Start Preamble

Take notice that Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (Commission) staff will hold a technical conference, after the October 2018 Commission public meeting, to hear from the Regional Transmission Organizations (RTOs) and Independent System Operators (ISOs) [1] on their efforts for ensuring reliable and economic system performance during the 2018-2019 winter season. The technical conference will take place on October 18, 2018 at the Commission's offices at 888 First Street, NE, Washington, DC beginning at 2:00 p.m. and ending at 3:30 p.m. (Eastern Time). Commission staff will lead the technical conference, and Commissioners may attend.

Similar to past years' dialogue, we expect a robust discussion with the RTOs/ISOs on their key winter preparedness challenges and their current or proposed operational system enhancements and market changes to address those challenges. For RTOs/ISOs that are not winter-peaking, we look forward to hearing about their efforts to prepare for other seasons that may potentially challenge their region's reliability and markets.

If there is further information related to this conference, it will be provided in a supplemental notice.

All interested persons may attend the conference, and registration is not required. However, in-person attendees are encouraged to register on-line at:​whats-new/​registration/​106-186-18-form.asp.
