NERC Submits Modified Reliability Standard MOD-031-2 for Commission Approval

On November 13, 2015 NERC submitted a petition seeking FERC approval of Reliability Standard MOD-031-2 – Demand and Energy Data.  This modified Reliability Standard improves upon MOD-31-1 as required by Order 804, issued on February 19, 2015.  Reliability Standard MOD-031-2 modifies the requirements of the previous Reliability Standard to clarify that Planning Authorities and Balancing Authorities must provide Demand and energy data to their Regional Entity, upon request, whether the Planning Authority or Balancing Authority collected that data pursuant to Reliability Standard MOD-031 or through alternative mechanisms.  It also provides that where obligations to provide that data would conflict with the entity’s confidentiality, regulatory, or security requirements, the entity can withhold the data and should provide written notice that it will not be producing the data and a justification for its withholding.
