The Western Interconnection Regional Advisory Body (WIRAB) commissioned a report from INPOWERD LLC on the NERC Reliability Issues Steering Committee’s (RISC) November 2016 report on ERO Reliability Risk Priorities. The INPOWERD Report provides a summary of the NERC RISC process and highlights key reliability risk profiles for the Western Interconnection, based on the 2016 ERO report.
The NERC RISC plans to release a new draft 2017 ERO Reliability Risk Priorities Report in mid-September and a Final 2017 ERO Reliability Risk Priorities Report in November 2017. The NERC Board of Trustees will then consider the 2017 ERO Risk Priorities at its February 2018 meeting.
The WIRAB-commissioned InPOWERd report can be used to help prepare WIRAB to review the upcoming November 2017 report on ERO Reliability Risk Priorities. With this information, WIRAB can work with the WECC Member Advisory Committee (MAC) to provide strategic guidance to the WECC Board of Directors on how it should develop its strategic planning process and utilize the work of the NERC RISC in implementing that process.
