NEMA Publishes Two Cable Standards
The National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) has published RV 1-2008 Application and Installation Guidelines for Armored Cable (AC) and Metal-Clad (MC) Cable and RV 2-2008 Application and Installation Guidelines for Nonmetallic-Sheathed (NM-B) Cable and Underground Feeder and Branch (UF-B) Circuit Cable.
Both standards have been updated to reflect changes in the National Electrical Code®. RV 1, last revised in 2004, contains information on the latest installation, application, and construction requirements for types MC and AC cables. RV 2, last revised in 2005, focuses on types NM-B and UF-B cables.
The Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) announced its support as a founding member of the Global Carbon Capture and Storage Institute (GCCSI) initiative, an Australian-led effort launched today in Canberra that is targeted at accelerating worldwide development of carbon capture and storage (CCS) technologies.
