Albany, NY – Today, the NYISO published its 2021-2040 System and Resource Outlook (The Outlook) which sheds light on two important topics. The first is how the NYISO will need to keep the grid reliable while moving towards the CLCPA mandates. The cases that meet the CLCPA mandates show a significant percentage of the fuel mix is coming from Dispatchable Emission Free Resources (DEFR), a resource type that has not been identified. Without this widespread use of DEFRs by 2035, the NYISO warns that New York might have to utilize out-of-state generation to meet reliability safeguards. This underscores the importance of the New York Public Service Commission to address the concerns raised in IPPNY’s Zero Emission Petition. The second part of the report identifies Renewable Generation Pockets, highlighting where there will likely be transmission constraints with the buildout of more renewable energy. All sectors will have to work together in increasing transmission lines, developing in-state generation, and most of all maintaining reliability.

Albany, NY – With temperatures in New York City predicted to reach into the high nineties this week, the priority of all energy generators is making sure that New Yorkers keep the lights… and air conditioning on. Keeping an electricity grid reliable in a state with an evenly distributed population is a challenge and keeping a grid in New York City and Long Island reliable with the bottleneck in transmission lines is even more difficult. With a load forecast of just under 30,000 MW, making sure that there is enough electricity to meet this demand is essential.

Yesterday evening, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) issued an order accepting the New York Independent System Operator, Inc.’s (NYISO) proposed tariff revisions to exempt State-supported clean energy resources from the NYISO’s buyer-side market power mitigation measures (BSM Rules), improve the valuation of resources’ installed capacity contributions to resource adequacy through a marginal capacity accreditation market design, and enhance the procedures for defining installed capacity demand curves to better reflect a rapidly changing resource mix.

Today, the Independent Power Producers of New York (IPPNY) filed initial comments on the New York State Energy Research Development Authority’s (NYSERDA) petition for the Public Service Commission’s (PSC) review of proposed awards under Tier 4 of the Clean Energy Standard.

Energy Services’ (HQUS) Champlain Hudson Power Express project to deliver renewable energy and reduce reliance on fossil fuel generation in New York City (Zone J).
