FERC Issues Modified Agenda for February 8 Technical Conference on Reliability Priorities

On December 16, 2010, in Docket No. AD11-6, FERC issued a notice announcing a technical conference to be held on February 8, 2011, to discuss priorities for addressing risks to the reliability of the bulk-power system.  In a statement released the same day, Commissioner Norris discussed his expectations of “a good dialogue about how priorities are set and what help the Commission can give in setting those priorities” and his hopes of striking the right balance between “issu[ing] directives when necessary to ensure reliability” versus “set[ting] back the work of standard development teams every time the Commission issues a new order.” To view the agenda for the technical conference, as modified on February 2, click here.
