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.
Applicants, which may include local governments, community organizations, non-profit entities, and for-profit companies, can now submit proposals for Stage 1 Feasibility Studies. Click this slide for a link to the RFP.
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 New York State Public Service Commission (NYS PSC) took the bold step of launching the “Reforming the Energy Vision” (REV) proceeding in April 2014. They mapped an ambitious vision of the future for the state’s electricity system, giving more than 200 stakeholders the opportunity to participate in a collaborative process charting the “rules of the road” for the path forward.
Governor Andrew Cuomo recently announced that $3.3 million has been awarded to seven research teams to develop technologies that add resiliency and efficiency to New York State's electric grid.
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.

RISE : NYC is a competition designed to identify and deploy creative new technologies and solutions to make New York City businesses more resilient to the impacts of future storms, sea level rise and other effects of climate change.
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.

May 26-28, 2015
Integration is the word that keeps coming up in the conversations taking place within the DR and smart grid community. The question on everyone’s mind is “how are all of the new technologies that are bursting onto the electricity scene going to be planned, deployed, and operated in a way that takes advantage of what they offer while keeping the electricity system reliable and economical?” We are talking not just about integrating DR, but other DER like DG, storage, EVs, microgrids, distribution automation systems, etc.
But wait…there’s more! What about transactive energy and the expected rise of the “prosumer?”
In planning this year’s Town Meeting, we are building an agenda which will give you a deep dive into some of these areas, and give you enough of a taste of each one so that you get an integrated picture of how everything is going to fit together. Joining with ADS will be a number of different interest groups representing these different DER areas, and they will help ensure a robust, substantive set of sessions that will expand your awareness and understanding of all the things you need to know as a member of the DR & smart grid community.
Jim Gallagher, Executive Director of the New York State Smart Grid Consortium will be speaking at this event.
Register today to reserve your seat at what is shaping up to be an exciting, innovative, and informative event!
There are a variety of key activities now underway in New York State that are relevant to grid modernization.
