Presented by Energy & Environmental Technology Applications Center (E2TAC) - A panel focusing on Smart Grid planning in New York State
What is Smart Grid?
It is estimated that over $150 billion is lost each year in power outages on an electrical system that hasn't been updated in nearly a century. The implementation of smart technologies is revolutionizing the production, transmission, and consumption of electricity in the United States and affecting homes and businesses across the nation. The transformation to a smarter grid will increase the reliability, efficiency, and security of the country's electrical system; encourage consumers to decrease their electricity use; reduce greenhouse gas emissions; and allow the integration of all energy sources into the grid of tomorrow.
E2TAC has assembled a first-class panel focusing on the opportunities, issues and challenges facing New York State in implementing Smart Grid. The panel will discuss what the future electric delivery system will look like for residents, and what emerging technologies will help reshape our grid.
