New York State has ambitious energy efficiency goals, which include reducing 80% of its Greenhouse Gas Emissions by 2050 (“80x50”). Through Governor Cuomo’s Reforming the Energy Vision (“REV”) strategy, New York is in a position to lead the country in the deployment of clean energy technology and the decentralization of the power grid. Many of the programs that have emerged from Albany’s focus on utility-scale power generation, like closing the nuclear Indian Point Energy Center and transitioning to offshore wind power; whereas NYSERDA’s Real Time Energy Management Program (“RTEM”) and Con Edison’s Demand Management Program (“DMP”) focus on incentivizing innovation at the Grid Edge, where individual buildings consume energy. Reliant on state-of-the-art reporting systems that measure performance and produce coordinated data, big data analytics, and energy systems optimization, RTEM and DMP are designed to relieve different types of stress on New York’s power grid.
