10:15 AM – 11:30 AM: Panel 1: Financing the Energy Transition

The energy transition is no longer something that will happen at some time in the future; it is happening today.  With it brings the real opportunity for a clean energy future, as well as the challenge of the cost of the transition and how it will be financed.  This panel will explore various ways in which projects supporting the transition – from transmission infrastructure to the renewable generation and storage – are and will be financed.

12:40 PM – 1:55 PM: Panel 2: NAESB/Gas-Electric Harmonization

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission has mandated that the National American Electric Standards Board ensure gas is available for electric reliability in the aftermath of Elliott and Uri storms.  We will hear from experts sharing their views from gas pipeline operators, to electric grid operators, to generation operators and end users to explore challenges and opportunities in light of this mandate and resulting NAESB work on this issue.

2:05 PM – 3:20 PM: Panel 3: Transmission Infrastructure in NYS

New York State has robust and ambitious renewable energy targets and these targets cannot be met without development and expansion of the New York Transmission System to help accommodate interconnection and deliverability of clean energy to load centers in New York.  Over the years, the New York Independent System Operator and the New York State Energy Research And Development Authority have conducted requests for proposals as such were directed by the New York Public Service Commission to help meet the State’s public policy goals.  This conversation will provoke an enriching discussion among representatives of several of the transmission developers selected to construct these transmission projects, which will highlight information and background on the State’s RFP process and will more importantly explore what these projects are and how they will benefit the State of New York.
