Paul DeCotis to discuss regulatory and policy updates
West Monroe's Paul DeCotis, a leader in our Energy and Utilities practice, will be speaking at the EUCI New York Power Summit.

Panel: Regulatory and Policy Update

As a part of the New York Public Service Commission's comprehensive "Reforming the Energy Vision (REV)" initiative, the New York Public Service Commission is reforming the state's power industry and regulatory practices. REV will lead to regulatory changes that promote more efficient use of energy, deeper penetration of renewable energy resources such as wind and solar, and wider deployment of "distributed" energy resources such as microgrids, on-site power supplies, and storage. What is the current status and future of REV? How are distribution system operators (DSOs) affected by current policies and regulations and what changes will emerge?
