The New York State Smart Grid Consortium is part of a team that was awarded $3 million overall from Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E) to develop a Distribution System Operator Simulation Studio.
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) today built on its Grid Modernization Initiative – an ongoing effort that reflects the Obama Administration’s commitment to improving the resiliency, reliability, and security of the nation’s electricity delivery system.
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.

The Seventh Conference on Innovative Smart Grid Technologies (ISGT2016), sponsored by the IEEE Power & Energy Society (PES), will be held September 6-9, 2016 at the Radisson Blu Minneapolis Downtown hotel in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
The Conference will be a forum for the participants to discuss issues and effective strategies for grid modernization given the changing electric industry landscape due to the advent of information and communication technology and the emergence of renewable and distributed energy resources (DERs). The Conference will feature plenary sessions, panels, technical papers, industry exhibits, and tutorials by experts on smart grid applications and systems integration. The theme for this year will be “Transformation and Advancements for Grid Modernization,” and will include an emphasis on advanced distribution management systems, the integration of distributed energy resources, the seams between distribution and bulk power operations, and the needed approaches for both planning and operations.

The need to increase the reliability of solar and wind power, integrate distributed energy resources, and meet new regulatory requirements are compelling energy providers to evaluate options for grid-scale energy storage. In addition, industrial and commercial customers are leveraging on-site storage to reduce demand charges, ensure power quality, and move toward grid independence. Indeed, Navigant Research expects global installed energy storage for the grid and ancillary services to reach 21 GW by 2024 and $15.6 billion in revenue.
