New York State embarked on REV with the aim of building a clean, more resilient, and affordable energy system for all New Yorkers. This shift to a clean, distributed, intelligent, and mobile energy system not only supports meeting climate goals, but also other local priorities including improving air quality, reducing congestion, and ensuring the future economic competitiveness of a community.
Within our communities, New York State electric and gas utilities are looking to make it easier for New Yorkers to choose low-carbon, grid-interactive solutions that provide electric grid benefits and make progress toward the State’s clean energy goals.
A Connected Communities utility partnership idea could be to:
Welcome to our Connected Communities Innovation Sprint. Our goal is to help innovative companies and utilities deploy demonstration projects, new technology, and diverse business models that advance New York’s REV goals within a Connected Community theme.
REV Connect Innovation Sprints focus attention on timely and specific utility needs for innovative energy partnerships. We invite companies to submit ideas.
Top submitters will receive expert feedback, be invited to an in-person meeting with New York utilities, and benefit from potential matchmaking with one or more of the utilities to pursue innovative partnerships.
The Connected Communities Innovation Sprint kicks off with a webinar, closes with a submission deadline, and culminates in an in-person, invitation only workshop.

New York State has ambitious clean energy goals, including:
New York utilities are looking for innovative ways to integrate new solutions, including market-based approaches to increase clean energy and beneficial electrification adoption as well as to provide customers advanced tools and smart home solutions. Utility programs are also augmented by multiple initiatives run through NYSERDA, other state entities, and non-profits.
Utilities can receive shareholder performance incentives—known as earnings adjustment mechanisms (EAMs)—for spurring reduction in carbon emissions. Utilities can also earn new revenue—known as platform service revenues (PSRs)—by exploring new value-added services.
