Revised Public Utility Filing Requirements Electric Quarterly Reports; Notice of Electric Quarterly Reports Workshop

On April 25, 2002, the Commission issued Order No. 2001,[1] a final rule which requires public utilities to file Electric Quarterly Reports. Order 2001-C, issued December 18, 2002, instructs all public utilities to file these reports using Electric Quarterly Report Submission Software. This notice announces a workshop for EQR users to be held Monday, September 29 and Tuesday, September 30, 2003, at FERC headquarters, 888 First Street, NW., Washington, DC. The meeting will run from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Monday and from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Tuesday.

At the workshop, Commission staff and EQR users will discuss:

  • Control area naming conventions;
  • Standardized names for trading hubs for the Specific Location fields;
  • Product Names and definitions;
  • Day-Ahead vs. Real Time reporting;
  • An EQR refiling policy;
  • Export data function improvements; and
  • Other user issues.

This is intended to be a working meeting with considerable discussion of detailed elements of the EQR.

All interested parties are invited to attend. Documents to be discussed at the meeting will be posted on the EQR Users Group and Workshops page on the Commission's Web site at /docs-filing/eqr/groups-workshops.asp. For those unable to attend in person, limited access to the workshop will be available by teleconference. (WebEx, used for previous meetings, will not be used.)

Those interested in participating are asked to e-mail to register. There is no registration fee. In addition to the Workshop sessions noted above, there will be a working group session on Monday, September 29, 2003, from 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., to help frame some of the more challenging issues. This session will not be available via teleconference.
