Reforming the Energy Vision for NY
Through Governor Andrew M. Cuomo’s REV initiative, New York State has become a nationwide leader in evolving the infrastructure and business model of the energy industry. Rapid changes in the way energy is produced, sold, distributed, monitored, and used, along with society’s increasing reliance on electric power, have made it critically important to think about energy delivery in new ways. REV is using the best ideas of citizens, energy business experts, and government leaders to create a clean, resilient, and affordable energy system for all New Yorkers. NYPA is one of the key creators and implementers of REV initiatives.
Albany Microgrid Project:
Empire State Plaza Microgrid
A new state-of-the-art microgrid will be built to power, heat and cool Empire State Plaza in Albany. The microgrid will supply 90 percent of the power for the 98-acre downtown Albany complex and will be able to operate independently from the power grid in the case of an emergency or outage.
