REV Demo Projects
REV is driving New York's six investor-owned utilities to work with energy innovators to lower costs, test advanced technologies, and design new replicable business models through REV Demonstration Projects (REV Demo Projects).
Together utilities and their partners are trying out ways to power our homes and businesses reliably at lower costs while reducing emissions. As with all things REV, clean, resilient, and more affordable energy are the driving forces.
REV Demo projects will also:
- Help utilities and their partners figure out the most effective ways to utilize distributed energy resources like rooftop solar, energy storage, and microgrids
- Test new approaches to assess value, explore options, and stimulate innovation before implementing projects full-scale
- Deliver observable results and actionable information within a reasonable timeframe
As with all business operations and consumer products, utilities must assess each project regularly. We hope each REV Demo Project will lead to successful, viable, scalable and replicable solutions for any utility.
Have an idea for a REV Demo Project?
New York is seeking demo projects on an ongoing basis. If you have a product, service, or business model that can lower existing costs and share added value among customers, third parties, and utilities, submit an idea to NYSERDA. Submissions will be shared with the six investor-owned utilities and the New York State energy agencies' team supporting the exploration of REV Demo Projects.
