2020 Strategic Refresh

PUF 2.0 - October 15, 2017

The New York Power Authority is the largest state power organization in the United States, with 16 generating facilities and more than 1,400 circuit-miles of transmission lines.

Emilie Bolduc, VP, New York Energy Manager: “The New York Energy Manager is the customer digitization of NYPA. We’ve had electric meters taking in energy data since we started generating electricity and using it for billing purposes. Now we’re using it in a new way, to understand how our customers are actually consuming their energy… It’s a software platform that’s cloud-based that our customers can access from their sites. They can access it on their mobile app. Anywhere they are, they can see what their building is consuming.”

“We want to be that interface for them. We want them to come to the New York Energy Manager and see what they’re consuming, and what they’re producing. We want them to understand what the market prices are. We want to tie them to different services to help them reduce that energy, or sell it into the marketplace to help them generate revenues. We want to truly be an all-encompassing energy manager for them to access digitally.”

“We can’t just focus on one service, because that’s not going to meet all of our customers’ needs.”

“We’ve worked very closely with the SUNY campuses. We’ve tied a lot of their buildings to the New York Energy Manager. We have trained about forty energy managers at this point on how to use the New York Energy Manager. Some of them have used that data to identify opportunities in their buildings that have saved over $200,000. Those are opportunities to save on operations and maintenance, meaning it did not cost them any upfront capital to make those changes.”

“I’m excited to be working in New York state around reforming the energy vision. What we’re doing with New York Energy Manager is directly supporting that by giving our customers a tool to take control of their energy. To manage it. That is extremely exciting.”
