DOE SEAB Electric Reliability Task Force-2nd Meeting
According to our contacts at DOE, the second meeting went well. The group is starting to close on some basic assumptions regarding the future of the electric power industry and on a set of basic concepts/requirements for electric system reliability. In addition, the Task Force is gaining a better understanding of the differing viewpoints of NERC, Power Marketers, and DOE on how to maintain and assure reliability.
