Frank Norcross, ‎Vice President, Hudson Yards Energy, Related Companies

On May 24, 2018, New York Advanced Energy Group 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.

This installment of the AEG Podcast features Frank Norcross, Vice-President of Hudson Yards Energy. Frank opened his presentation by describing Hudson Yards Energy’s cogeneration plant on Manhattan’s west side. The plant serves as a microgrid within a district energy system. Mr. Norcross emphasized the need to reform the dynamics of the energy markets, as well as address the one-way power flow in the aged grid and the need to design and finance more holistic energy models. He also suggested that current regulation requires better and stronger collaboration to capitalize on the linkages in markets, underlying factors like the importance of interaction with grid operators including ConEdison, and the need for discussion around information technology and means of optimizing generation plants.
