The vision for the Electric Reliability Organization Enterprise, which is comprised of NERC and the eight Regional Entities, is a highly reliable and secure North American bulk power system. Our mission is to assure the effective and efficient reduction of risks to the reliability and security of the grid.

 
RELIABILITY | ACCOUNTABILITY

 Standards


NERC's Standards program ensures the reliability of the bulk power system by developing quality reliability standards in a timely manner that are effective, clear, consistent and technically sound.

 Electricity ISAC


E-ISAC gathers security information, coordinates incident management, and communicates mitigation strategies with stakeholders within the electricity subsector, across interdependent sectors, and with government partners.

 Reliability Assessment & Performance Analysis


​The Reliability Assessment and Performance Analysis program assesses, measures and investigates historic trends and future projections to improve bulk power system reliability.

 Reliability Risk Management


The ​Reliability Risk Management program's goals are to enhance reliability and serve as a learning initiative by providing timely lessons learned from system events, conditions, and trends.

 Compliance & Enforcement


The focus of NERC's Compliance & Enforcement program is to improve the reliability of the bulk power system in North America by fairly and consistently enforcing compliance with NERC standards.

 System Operator Certification and Continuing Education


Training, Education, and System Operator Certification provides training and education for staff and industry on reliability standards, the compliance monitoring and enforcement processes, and other supporting reliability functional areas. It also ensures personnel operating the bulk power system are certified to operate the system reliably.
