On February 26, 2015, the New York Public Service Commission (PSC) issued an Order to adopt a policy framework for a reformed retail electric industry. In the Order, the PSC also will decide those issues that need resolution at this stage, discuss numerous issues that need further development, and specify a process for moving forward.
The immediate goal of this project is to identify research capabilities related to grid modernization at universities throughout the state. This effort is part of a larger initiative to organize and promote statewide smart grid-related research. The final version is now available for viewing, click above to learn more.
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 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.
