Con Edison is a sponsor of the third annual New York Energy Week, which will convene experts to discuss the rapid technological and market changes affecting the way people get and use energy to run their homes and businesses.
Con Edison will host the official New York Energy Week Opening Ceremony June 15 at its headquarters at 4 Irving Place in Manhattan.
The evening will feature a panel discussion about progress with the state’s Reforming Energy Vision initiative, a regulatory proceeding to transform power generation, distribution and consumption in the Empire State.
It is Con Edison’s second straight year as a “Terawatt” sponsor of New York Energy Week, the annual event series created by EnerKnol, an energy policy data company based in New York City.
Last year’s New York Energy Week drew 3,000 energy professionals from a wide range of sectors for five days of discussions at venues across New York City.
Attendees come from industries such as finance, law, renewables, traditional power generation and energy distribution. Energy experts from government and academia also attend.
This year’s discussions will cover topics such as the impact of the growing use of natural gas, the unique value and benefits of the largest commercial steam district heating system in the United States, investment in the electrical grid, and the financing of solar energy.
In all, this year’s program will include 10 official New York Energy Week events taking place from June 15 to 19.
