NERC Focuses on Resources, Agility to Address Emerging Risks; Previews Summer Assessment, State of Reliability

ARLINGTON, VA – Cold weather standards, emerging risks, the summer reliability outlook and a review of 2021 reliability performance were topics of focus at NERC’​s quarterly Board of Trustees meeting. The meeting was changed to an all-virtual format out of an abundance of caution to safeguard the health of participants after a member of the NERC team tested positive for COVID-19 earlier in the week.

Board Chair Ken DeFontes welcomed virtual attendees, apologizing for any inconvenience caused by the change of meeting format.

​“There is much value in us being together in person, but even as the pandemic enters a new phase we must be prepared to respond responsibly to unexpected circumstances, DeFontes said. “The plan is to hold the August MRC/Board meetings in person in Vancouver, Canada, as scheduled, but we are exploring different options in how that may occur.
