Gil C. Quiniones, President and CEO of the New York Power Authority (NYPA), has transformed the organization and he has a lot to say about the grid of the future. The internationally-recognized leader in the power industry oversees a quarter of New York’s energy generation and a third of its transmission.

EBOOK: “How Markets Support Climate & Policy Goals,” Details Path to Grid of the Future

Our latest eBook, How Markets Support Climate & Policy Goals, details the role our competitive energy, capacity and ancillary markets play in delivering the grid of the future and our role helping New York meet its goals of a zero-emission energy grid.

Podcast Ep. 15: ACE NY’s Anne Reynolds Advises CAC on Fast-Tracking Clean Energy Targets

Anne Reynolds joined the Alliance for Clean Energy New York (ACE NY) as Executive Director in 2014. But she has spent her career working on clean energy and environmental issues, including on numerous state programs to help ease the transition to emission-free resources in New York.

VIDEO: Power Trends: 8 Minutes, 22 Slides, 1 Grid of the Future

Our Power Trends 2021 report outlines our commitment to maintaining grid reliability in these times of change while detailing how the power grid is evolving to meet public policy objectives.

How Winter Energy Use May Grow with Electrification

Preparing for peak demand is fundamental to our efforts to maintain grid reliability. Our expert planners analyze meteorological forecasts, economic forecasts, and historical energy demand trends to identify when we think the highest energy demand will be, and how much.

VIDEO: Hybrid Storage and the 2040 Grid

What is hybrid storage? It’s the pairing of renewable resources, like solar or wind, with battery storage at the same location. The idea is to capture excess renewable energy effectively when it’s abundant and store it for when the sun goes down or the wind stops blowing.

Offshore Wind and the Role of New Transmission

As New York State moves forward with its plan to grow offshore wind to 9 gigawatts (GW) or more, we are preparing for the necessary transmission changes need to support this new source of energy.

How a Natural Gas Moratorium Could Cause Bumps in the Road to an Emissions-Free Grid

Now that New York State has set 2040 as the year to establish an emissions-free electric grid, industry and government are working together to establish a plan to achieve this monumental goal.

Offshore Wind, Clean Energy Targets, and Our Role Preparing the Grid for New Resources

The state’s Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act (CLCPA) mandates that 70% of our electricity come from renewable energy resources by 2030. To put this in perspective, last year about 28% of our energy was generated from renewable resources.

How Solar on Dispatch Adds Flexibility to a Clean Energy Resource

Renewable resources offer both benefits and challenges to grid operators. Resources such as wind energy and solar power are intermittent, meaning energy production is dependent upon weather conditions.

Podcast Ep. 14: NYISO VP Zach Smith on Emission-Free Grid Planning, Climate Change & the Interconnection Queue

It’s Zach Smith’s job to prepare the New York energy grid for the future. Our Vice President of System and Resource Planning manages the team that looks at all potential reliability issues the grid could face, from a week to 10 years in the future.

Lessons Learned: How the 2014 Polar Vortex Helped Make the New York Energy Grid More Reliable

The dangers of severe weather impacting the grid have been exemplified around the country in the past year, with Texas experiencing a brutal polar vortex in February and California facing problems from extreme heat last summer.

The Grid Rewind: Importance of Reserve Margins, Our Growing Interconnection Queue, New Podcast Channels, and More

As the independent organization responsible for operating the power grid and wholesale energy markets in New York State, the New York ISO is an authoritative source of information about energy generation and transmission.

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.
