The New York Independent System Operator (NYISO) today released its annual Power Trends report, which provides an in-depth look at the forces shaping the future of the New York State electric grid.

The 2016 report examines shifting patterns of electricity use, a growing need for investment in transmission infrastructure, persistently low natural gas prices, and public policies promoting renewable and distributed resources. These dynamics are all combining to reshape the energy landscape, the report finds.

“How people think about and use electricity is changing as quickly as the technology that generates and delivers it,” said Brad Jones, NYISO President & CEO. “Our grid operations and electricity markets are transforming to serve consumer needs, address public policy goals, and meet rigorous requirements for electric system reliability.”

The annual Power Trends report also serves to promote awareness and understanding of the key forces and factors facing New York’s energy future. Among the major conclusions for this year, the report highlights: Changing Energy Usage and Moderating Peak Demand, Transmission as Enabler, Enhancing Environmental Quality and Cultivating Green Power, and Integrating Distributed Energy Resources.
