Join Clean Energy Connections for our first event of 2015 – Models for the Future Utility: Examining New York State’s Distributed Service Platform Provider Vision
The New York Public Service Commission’s Reforming Energy Vision (REV) is among the most forward-looking electric utility transformation initiatives in the North America, if not globally. In short, the plan has the potential to fundamentally shift utility regulation to meet the needs of a more distributed, consumer-focused energy system that the future is quickly ushering in with the advent of distributed generation, storage, electric vehicles, smart homes and a plethora of next-generation energy technologies. The bedrock of the initiative is the definition and formation of Distributed Service Platform Providers (DSPPs). This session will explore the definition of a DSPP and how it differs from today’s utility model, explain the values and incentives for all parties involved, outline new products and services that can be supported, put forth the challenges surrounding DER penetration, and investigate how DSPPs interact with other energy markets.
The discussion is a featured event of Solar One and NYC ACRE’s cleantech panel discussion series, Clean Energy Connections in partnership with Greentech Media. Follow our ongoing online discussion at tagboard.com/CleanNRGx
