8 Free Template from WEQ-004 Coordinate Interchange Business Practice Standards Annual Plan Item 3.a.ii Review and correct WEQ-004 Coordinate Interchange Business Practice Standard as needed based on activities in NERC Project , Coordinate Interchange Standards Revisions and supporting EOP R4 and R6. Status: Voted out of subcommittee for 30-day formal comment. Comments were due by Aug. 15, Two sets of comments received Modified and approved by WEQ EC on Aug. 19, 2014 To be sent out for membership ratification. 8
9 Electric Industry Registry Business Practice Standards (to do’s) Determine if Business Practices are needed for registration of pseudo-ties Investigate the need for more transparent object revision and publication schedules.
10 EIR Update JESS Approved Enhancements ER14001 – TVA requested new energy product code 7-CB (for tagging CBM) ER13002 – NWMT requested mechanism to notify when objects will be removed from EIR publication ER13001 – NERC requested EIR include schema and GUI for registration and approval of pseudo-ties
11 JESS Mission Statement Update JESS Changing Mission Statement Potential new name – NCISS? CESS or CISS – Coordinate Electronic Scheduling Subcommittee or Coordinate Interchange Scheduling Subcommittee No NERC oversight Will be posted for comments
OASIS Subcommittee J.T. Wood, Alan Pritchard, and Paul Sorenson co- chairs Preemption and Competition is still on track to be completed by 4th Q 2014 and considered at the February EC meeting. This will impact the publication cycle as publication of WEQ Version is contingent upon completion of these standards. Publication is set for 2 nd Q 2015.
Working on all phases of Preemption and Competition o Short-Term Firm Preemption and Competition o Non-Firm Preemption and Competition o Competition for Rollover Rights (Long-Term Competition) Main Outstanding Scope Issues o Resales (including aggregation of resales and redirect of resales) o Competition for Rollover Rights Make revisions to Business Practice Standards o WEQ-000 o WEQ-001 o WEQ-002 o WEQ-003 o WEQ-013 Out for formal comments 4Q 2014 OASIS Subcommittee Preemption and Competition

Business Practices Subcommittee Reviewing/addressing second round of informal comments on Parallel Flow Visualization (PFV) The PFV business practice standards are still on track to be completed by 3rd Q 2014 and considered at the October WEQ EC meeting.
Business Practices Subcommittee Timeline:
Random NAESB Stuff Next WEQ EC meeting October 21, 2014 in Richmond, VA Board considering structure changes: Retail Quadrant (formally Retail Gas and Retail Electric Quadrants) might become Retail Market Quadrant Removal of the sub-segments Moving structure descriptions from Quadrant procedures to Bylaws level (common alignment of Quadrant representation)
NERC INT Reliability Standards Retirement of old standards and effective date of new standards is October 1, 2014, with the exception of one requirement, INT-004-3, R3. NERC: “Requirement R3 will become effective on the first calendar day two calendar quarters after the NAESB Electric Industry Registry is able to accept Pseudo-Tie registrations. All existing and future Pseudo-Ties are to be registered in the NAESB Electric Industry Registry.”
NERC INT Reliability Standards Are you looking at compliance? For each requirement, what are using to collect information/data to demonstrate compliance? Do the tools you relied-on up until now sufficiently capture the information need in the new standards? Composite Confirmed Interchange - The energy profile (including non-default ramp) throughout a given time period, based on the aggregate of all Confirmed Interchange occurring in that time period.
NERC INT Reliability Standards INT Dynamic Transfers To ensure Dynamic Schedules and Pseudo-Ties are communicated and accounted for appropriately in congestion management procedures. R1 – tag or use alternate means R2 – if tagged, keep it up-to-date R3 – register Pseudo-Ties in the EIR
NERC INT Reliability Standards INT Evaluation of Interchange Transactions To ensure that responsible entities conduct a reliability assessment of each Arranged Interchange before it is implemented R1 - BAs must actively approve or deny the transition to Confirmed Interchange and it lists criteria when a BA must deny. R2 - TSPs must actively approve or deny the transition to Confirmed Interchange and it lists criteria when a TSP must deny. R3 - BAs must actively approve or deny the transition of a curtailment or reload request to Confirmed Interchange. R4 - Sink BAs shall deny the transition an Arranged Interchange to Confirmed Interchange based on certain criteria. R5 - Sink BAs must distribute notifications to listed entities indicating whether an Arranged Interchange has transitioned to Confirmed Interchange.
NERC INT Reliability Standards INT Implementation of Interchange To ensure that Balancing Authorities implement the Interchange as agreed upon in the Interchange confirmation process. R1 - BA must agree with their each of its Adjacent BAs to a Composite Confirmed Interchange value. R2 - Adjacent BAs incorporating a Pseudo-Tie must agree to a common source for the dynamic signal used in their Actual Net Interchange term for their ACE equation. R3 - BA that controls a high-voltage DC tie coordinates the Confirmed Interchange.
NERC INT Reliability Standards INT Interchange Initiation and Modification for Reliability To provide guidance for required actions on Confirmed Interchange or Implemented Interchange to address reliability. R1, R2, and R3 are revisions to existing requirements that provide clarity and shift compliance responsibility.
NERC INT Reliability Standards INT Intra-Balancing Authority Transaction Identification To ensure that transfers within a Balancing Authority Area using Point to Point Transmission Service are communicated and accounted for in congestion management procedures. An old FERC directive Requirements similar to dynamics – tag or some other means Includes grand-fathered service No special processing within e-Tag
