CITY & STATE | The 2023 Energy & Environment Power 100
New York’s electric grid is in line for a massive overhaul due to the state’s current plan to eliminate most carbon emissions by 2030. Richard Dewey, who has led the New York Independent System Operator since 2019, warned that the state needs 20 gigawatts of new renewable energy by 2030 and 75 gigawatts of zero-carbon resources by 2040 in order to meet its climate targets. So far, the state has facilitated 62 transmission line upgrades, although fewer than half of New York’s solar and wind projects have paid for the cost to connect to its electric system.
