June 13: NYC - Managing the Renewable Grid: A Transatlantic Dialogue (NYU Energy Policy Discussion Series) #MCLE

In 2015, renewable energy resources supplied approximately 33% of Germany’s electricity demand. Yet, despite the influx of intermittent resources, the German grid appears as reliable as ever. If anything, reliability has improved in recent years. What regulatory and technical innovations has Germany implemented to accomplish this feat and what challenges has it encountered along the way? The upcoming event will examine the German experience and the lessons it may hold for New York State. The panel will also provide an update on initiatives underway in New York to help manage an increasingly renewable power system.
