Damian Sciano, Director Distributed Resource Integration, Con Edison

On May 24, 2018, New York Advanced Energy held its stakeholder breakfast at Duane Morris. The event brought AEG’s stakeholder members together to discuss the topics of Smart Buildings and Grid Modernization.

In this episode of the AEG podcast, we held a discussion with Damian Sciano, Con Edison’s Director of Distributed Resource Integration. He focused on the enabling role of grid modernization in the evolution of the existing energy system. He talked about Con Edison’s efforts to increase transparency and cross-sectoral collaboration to move from a single-value platform to a multi-value one – delivering a wide variety of services to build greater consumer involvement. Delving into the technicalities that make the company’s task of servicing New York City challenging, Mr. Sciano shared how ConEd's remote monitoring system is one of many that incorporate granular data collection, consumer engagement, and transaction improvements. He provided a glimpse into the future of grid modernization and architecture in responding to consumers’ changing expectations.
