Reforming New York's Energy Vision
Henderson 106
6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
The energy industry is in transition. Technological innovation and increasing competitiveness of renewable energy resources, combined with aging infrastructure, extreme weather events, and system security and resiliency needs, are all leading to significant changes in our electricity system.

In April 2014, Governor Cuomo announced a process to re-make the way energy is produced, sold, purchased, and used in New York State. The initiative, called "Reforming the Energy Vision" (REV), will align electric utility practices and the NY Public Service Commission’s regulatory model with technological advances that have created alternatives to traditional solutions to meeting electricity demand.

Bard College invites you to attend a panel on March 3rd to learn about the REV Proceedings and to hear from representatives from four key stakeholder organizations how their organizations are responding to the REV, what it represents for the current system, and what impact it will likely have on the future of energy production, distribution, and consumption in New York.

Panelists:
Rudy Stegemoeller, New York State Public Service Commission (PSC)
Tom Rumsey, New York Independent System Operator (NYISO)
Guy Sliker, New York Power Authority (NYPA)
Joe Hally, Central Hudson
