5. Energy Infrastructure Modernization

REV Initiative - Energy Infrastructure Modernization

60% of New York’s power generation infrastructure is over 35 years old. As we develop distributed energy resources statewide, it is critical for the safety and resiliency of our current energy system that we maintain—and in some instances enhance—the central grid. It is only by doing so that we can continue to meet the energy needs of New Yorkers and integrate clean and distributed power at scale into our energy system.

Sample Initiatives:

  • Energy Highway
  • Low-Cost Power for Economic Development
  • Smart Generation and Transmission
