Event Detail

Sandy and the Grid: One Year Later

NYSERDA is a sponsor of this event.

Description

The strength of Superstorm Sandy was unprecedented, leaving the 2.2 million people in New York State without power and public transit shut down for weeks. The Hurricane Sandy Task Force estimated economic losses for the region are estimated at 65 billion dollars.

Since the storm, there has been a call for analysis and a cry for future resiliency, including a smarter power grid and increased backup power supplies. Reports have laid out plans to begin climate adaptation and protect our city from future storms.

For this next event, we call on change makers and policy wonks and ask “what’s next?” in New York City’s resiliency plan, and how will energy and technology innovation play a role? Will we see a rise in islanded DG technology? Will a call for resiliency equal a call for a smarter grid?

Join us as we learn about what the new vision of the electricity grid looks like Post-Sandy.

The panel discussion is a featured event of Solar One and NYC ACRE at NYU-Poly’s cleantech panel discussion series, Clean Energy Connections.
