Reliability Standards Discussion Group

Key Date: Feb. 28, 2023, RSDG Session

Purpose

The purpose of the Reliability Standards Discussion Group (RSDG) is to provide an open forum for stakeholders and the AESO to have high-level, non-technical discussions about the Alberta Reliability Standards (ARS) Program, and NERC and WECC reliability standards. Specific objectives are to inform stakeholders of upcoming ARS under development, to discuss with stakeholders ARS program lifecycle continuous improvements, and to provide a forum for general questions or concerns about ARS to be introduced and next steps considered. The RSDG meets three times a year.

The RSDG is an Alberta Reliability Council (ARC) working group.

In-scope

  • RSDG will include ARS program work plan updates, ARS program lifecycle continuous improvements discussions and updates, and ARS open industry discussion.

Out-of-scope

  • Detailed content discussions on specific ARS material during any phase of the ARS lifecycle will occur at a Reliability Standards Workshop (RSW).
  • ARS enforcement is under the mandate of the MSA. As a result, it will not be discussed at RSDG meetings.
