Happy New Year everyone! I hope everyone had a warm, happy, and restful holiday season. Now that the calendar has turned over to 2014, time is of the essence to double check your compliance status and prepare your self-certifications before the (WECC) dead-line of March 3, 2014.
This year looks to be another busy one as more changes are sure to be flowing down from FERC and NERC. One of the bigger issues on the horizon is the up-coming imposition of the new definition for the Bulk Electric System. Other big issues are the ongoing transition to version 5 of the Critical Infrastructure Protection standards and NERC’s continuing effort to optimize the Electric Reliability Organization through its Reliability Assurance Initiative.
