There’ll Be Some Changes Made

Tuesday, Sep 9, 2014

Today, we are witnessing the realignment of NY's and the nation's energy system and its regulatory framework for a carbon constrained world in the face of disruptive technologies, new financial practices and novel user demands at the grid edge.

Our conference, There'll Be Some Changes Made: Power System Realignment or Death Spiral?, brings together top experts and thought leaders who will use the 2013 Con Edison rate case settlement and New York's 2014 Reforming the Energy Vision policy report for understanding the dynamics that are profoundly altering the power supply landscape and as a launch point for what people need to be thinking about now.

Place, Date and Time:

Urban Future Lab, NYC ACRE
15 Metrotech, 19th Floor, Brooklyn, NY

Tuesday, September 09, 2014 8:15 AM–Noon
