“We’re excited to have the opportunity to share our expertise at the Wind O&M Summit with professionals who are seeking better ways to minimize risk, assure data security, and continue their successful NERC compliance programs.” Ann Broussard, Office of NERC Compliance Business Development Director.
FORT WORTH, Texas (PRWEB) March 13, 2018
Certrec, a leading regulatory compliance provider for NERC compliance, announced today its participation as a sponsor in the 10th Annual Wind Operations Dallas 2018 to be held at the Westin Galleria in Dallas, Texas, from April 16-18.
Currently, Certrec provides NERC compliance support on an ongoing basis to three U.S. wind fleets as well as fleets that include wind facilities. It also provides supplemental support to a U.S. wind fleet’s NERC team and is in discussions with several possible new wind clients.
The dynamics of the wind industry—newly improved technologies, customized systems, talented individuals, unique corporate cultures, and a changing regulatory environment—create challenges for the best-run organization. As a result, many discover that a “standardized” approach to NERC compliance, using cookie-cutter templates, does not result in a successful NERC compliance program.
Certrec Corporation is dedicated to regulatory compliance exclusively and has been its inception in 1988. Certrec’s approach is key to its successful client programs and growing NERC practice. Certrec understands that an entity that is dedicated to compliance operates every day in compliance. Every day, they are audit ready, and this is accomplished through an effective Internal Controls Process with periodic self-evaluations of effectiveness, coupled with a robust, corrective-action process.

New Energy Update “The wind energy market is changing at a rapid pace and, with fossil fuels at the whim of the tough commodities market, the growth of wind energy is only set to continue.
As companies invest in or develop larger turbine fleets, they will be faced with an array of challenges that require careful and precise reactive and proactive measures. Compliance with codes and regulations is a key part and I’m glad to have the experience of Certrec on board to assist the whole supply chain in managing critical NERC compliance programs.” Kerr Jeferies, Project Director, New Energy Update.
