On May 9, 2013, FERC issued a notice that it will hold a special Commission meeting on May 16, 2013 to hear presentations from representatives of Regional Transmission Organizations (“RTOs”) and Independent System Operators (“ISOs”) on natural gas and electric coordination.  The meeting follows a November 15, 2012 order requiring RTOs and ISOs to brief FERC on their experiences during the winter and spring seasons, share any advances made in increased coordination between the two industries, and voice any concerns that have emerged.

The meeting will be held on May 16, 2013 at FERC headquarters in Washington, DC from 1:30pm to 3:30pm.  Any interested party may attend the meeting without first registering, or watch via FERC webcast.  According to the notice, Commission members will be present.  A copy of the notice detailing the meeting agenda and listing its presenters is available here.
