  • The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) is seeking comments on whether to reform its rules and procedures to ensure that variable energy resources (VERs) are integrated into the nation’s power grid in a manner that is efficient, nondiscriminatory and conducive to reliability. In its Notice of Inquiry (NOI) issued on January 21, 2010 (FERC Docket No. RM10-11-000), FERC stated that it is taking a “fresh look” at its current policies and practices to ensure that they appropriately accommodate the unique challenges posed by integrating the increasing supply of VERs.
