New York Power Authority issues RFI for renewables and battery storage


Utility New York Power Authority (NYPA) is seeking to collaborate with renewable energy and energy storage developers and operators, as part of the state’s push to deploy more clean energy resources.

The utility has issued a Request for Information (RFI) to ‘understand potential interest and opportunities for NYPA to collaborate with renewable developers, contractors, and companies to develop, own, and operate renewable energy generating projects and storage systems, including solar photovoltaic (PV) energy, wind energy, and battery energy storage.’

The RFI is seeking information for joint development opportunities which will help the utility and the wider state progress towards state-wide decarbonisation and clean energy deployment targets. New York State is targeting 6,000MW of new energy storage by 2030 alongside 10,000MW of solar capacity to hit 70% renewable energy by that year.

Responses need to be submitted by 7 February, 2024.

NYPA President and CEO Justin E. Driscoll commented: “The Power Authority is building on momentum from the completed renewable energy conferral process to now engage with renewable developers directly to identify opportunities in the energy marketplace.

“NYPA’s unique position as an innovative public utility allows us to bring our resources and experience to bear to build projects in timely, economical ways. The results of this RFI will inform the Power Authority’s next steps, advancing a cohesive and efficient transition to a clean energy economy for New York State that will benefit all New Yorkers.”

NYPA serves around a quarter of the state of New York’s electric load while also operating part of its transmission system.

Recent grid-scale projects in the state covered by include an investment tax credit (ITC) sale by Key Capture Energy (KCE) for a portfolio including a 20MW project in New York, and 110MW/440MWh and 23.7MWh (a non-wires alternative) projects being given the regulatory green light.
