This webinar - presented by NERC - is designed to help Data Reporters submit data to the OATI webE-GADS platform. GADS is a database that maintains the history of generation and outages, and there are three types of data:  Design, Performance and Event. As of 2013, any conventional unit that has a name plate rating that is over 20 MW is required to submit GADS data to NERC.

Pre-registration is not required.

For more information or assistance, please contact NERC at gads@nerc.net via email or at 404-446-9726.
