White Paper – Conceptual j5 NERC Compliance Application

In 2003, the North East Blackout plunged an estimated 45 million people into the dark and triggered the creation of the Energy Policy Act of 2005. This act resulted in the appointment (via FERC) of NERC (the North American Electric Reliability Corporation) as the “Electric Reliability Organization” (ERO) and made NERC’s policies enforceable by law with penalties up to $1million per day per violation. This White Paper explores how a conceptual j5 NERC Compliance application could manage these regulations efficiently and effectively.

White Paper – Ten Compelling Reasons for Implementing Web Based, Database driven Logbooks in the Power Industry

In contrast, modern, web-based Electronic Logs use efficient database structures, are secure and scalable, include full auditing facilities, can be invoked across multiple sites and link into multiple other applications.
