Press release from: German Center for Research and Innovation

The U.S. and German, public and private sector investment in Smart Grid technology has increased significantly over the past decade. How will the transition to Smart Grid technologies and practices affect people’s lives? Energy experts will discuss this important topic at the German Center for Research and Innovation New York on November 2, 2016.

New Yorkers have experienced firsthand how an electricity disruption can have a domino effect - a series of failures that affect transportation, communications, and security. A smarter grid adds resiliency to electrical power systems and makes them better prepared to address emergencies, such as severe storms, earthquakes, heat waves, and terrorist attacks. In addition, the Smart Grid is one way to address an aging energy infrastructure that needs to be upgraded or replaced. It has the capacity to increase energy efficiency by enhancing awareness among consumers about the connection between electricity use and the environment. What kinds of standards and regulations govern smart grid technology? What kind of cybersecurity threats exist with respect to the smart grid and how vulnerable is the smart grid to these threats? What are some of the best practices in smart grid security and resilience? These are just a few of the issues that will be addressed by our distinguished panelists.

On November 2, 2016, at the German Center for Research and Innovation New York, four energy experts will discuss the Smart Grid. Dr. Christian Höpfner is the Executive Director at Fraunhofer CSE where he is responsible for all strategic, financial and contractual aspects. Mr. Andrew Martin is the Risk Analysis Branch Chief at the Federal Emergency Management Agency FEMA Region II. Mr. Daniel Spitzer, a Partner at Hodgson Russ LLP, concentrates his practice on issues involving environmental law, renewable energy, sustainable development, land use and municipal law. Mr. Bala Ram is Vice President of SAP in California and is responsible for the HANA Global Center of Excellence, bringing new innovative scenarios to customers.
