Start Preamble

Take notice that Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (Commission) staff will convene a workshop to discuss actions the Commission could take to ensure that transmission providers continue to calculate and post available transfer capability (ATC) in a manner that ensures nondiscriminatory access to wholesale electric transmission services. This workshop is prompted by the filing by the North American Electric Reliability Corporation proposing changes to its ATC-related reliability standards,[1] and the initiative to replace these standards with similarly focused business practice standards to be developed by the North American Energy Standards Board (NAESB).[2] The workshop will be held on Thursday, March 5, 2015 from 8:45 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. in the Commission Meeting Room at the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, 888 First Street NE., Washington, DC 20426. Commission members may participate in the workshop.

A supplemental notice will be issued prior to the workshop with further details regarding the agenda and organization of the workshop. The workshop will be open for the public to attend. Advance registration is not required, but is encouraged. Attendees may register at the following Web page: https://www.ferc.gov/​whats-new/​registration/​03-05-15-form.asp.

Details also will be posted on the Calendar of Events on the Commission's Web site, www.ferc.gov.
