The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission will hold a technical conference on April 1 to explore the impacts of this winter’s cold weather on regional transmission organizations and discuss actions taken to respond to those impacts. The commission plans to look at a range of issues across multiple RTO regions, including the impact of cold weather events on operational planning and real-time operations, market prices and performance, and regional infrastructure; the actions taken in response to those impacts; gas procurement; and lessons learned that can be shared between regions and applied in future events. 

A notice announcing the conference is posted on FERC’s website. The commission plans to issue a supplemental agenda and further details.
