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.

Grid modernization is an urgent and imperative requirement as the energy demands of the nation continue to grow, expand and evolve. With a multitude of new energy sources, including new alternative fuel, renewable and traditional suppliers; new methods of electricity management, storage and distribution; and new technologies to direct, analyze and redirect energy, there is a driving imperative to implement a new, more efficient and effective grid to better balance supply and demand.
In addition, innovative approaches in automation, redundant systems and other related concepts, such as microgrids and improved storage methods, have allowed for a more robust and flexible system to emerge, one that is both efficient and effective and can minimize and eliminate inconsistency in service and supply interruption even in heavy demand and emergency scenarios.
This conference will cover the latest innovations, the newest concepts and the most recent developments in the industry and take a look at the future of the grid using a case study and data-driven curriculum. This event will also afford all in attendance a great opportunity to ask questions of their peers, industry colleagues and experts from throughout the marketplace in an interactive setting and networking opportunity, and provide an in-depth look today at the smarter, more effective and highly efficient modernized grid of tomorrow.

Building the foundation for tomorrow’s smarter energy infrastructure requires actionable insights and visualization into massive volumes of data. Platforms that empower real-time insight, analysis and control, as well as integration with the expanding smart grid infrastructure will continue to take center stage for bulk power system operations. In an industry that typically hasn’t undergone vast change, the recent evolution has accelerated the need for a knowledge-based infrastructure and achieving this awareness is paramount in order to become a fully interconnected energy system. As the industry continues to progress, more challenges for grid operators will be presented, however this will propose new opportunities and advantages for the industry.
