  • FERC Approves Extreme Cold Weather Reliability Standards and Directs Improvements

On February 16, 2023, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) approved two new North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) Reliability Standards: EOP-011-3 (Emergency Operations) and EOP-012-01 (Extreme Cold Weather Preparedness and Operations) as a first step towards addressing the ongoing risk posed by extreme cold weather events to the Bulk-Power System.  In addition, FERC directed NERC to improve the new Reliability Standard EOP-012-1 to clarify certain language, enhance certain Standard requirements, include criteria on permissible constraints, and identify the appropriate entity that would receive the generator owners’ constraint declarations under the Standard.

  • NERC Inverter-Based Resource (IBR) Work plan Submittal to FERC

On November 17, 2022, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), issued an order directing the North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) to file a Work Plan within 90 days to address registration of Inverter-Based Resources. NERC submitted its IBR work plan to FERC on February 15, 2023 requesting expedited review and approval. The Work Plan reflects a three-phase approach to:

    • revise the NERC Rules Of Procedure to include a Generator Owner – Inverter-Based Resource (GO-IBR) registered entity function;
    • identify candidates for GO-IBR registration;
    • effectuate GO-IBR registration.

The work plan is posted on the NERC website:


  • NAGF Advisory Committee openings

The NAGF Advisory Committee (AC) is comprised of a minimum of ten (10) members that provides strategic oversight of the day-to-day NAGF activities. There are currently two (2) openings available due to AC member retirements. NAGF AC members are expected to participate in a monthly conference call/webinar and participate/support the NAGF working group(s). Estimated time commitment is 1-3 hrs/month. Serving on the NAGF AC is an excellent way to support the NAGF, help guide the direction of the organization, and provides an excellent career development opportunity.
