The water power industry is looking for effective strategies to minimize risk and effectively manage compliance with successful NERC compliance programs.

“We’re proud to participate again as a sponsor at Waterpower Week with professionals who are seeking better ways to assure resiliency, minimize risk, and continue their successful NERC compliance programs.” - Ann Broussard, Office of NERC Compliance Business Development Director.

Certrec, a leading regulatory provider for NERC compliance, participated as a sponsor in the 2018 Annual Waterpower Week in Washington, D.C. Waterpower Week offered plenty of networking activities as well as excellent presentations, perspectives on traditional hydropower, pumped storage, and marine energy that were shared by industry experts who provided insights on the current industry and a meaningful look ahead. The Washington, D.C., location facilitated key regulatory participation.

Certrec currently provides NERC compliance support on an ongoing basis to three hydropower sites in the U.S. and Canada as well as several fleets that include hydropower facilities.
