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.
NY Prize helps communities reduce costs, promote clean energy, and build reliability and resiliency into the electric grid. NY Prize is a part of a statewide endeavor to modernize New York State’s electric grid, spurring innovation and community partnerships with utilities, local governments, and private sector. Our mission is to enable the technological, operational, and business models that will help communities reduce costs, promote clean energy, and build reliability and resiliency into the grid.
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 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 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.

Changing fundamentals and the value of electricity
Transportation: do consumers want a transport transformation?
The rise of distributed energy and smarter energy management
kWh’s are growing harder to value as daily supply profiles are disrupted by close-to-zero marginal cost renewable energy. How will this fundamental change affect energy market players and regulators and what has been learnt in the most advanced markets?
What is the state and what are the implications of retail rate reforms and the blurring of the boundary between transmission and distribution grids for distributed energy, energy storage applications, consumers and market players?
Building on last year’s success, Greentech Media’s Grid Edge World Forum 2017 returns as the only conference and exhibition focused exclusively on tomorrow’s distributed energy system. We’ll discuss and debate the latest issues and opportunities impacting tomorrow’s distributed energy system, and examine the trends and innovation happening at the grid edge.
