1C- Energy Storage for the Clean Energy Future

Stuart Nachmias

Vice President, Energy Policy & Regulatory Affairs
Consolidated Edison Company of New York, Inc. and Rockland Utilities, Inc.


Energy storage is coming! Some storage will be connected directly to the electric grid and will be managed by the utility. Some will be at customer locations providing direct benefits to customers as well as the electric grid. Benefits include resiliency, managing wind and solar variability, and managing energy bills. Where to put storage can be challenging, especially in congested cities where space is at a premium. Learn about some of Con Edison’s innovative projects and ideas at this session.
