8 p.m. Eastern, Thursday, October 8, 2015. The voting results can be accessed via the links below. The standard will be submitted to the Board of Trustees for adoption and then filed with the appropriate regulatory authorities.

BAL-002-2 was approved by FERC in an order issued January 19, 2017. In that order, FERC directed changes to the Violation Risk Factors for some requirements. The changes are posted to this page for Board of Trustees review.


Purpose/Industry Need
The purpose of this project is to ensure that Balancing Authorities take actions to maintain interconnection frequency with each Balancing Authority contributing its fair share to frequency control.  

This project is intended to address the following:

 
- FERC Final Rule “Mandatory Reliability Standards for the Bulk-Power System, FERC Order 693” on the NERC standards BAL-002.  
 - Issues raised by stakeholders and compliance teams related to BAL-001-0.1a Real Power Balancing Control Performance and BAL-002-1 Disturbance Control Performance.  
 - To ensure that when finalized, the standards associated with this project conform to the latest versions of NERC’s Reliability Standards Development Procedure.

Background
The NERC Standards Committee approved the merger of Project 2007-05 Balancing Authority Controls and Project 2007-18 Reliability-based Control as Project 2010-14 Balancing Authority Reliability-based Controls on July 28, 2010.  The NERC Standards Committee also approved the separation of Project 2010-14 Balancing Authority Reliability-based Controls into two phases and moving Phase 1 (Project 2010-14.1 Balancing Authority Reliability-based Controls - Reserves) into formal standards development on July 13, 2011.  The Project 2010-14.1 Phase 1 proposes revisions to BAL-001-0.1a Real Power Balancing Control Performance and BAL-002-1 Disturbance Control Performance.  The project also initially proposed two new standards, BAL-012-1 Operating Reserve Policy and BAL-013-1 Large Loss of Load Performance.  BAL-012-1 was posted for a 45-day formal comment period with an initial ballot and non-binding poll through January 14, 2013.  The initial ballot failed to achieve the required two-thirds industry approval.  Based on industry comments received during this ballot period, the drafting team elected to cease any further development of the proposed BAL-012-1 standard.  This project will address the FERC Order 693 Directive for development of a continent-wide Contingency Reserve standard.

The standards within Project 2010-14.1 are an important part of the ERO's strategic goal to develop technically sufficient standards with requirements that provide clear and unambiguous performance expectations and reliability benefits.
