Board Approves 2022 Budgets, Accepts State of Reliability and RISC Reports

ATLANTA – NERC’s Board of Trustees concluded its quarterly meeting, featuring the approval of 2022 budgets, acceptance of the 2021 State of Reliability and the 2021 ERO Reliability Risk Priorities Report, review of winter preparedness, updates on standards projects and a strategic discussion with Canadian utility regulators. This was the fifth Board meeting held virtually due to the ongoing pandemic. Jim Robb, NERC’s president and chief executive officer (CEO), noted that the pandemic has forced NERC and its stakeholders to find different ways to work, collaborate and stay connected, while still remaining keenly focused on the reliability and security of the North American grid. ​


“The Northeast blackout on August 14, 2003, was the catalyst for the modern day reliability regime in North America, which serves nearly 400 million people effectively and efficiently,” Robb said. “Now, 18 years later, resilience against the pandemic is yet another challenge along with the rapidly evolving resource mix and rising security risks. Throughout this meeting, you will hear the vital activities NERC and industry are undertaking to assure a reliable and resilient grid across North America.”
