Greentech Media (GTM) has named the New York Power Authority as a recipient of its 2018 Grid Edge Innovation Award for the Power Authority's success in building an advanced energy management system across New York state. The award was announced Thursday at GTM's 2018 Grid Edge Innovation Summit in San Francisco.
"NYPA is honored to be recognized for our innovation in the use of digital data analytics to help guide our customers towards energy efficiency and cost savings," said Gil Quiniones, NYPA president and CEO. "I am proud to be able to share the work of our talented NYPA engineers and energy efficiency experts with our counterparts throughout the nation, setting the standard for technological progress and data-driven energy management."
NYPA is being recognized for its New York Energy Manager (NYEM), a web-based energy data management system that provides visually accessible energy and equipment operational data to building operators across the state in real-time. The data helps energy managers identify cost-saving strategies and glean insights that can help them significantly reduce the facility's annual energy usage.
NYEM is currently providing support to more than 11,000 public and private facilities statewide, including college systems and major hospital systems. NYEM collects energy usage data from a variety of sources at 15-minute intervals, providing key insights to customers and NYPA experts on ways to improve building energy efficiency, reduce environmental impact, and lower energy bills.
The Grid Edge Innovation Awards recognize projects, companies and partnerships that are leading the charge on new grid technology. All of the chosen projects involve innovation of grid edge technologies and solutions to the technical, business and regulatory challenges of distributed energy generation. All 10 of the award recipients were nominated and voted on by industry stakeholders, including analysts at GTM.
Quiniones delivered the GTM Summit's keynote presentation and discussed NYPA's leadership in innovation at the summit.
