Outlook Datasheet - Media Content
A new report by the NYISO, the 2021-2040 System & Resource Outlook (The Outlook) highlights the need for careful coordination of resource additions, transmission investment, and existing emitting generation retirements to achieve an orderly transition of the electric grid to 100% carbon-free.
At the NYISO, "Independent" is (Literally) our Middle Name
The name is the “New York Independent System Operator.” There’s a reason that the word “Independent” is part of our title.
Grid Reliability Requires a Careful Transition from Fossil Fuels
A clean energy transition is underway. As fossil fuel plants retire and new renewable resources supply our energy needs, we need to move carefully to maintain reliability on the electric grid. A successful transition to a zero-emissions grid means synchronizing the addition of clean energy resources with the retirement of fossil-fuel generators to protect reliability.
Our Role Expanding Transmission to Meet the Needs of a Clean Energy Grid
Transmission developers are making the biggest investment to the energy grid in a generation, investing $2 billion on upgrading transmission lines around the state. These multiple projects, which will help prepare us for the grid of the future, came about in part through our work in planning for future needs and working with developers and regulators.
