The Q1 2017 New York Advanced Energy Group (NYAE) Stakeholder Breakfast took place on Thursday, March 23rd at the offices of Duane Morris where discussion leaders and attendees examined the topics of microgrids and critical infrastructure in the context of City public policy, infrastructure, the private sector, and beyond.
On December 15, 2016, in New York City, Advanced Energy Group held its quarterly stakeholder breakfast. It was facilitated by founder and CEO, H.G. Chissell and covered the transportation sector from various perspectives. Phyllis Kessler of Duane Morris aptly put that the transportation sector has overtaken utilities as the number one producer greenhouse gases in the nation. She addressed issues ranging from the need to bulk up the electrical grid for vehicle charging stations to modernized and efficient transportation such as high speed ferries that run off of hydrogen fuel cells.
On September 14, 2016, New York Advanced Energy hosted their quarterly Stakeholder Breakfast focused on Technology, Buildings and Distributed Generation Optimization. H.G. Chissell the Executive Director of New York Advanced Energy moderated the conversation. At its onset, the presentations by all the different panelists shed light on critical concerns within each of the sectors. From the different mechanisms that ConEdison is employing to push for the integration of distributed resources to data driven approaches for customer acquisition and real time results, the panelists addressed a host of issues that are critical in paving the future of distributed energy resources (DERs), a critical issue in New York City that houses a large number of buildings.
New York Advanced Energy’s Stakeholder Breakfast brought together major players in energy optimization and building efficiency, from utility providers to building owners, to identify the gaps in the industry and find actionable solutions.
Megacities use 9% of world’s electricity. New York City is the world’s largest mega-city, by far. In areas of extreme congestion, there is a significant, and growing need for consumers to reduce their electric load at peak times to prevent grid outages, preserve existing electric infrastructure and contain network damages – all of which translate into higher costs to the ratepayer and greater economic benefits for customer sided distributed energy resources (DERs).
