New York needs tool to help build maps – 50% renewable maps

Home / Construction / New York needs tool to help build maps – 50% renewable maps

First you need come up with the broad vision – 50% renewables. Then you need tell the engineers what to build…but if you’ve never built it before what are you going to tell an engineer to do? Well, we head back to step one and vision – now you need to come up with ideas to build the tools to help you understand what you’re about to do. New York has set an aggressive solar+wind+storage+microgrid goal. It will take the best of their Wall Street minds and PE signatures.

SOURCE: $15 million is available for projects that will help New York improve the resiliency, efficiency and overall performance of its electric grid. Concept papers will be accepted through July 18 in one of four categories: research studies, engineering studies, product development and demonstration projects .
