    The New York Integrated Energy Data Project is Highlighted by Con Edison's Damian Sciano and Leon Bukhman on the latest Energy Central Power Perspectives™ Podcast

    November 29, 2022 - Energy Central


      Recent advancements and modernizations in the utility industry have hinged on the availability of data. Data from across the grid can come in massive quantities, in real time, and require immense plans and assets necessary to analyze and make the best use of it. But those efforts are undoubtedly worthwhile, as they bring about new operational efficiencies, improve options to boost reliability, and more.

      However, just because the world of utility data is valuable does not mean it is easy. Entire departments of the utility industry need to be reworked to think about what data can do for them and how to best utilize the data coming in. Even policymakers and regulators are getting involved in the process, such as the landmark New York statewide energy data integration project. To understand exactly what this entails and how it's preparing New York utilities for the future, this week's episode features two key utility professionals at the frontline of these efforts: Damian Sciano, Director of Distributed Resource Integration, and Leon Bukhman, Project Manager, both from Con Edison. As Damian noted:

      "We have tens of thousands of SCADA points out there. We do very deep analytics, and we've been doing this for decades, to help improve reliability and response on our system. And now, with our AMI rollout, which is our advanced metering infrastructure, we're expanding that tens of thousands of points to millions of points to the customer's meter to keep driving improvements in those traditional areas that I mentioned and to start making big strides in the green energy marketplace and letting customers know what they can do with that data. So super excited about that. And New York state kind of shares that vision. How do we take energy data and put it in a place that's easy for customers to get and help green the economy? So the Public Service Commission issued two orders around data, the Integrated Energy Data Resource, which is going to be that central repository for data. And then, second order and complementary order was the Data Access Framework. And as the name implies, the Public Service Commission recognized the need to control the data and protect it and ensure privacy and cybersecurity."

      This entry into the podcasts, like all of the series episodes, can be found on all major podcast outlets, including iTunes and Spotify, or it can be listened to directly on the Energy Central platform (where we also feature a written transcription if you'd prefer to read). Give it a listen and share your reaction in the comments.
