Electrifying New York: Grid Readiness and Infrastructure Resiliency

Articles | December 8, 2023

The New York League of Conservation Voters Education Fund (NYLCVEF) and Con Edison co-hosted a panel discussion on December 4, at The Center for Architecture (AIA) in New York City.

As New York transitions to electrifying its transportation and buildings sectors, we must consider grid readiness and infrastructure resiliency. The event featured a panel of cross-sector experts who discussed our transmission infrastructure needs. They addressed what they’re currently doing to achieve New York City’s clean energy goals, and more.

NYLCVEF President Julie Tighe delivered opening remarks and the expert panel included Carl Mas, the Vice President for Policy, Analysis and Research at the New York State Energy Research Development Authority; Chris Casey, a Senior Attorney for the NRDC’s Climate & Clean Energy Program; Jen Hensley, Senior Vice President, Corporate Affairs at Con Edison; and Kevin Lanahan, Senior Corporate Affairs Executive & Communications Leader for the New York Independent System Operator

Samantha Maldonado, a reporter for THE CITY who covers climate and resiliency, moderated the panel. We invite you to view the recording here.
