Deploy Smart Grids In B'klyn With Aid Of NY Prlze
Thursday, Mar 10, 2016
83 communities across New York were competitively selected for NY Prize Stage 1 feasibility assessments and Red Hook Brooklyn was one of them. The project is led by Brooklyn's Friends of Community Board 6, the Red Hook New York Rising Community Reconstruction Planning Committee, Smarter Grid Solutions (engineering consultant), and IMG Rebel (financial consultant). Jeremiah Miller, the engineering lead consultant for the Red Hook team, will discuss the emergency preparedness origins of the project, how this is a community led effort and our stakeholder engagement process, and the practical options, challenges and barriers to community microgrids as seen through the Red Hook project. The presentation will conclude with connecting NY Prize's community microgrid ambitions with New York' s Reforming the Energy Vision (REV) ambitions for examples of future utility models.
