Gain key insights into Con Edison's Brooklyn Queens Demand Management Demand Response Project, one of the 10 leading case studies featured in a research report funded by E4TheFuture at click here

Discover key considerations from this leading non-wires-alternatives (NWA) project to deferring the need for traditional electric grid infrastructure upgrades.  This discussion will share insight regarding project identification, procurement processes, benefit cost analysis tool development, and rate case incentives.  Discover key takeaways and lessons learned from this first large program ConEd implemented and how it led to a streamlined approach of identifying and implementing newer projects. Hear how they found different ways to communicate these projects to the market and are working to continuously improve their approach to non-wires solutions, with customers and market partners in mind.
