Smart Grid For Smart Cities: Opportunities & Challenges

Wednesday, Feb 3, 2010

Building a smart electric power grid will be one of the great achievements of our time. But getting there will challenge utilities, government, investors and innovators alike. While public attention has started to consider smart grids at the national scale, the urban scale is where success or failure will be found. Using New York as a living laboratory, this conference will explore what it would take for a smart city to construct a smart grid.

Sponsors: The Sallan Foundation, CUNY Institute for Urban Systems, the New York League of Conservation Voters, and New York University - Wagner Graduate School of Public Service

Panel Two: Reza Ghafurian (Con Edison); William Hery (Co-Director, ISIS Lab and Adjunct Professor, Computer Science & Engineering, NYU-Poly); Ramesh Karri (Associate Professor, Electrical and Computer Engineering, NYU-Poly); and James Gallagher (Senior V.P., NYC Economic Development Corporation). 
Panel Three: Dr. Stephen Hammer (Executive Director, Joint US-China Collaboration on Clean Energy, Energy Smart Cities Initiative).
Moderators: Nancy Anderson, (Executive Director, the Sallan Foundation), Michael Bobker (CUNY Institute for Urban Systems), Marcia Bystryn (President, New York League of Conservation Voters) Rae Zimmerman (Professor, NYU Wagner School of Public Service & ICIS).
