Con Edison Virtual Energy Storage Day

Presented in Partnership by:

Consolidated Edison of New York and NY-BEST

NY-BEST and Con Edison of New York are teaming up once again to present a half-day virtual event on July 16, 2020 focusing on opportunities for energy storage in Con Edison territory.

Energy storage installers, vendors, and project developers interested in developing energy storage in Con Edison territory are invited to attend this timely and informative event. Attendees will learn first- hand from Con Edison senior managers about the utility’s network, needs, programs and opportunities for energy storage. The agenda includes:

  • discussion of Con Edison programs of interest to energy storage developers;
  • information from NYSERDA on State incentives and initiatives focused on energy storage deployment and achieving the State’s 3 GW by 2030 energy storage deployment goal;
  • updates from NYC on its clean energy agenda;
  • guidance on interconnection with Con Edison  for energy storage with Con Edison;
  • updates on NYC permitting for energy storage; and
  • virtual networking and interactive “ask an expert” sessions featuring Con Edison, NYSERDA and NYC staff experts.

The half-day video-conference event will consist of panel discussions, featured presentations and interactive Networking/Ask an Expert sessions at the end of the day.


Who Should Attend:

Energy storage project developers, vendors, integrators and installers interested in deploying energy storage in Con Edison’s territory.
