  1. Northeast 80×50 Pathway Forum

    Leave a Comment

    National Grid’s “Northeast 80×50 Pathway” is a blueprint for the region to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions 80 percent below 1990 levels by 2050 (“80×50”). The first of its kind in the Northeast, the Pathway spans seven states (New York and the six New England states), and addresses the three main sectors of emissions: transportation, electricity, and heat. New York Governor Cuomo  recently announced even more ambitious emissions reduction goals, specifically a carbon neutral electric sector by 2040. Building on the momentum of this announcement, this event will bring together interested parties from across the energy industry to collaborate on charting the path forward for our region’s climate and energy goals. Alicia Barton, President and CEO of the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA), will be offering the keynote. For more information, click here.

    Local energy industry leaders from New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut will gather at the Tri-State Community Energy Summit, which will provide step-by-step information on how to create and manage community-based energy production to stimulate local economies; save money for residents and small businesses; increase resilience to power outages; reduce emissions; and steer profits back into the community. Highlights of the summit include:

    1. A look at new state regulatory programs that support clean energy development
    2. Information regarding local community solar and wind policies and market growth potential
    3. An update from local utilities’ on how they will plan for tri-state community energy projects
    4. A conversation about how DER and renewable energy developers/vendors will grow their business in and across the tri-state area
    5. Lessons learned from early entries into the tri-state clean-energy arena.

    In addition, a Tri-State Executive Briefing will be held to provide a one-day tutorial to help local governments aggregate community energy. Click here for more information.

  4. Webinar: Monetizing Distributed Energy Resources Through Demand Response Markets

    Leave a Comment

    Customers often use DER such as storage, distributed generation, and EVs to meet internal energy and transportation needs without considering how to coordinate resources or determine the kind of value they can provide back to the grid. This webinar will explain the benefits that DER can earn by participating in DR markets and provide case studies of successful DER market integration with CPower and Scale Microgrid Solutions.
