As a facility owner in North America, you are required to comply with the reliability standards of the North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC). These requirements apply to all power generation facilities (including renewables) that are interconnected to the bulk power system.
The NERC standards are notoriously complex, but non-compliance can result in large financial penalties. Moreover, regulators and consumers expect grid reliability, so you may also risk damage to your reputation and economic penalties from grid failures caused by your systems.
However, DNV GL can help you ensure your facilities are fully compliant without you having to invest in detailed in-house knowledge. Our consultants have extensive experience with a wide variety of facility owners, in both the renewable and conventional sectors. They can draw on this knowledge to support you in a full range of compliance-related activities:
- initial compliance assessment
- mitigation plan development and implementation
- compliance program development
- compliance monitoring
- cyber vulnerability assessments
- mock audits
