The Past, Present, and Future of Electricity Reliability Oversight in North America

February 28, 2006 - 12:00pm
Bldg. 90

The Energy Policy Act of 2005 directs the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) to certify an Electricity Reliability Organization (ERO) that will propose and enforce reliability standards for the bulk-power system in the United States.  This talk will discuss:  1) Electricity reliability and how it is currently managed; 2) FERC's plans for and challenges in certifying an ERO; and  3) LBNL's efforts to support these activities through the Consortium for Electric Reliability Technology Solutions.
