Statement on FERC February Open Meeting

WASHINGTON, D.C. – At its monthly open meeting, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) issued an order approving NERC’s proposed Reliability Standards (EOP-011-3 and EOP-012-1) that NERC submitted in October 2022 for the reliable operation of the bulk power system during cold weather conditions. The standards create a more comprehensive framework of requirements addressin​g generator preparedness for cold weather operations, building on the first round of cold weather Reliability Standards approved by FERC in 2021. In addition, FERC directed further enhancements to EOP-012-1 and a plan on how NERC will collect and assess data to periodically monitor the implementation of the new requirements. NERC appreciates FERC’s focus on reliability matters and will continue to work toward assuring the reliability and security of the North American bulk power system.​​
