Technical Support to the New York State Reforming the Energy Vision (REV) Initiative Poster

New York State (NYS) has slowing overall demand for electricity, but a growing gap between peak load and base load, which diminishes the overall efficiency of the NYS electricity system. By creating electricity markets at the distribution layer, the NYS Reforming the Energy Vision (REV) initiative seeks to enable significantly increased levels of Distributed Energy Resources (DER)—including renewable generation, demand response, and energy storage—to help manage peak load, drive greater system efficiency, and increase reliability and resilience of the grid.
