- ERO Enterprise Further Extends Self-Logging Program Expansion and Deferment of On-Site Activities through Mid-2021
In May, the ERO Enterprise released guidance that provided additional regulatory relief related to registered entities’ coronavirus response and temporarily expanded the Self-Logging Program and deferred on-site activities. Due to the ongoing pandemic, the ERO Enterprise is extending this expansion through June 30, 2021, to allow all registered entities to self-log instances of potential noncompliance with minimal or moderate risk related to their coronavirus response.

- SAVE THE DATE: Thursday, February 18, 2021 at 1:00pm ET, IEEE Webcast on IEEE P2800, Draft Standard for Interconnection and Interoperability of Inverter-Based Resources Interconnecting with Associated Transmission and Sub-Transmission Electric Power Systems.
This joint webcast will provide an update on the IEEE SA Ballot of the IEEE P2800, Draft Standard for Interconnection and Interoperability of Inverter-Based Resources (IBRs) Interconnecting with Associated Transmission and Sub-Transmission Electric Power Systems. The technical minimum requirements specified in P2800 for the interconnection of large-scale, transmission- and sub-transmission-connected inverter-based resources like wind, solar, energy storage are important elements in the North American and international framework to maintain the reliability of the bulk power system with increasing amounts of IBRs, including those radially connected via VSC-HVDC facilities to the grid. The NAGF will provide membership additional information as it becomes available.
