Utility Innovation Opportunities (old)

New York is looking for innovative solutions and partnerships to modernize its energy system

New York’s investor-owned utilities are actively seeking innovative solutions in the Opportunities by Topic areas. Individual utilities will periodically develop the Opportunities by Utility statements posted here to further describe certain priority business needs. REV Connect also invites related solutions that will help advance REV Goals in partnership with a utility.

Submit your idea to REV Connect if your innovative business model or solution matches the opportunities here – or if you have a breakthrough solution that we didn’t know New York needed.  Submissions will be evaluated for a potential partnership with the State’s utilities. Curious about how to proceed? Learn more about our process and criteria.

REV Connect is hosting its first Innovation Sprint of 2019 focused on Connected Communities.
