Renewable Transmission Development - New York

Status: Completed

Client: Transmission Developer

Summary: ESAI authored a study assessing the potential development of a transmission line from upstate New York in Zone F to Manhattan and New Work City, Zone J. The line would carry renewable energy from Zone F. ESAI advised on status of transmission development in NY, the pros and cons of such, and the general willingness of various groups in New York state to support such development in concert with the leaders of a New York regulatory agency, and modeled impacts on the system from withdrawal and injection perspectives.

  • Provided analysis and insight based on ESAI’s understanding of the power, renewable, capacity and transmission markets in New York.
  • Worked closely with executives to develop themes and issues for the study in a clear and concise fashion.
  • Authored study to be presented to potential investors and financial partners.
  • Overview of risks: financial, regulatory, and otherwise.

Results: Report was well received and is being used as described.
