The purpose of the Consortium is to collectively harness the unique resources of New York State to help define and achieve its strategic Smart Grid vision; facilitate and enable timely, efficient, cost-effective Smart Grid developments; and serve as a model for the nation.
Promoting the development of a high performing smart grid that accommodates a diverse supply of clean energy generation resources, enhances overall grid performance and enables customers to reduce their energy costs, energy consumption, and environmental impacts.
Smarter Grid Solutions has announced that its Active Network Management technology will be used at the Energy Department’s (DOE) National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) to demonstrate how to increase electric grid hosting capacity for Distributed Energy Resources (DER).

The long-term goal of modernizing New York’s electrical grid to improve reliability and resiliency,
lower long-term costs, and identify best practices to meet the evolving energy service needs of
consumers, will only be achieved through a collaboration of many different stakeholders who are
each responsible for different parts of the solution.
