Abstract:
Presented by Energy & Environmental Technology Applications Center (E2TAC) - A panel focusing on Smart Grid planning in New York State

The Future Electric Delivery System

Albany, NY | Posted on November 24th, 2010

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.

The Panel

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.

Panelists include:

* Dejan Sobajic, Grid Engineering [consultant to NYISO]
* Clayton Burns, National Grid
* Chad Abbey, Hydro Quebec
* Vijay Pargaonkar, CG Power Solutions
* Unni Pillai, College of Nanoscale Science & Engineering

Moderator: Pradeep Haldar, E2TAC

Agenda

4:30 - 6:00 pm: Panel Discussion
6:00 - 7:30 pm: Cocktail Reception

Details

* Date: Thursday, December 9
* Time: 4:30 - 7:30 pm
* Location: The College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering, 255 Fuller Rd. Albany, NY 12203

RSVP: Nicholas Querques at or 518-956-7374
