Stakeholders are made up of individuals and organizations that have an interest in the development and operations of the IEDR, extending beyond groups of potential users and contributors of the platform. In the broadest sense, this includes parties interested in providing professional services or supplying technical components for the IEDR.
Stakeholders will have meaningful opportunities to contribute to the development of the IEDR through a robust schedule of workshops, technical conferences, periodic reports, and other formats.


As custodians of customer and system data, the active participation of utilities in all aspects of the IEDR initiative is essential to the IEDR Program's success. In addition to the participation of all the Utilities as members of the UCG, the Utilities will be represented on the Advisory Committee and, most importantly, as active contributors to the full range of stakeholder meetings, workshops, technical conferences, and working groups.

Other Providers of Energy Data

The value of the IEDR will be enhanced as sources of energy data expand beyond utilities to include data than can be provided by other providers of relevant information. The IEDR will be designed to scale and grow to effectively incorporate what is expected to be an evolving and expanding group of data resources including public sources such as weather data and other published data sets.

Steering Committee

The Steering Committee is an interagency working group representing the State of New York that is responsible for monitoring all aspects of IEDR Program execution and operation. The Steering Committee will provide oversight of the development, implementation, and operation of the IEDR by addressing policy, schedule, and budget issues associated with the IEDR Program. As such, the Steering Committee is the "governing body" for the IEDR Program. The IEDR Steering Committee's responsibilities also include providing guidance and direction to the Program Sponsor and IEDR Program Manager. The Steering Committee will perform its functions over the life of the IEDR.
