PODCAST: Clean Energy, Climate Change, and Creating a Culture of Evolution
There’s an evolution coming to the energy grid, and according to NYISO Executive Vice President Emilie Nelson, that makes it a great time to be working in the industry.
Interviewed for our second Power Trends Podcast, Nelson spoke about her career, her new position at the NYISO, and the changes that are to come.
“You need to create a collaborative environment where people are willing to share ideas and learn from one another in order to determine the optimal solution,” said Nelson. “That includes within our four walls as well as reaching out to our stakeholders and policy makers.”
Nelson described the important role of the NYISO’s grid operators and its wholesale energy markets in addressing the recent passing of the state’s landmark Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act, which seeks to grow the amount of clean energy on the energy grid, “The job is getting more complex,” she said. “Our organization is positioned well to really step up to the task.”
