Smart Grid

This program promotes the systematic modernization of the electric grid by designing and managing programs focused on improving the reliability, efficiency, security, and overall performance of the electric power delivery system in New York State. Program offerings provide opportunities for sharing risks associated with research, development, demonstration and validation (RD&D) of innovative “smart grid” technology and applications that improve asset utilization, improve efficiency, maintain strict security, lower consumer costs and lower the carbon intensity of the electric-power sector. Program focus includes efforts to expand grid functionality such as advanced energy storage, advanced monitoring, automation, management and controls, innovative demand response and integration of renewable resources and electric vehicles.

Who Can Participate

Investment into smart grid infrastructure has the potential to produce substantial benefits for New York State consumers and businesses at many times the cost of those investments. The state will also benefit by being able to achieve energy goals which include increased renewable sources of energy, reduced carbon production from the electric power sector at lower cost; and will enjoy improved power system reliability and greater security of energy.

Projects both within and outside of the six (Consolidated Edison, Orange and Rockland, New York State Electric and Gas, Rochester Gas and Electric, Central Hudson Gas and Electric, and National Grid) regulated electric service territories are eligible for funding under this solicitation. Research and Development that is not utility specific and has broad statewide energy efficiency and reliability benefits.
