Board of Trustees Adopts Nine Standards Projects, Approves Changes to Rules of Procedure
ATLANTA – At its quarterly board meeting in Atlanta on November 13, the North American Electric Reliability Corporation Board of Trustees adopted nine standards projects and the 2015–2017 Reliability Standards Development Plan and approved changes to the Rules of Procedure in support of the Risk-Based Registration initiative. Ken Quesnelle, chair of the Canadian Association of Members of Public Utility Tribunals (CAMPUT), and Kim Greene, executive vice president and chief operating officer of Southern Company, made the opening remarks.
Gerry Cauley, president and chief executive officer at NERC, thanked industry for their collaboration on recent assessments, including the polar vortex report and the preliminary review of the Clean Power Plan.
“With such sweeping changes in the resource mix as proposed in the rule, substantial technical analysis is needed to demonstrate reliability and security can be maintained,” Cauley said. “Industry participants, states and Regions must work together vigorously on proposals and plans and work in parallel with NERC to assess reliability impacts based on more concrete options. We must continue to work together.”
