NERC Publishes 2021 Annual Report

​WASHINGTON, D.C. – The past year at NERC was defined by transformation as highlighted in NERC’s 2021 Annual Report. Both the Electric Reliability Organization (ERO) Enterprise and the grid are undergoing changes. In 2021, the ERO Enterprise faced an ongoing pandemic, extreme weather events and security risks against the backdrop of an evolving grid. The report uses NERCs 2021 focus areas to highlight the largest efforts undertaken over the course of the year:

  • Expanding Risk-Based Focus in Standards, Compliance Monitoring, and Enforcement
  • Assessing and Catalyzing Steps to Mitigate Known and Emerging Risks to Reliability and Security
  • Building a Strong E-ISAC-Based Security Capability
  • Strengthening Engagement across the Reliability and Security Ecosystem in North America
  • Capturing Effectiveness, Efficiency, and Continuous Improvement Opportunities

“These are just a few of the highlights of many, and I encourage you to read NERCs 2021 Annual Report with pride in what we have achieved in such a short time, said Jim Robb, NERCs president and CEO, in his CEO Letter. “The ERO Enterprise is strongly committed to remaining aware of the challenges that our industry faces while keeping our eye on the reliability, resilience and security of the grid — nearly 400 million North Americans are depending on us.
