SHORT DESCRIPTION: Implementation Workshop for NPRR902, ERCOT Critical Energy Infrastructure Information

INTENDED AUDIENCE: All Market Participants

DAYS AFFECTED: February 25, 2021

LONG DESCRIPTION: ERCOT will host a workshop on February 25, 2021 from 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM CST to discuss the implementation of Nodal Protocol Revision Request (NPRR) 902, ERCOT Critical Energy Infrastructure Information. The workshop will be held as a Webex and is listed on the ERCOT 2021 Meeting Calendar.

NPRR902 clarifies parties’ responsibilities regarding ERCOT Critical Energy Infrastructure Information (ECEII). It defines ECEII, adds lists of items that are considered ECEII, specifies the restrictions imposed upon parties that receive or create ECEII, allows Market Participants to restrict individual access to ECEII within their organizations through the use of ECEII-eligible Digital Certificates, provides a framework for the submission of ECEII to ERCOT, and creates a process for contesting ERCOT determinations regarding confidentiality status.  NPRR902 was approved by the ERCOT Board on December 10, 2019, and it is anticipated that the associated Protocol language will become effective during 2021 Release 2 (March 30 - April 1, 2021).
