Mark your calendar and plan on attending the 2017 NAESCO Annual Conference & Vendor Showcase, November 14-16, 2017. The leading ESCOs will be represented, plus our Vendor Showcase will display the latest innovations, technologies, and services in the energy efficiency industry. Jim Gallagher will be speaking on the panel “Battle of the Coasts as California and New York Consider Their Respective Vision of the Utility of the Future.”
The IoT for Utilities Summit will bring together energy leaders and experts as well as their suppliers and disruptors to examine the future impact of digitalisation. It will examine the requirements, gaps and opportunities for leveraging emerging technologies to increase production, decrease costs and drive transformation. James Gallagher (Executive Director, New York State Smart Grid Consortium) will be speaking at this event.
The ATSE NSW Division will hold a one-day Symposium in Sydney on the impact of the Finkel Review on energy security and the future of the National Electricity Market. It will address the key issues facing the industry, investors, policy makers and regulators and explore further the challenges identified in its 2016 Symposium on the transition of NEM generation away from coal. James Gallagher (Executive Director, New York State Smart Grid Consortium) will be speaking at this event.
The 2017 New York Consumer Pulse Study was sponsored by the Consortium to better understand the views of New Yorkers on key energy related issues. It was conducted in partnership with the Smart Grid Consumer Collaborative. This study examined key measures of consumer awareness, knowledge, attitudes, and perceived benefits and barriers as they relate to Smart Grid-enabled programs, the State’s Reforming the Energy Vision initiative, and advanced energy technologies.
Governor Andrew M. Cuomo announced the Clean Climate Careers initiative following the U.S. decision to withdraw from the Paris Accord. The initiative is a multi-pronged strategy to grow New York's emerging clean energy economy and prepare the workforce for the long-term careers associated with this industry. In partnership with the ILR School's Worker Institute at Cornell University and Climate Jobs NY, this initiative focuses on accelerating energy efficiency and renewable energy growth to make New York a magnet for new energy technologies and creating 40,000 new, good-paying clean energy jobs by 2020.
Consortium member Ericsson has been selected by Landmark Dividend, a leading real estate and infrastructure firm, to build communications infrastructure for its intelligent microgrid ecosystem across North America. Ericsson will build its Zero Site platform, cloud, core, and Internet of Things (IoT) software solutions. To support the developing Landmark network, Ericsson will add its cloud, core and IoT software solutions with enterprise and energy-management applications. Ericsson will also provide microgrid management, integrating communications for the industrial IoT with battery storage applications and grid-control software.
Energy Storage North America (ESNA) is the largest conference and expo for grid-connected energy storage in North America. With a focus on building the grid of the future, ESNA 2017 will bring together policymakers, utilities, commercial and industrial customers and storage industry stakeholders for energy storage site tours, networking, workshops, and learning sessions. ESNA 2017 will take place August 8-10 at the San Diego Convention Center.
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.
