A Stronger, Smarter Grid: Policies and Possibilities

Wednesday, Jan 16, 2013

In the wake of Hurricane Sandy, over 3.5 million electric customers in the Tri-State area, over 800,000 customers in New York City alone, were without electricity. Three weeks later, there were still thousands without power.

What should tomorrow's transmission and distribution grid look like? Who pays for the cost of increasing our ability to harness increasingly diverse sources of power, micro-grids and renewables? What regulatory and institutional structures are supporting or preventing adoption? What steps are being taken in New York and the United States as well as abroad to encourage our meeting of these goals?
