11:00 – 11:30 a.m. :: Long Island Case Study – Beneficial Electrification

PSEG Long Island is working to support the state goal of implementing the “Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act” which calls for 185 TBTU of building energy savings by 2025. The act also calls for obtaining 70% of all electricity from renewable resources by 2030, with the overall goal to achieve an 85% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.  This presentation will discuss two technologies for achieving these results:  1) electric heat pumps and 2) electric vehicles.  In both cases, the displacement of fossil fuels with electricity will reduce greenhouse gas emissions and also improve electric system efficiency because most of the electricity for these uses will be off-peak.  Heat pumps primarily increase consumption in the winter months, where there is spare capacity, and EVs are expected to be charged mainly at night.  Data will be presented to show the impact of offering an off-peak “Smart Charge Rewards” program for electric vehicle charging, encouraging customers to charge substantially during overnight hours.

Michael Voltz, Director, Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energy, PSEG Long Island

11:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. :: How to Use Data to Take the Guesswork Out of Transportation Electrification Program Design and Administration

Governments, regulated entities and the private sector are trying a wide variety of incentives to encourage electric vehicle (EV) adoption to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Without data, knowing which mix of incentives will get the job done – at the lowest cost and in the shortest time is a guessing game.  Understanding the many assumptions that go into projections about EV adoption rates and EV charging needs will help you build, manage and track a transportation electrification program to meet your agency’s goals.

Karen Glitman, Senior Director, Transportation and DER Markets, Center for Sustainable Energy

12:00 – 12:30 p.m. :: Preparing for New York’s Distributed Grid

  • Leveraging smart inverter capabilities
