SERC’s governance is designed to assure fair stakeholder representation and independence in all activities. SERC is governed by a hybrid Board of Directors consisting of stakeholder and Independent Directors. In January of 2021, SERC added Independent Directors to the SERC Board from what had historically been a stakeholder-based board. Through our stakeholder members, we have established a Board that represents every kind of sector that could impact and ensure the reliability and security of the grid. Our stakeholder Directors bring pragmatic and current expertise on risks to the grid and they own the solutions created through their oversight – which is why the model works so well. The addition of Independent Directors and transitioning to a hybrid Board will ensure stakeholder engagement, add independent balance, and keep the organization thoughtful of reputational risks. The Board is responsible for overseeing SERC's affairs according to SERC’s Bylaws and the Delegation Agreement between SERC and NERC.
Further detailed information regarding the Board composition, eligibility, voting, and additional duties may be found in the SERC Reliability Corporation Bylaws.
