Alstom to help manage New York City's electricity demand

Sponsored by

As part of a Department of Energy Smart Grid Demonstration Project, Alstom won a contract to deliver Demand Response Management System (DRMS) to Con Edison. Con Edison provides electric service to 3.3 million customers in New York City and Westchester County, New York.

 

Alstom's demand response system, based on its e-terraDRBizNet 3.0 technology, will allow Con Edison to efficiently use consumer loads to manage energy supply and demand, with incentives offered to electricity customers to reduce consumption during periods of peak distribution system demand — such as hot summer days, or to alleviate stress on the distribution system. This demand response management system optimizes existing energy available and paves the way to a reliable grid.                     

In 2013, with more than 8,300,000 square feet of office space under construction, New York City was one of the fastest growing cities in the U.S. Con Edison has 94,000 miles of underground electric cables, plus another 34,000 miles of overhead wires to serve its customers.
