While the New York Public Service Commission may seem to be driving the Reforming the Energy Vision initiative, it is public demand for more control over their energy choices that is the true driver, speakers said at the Infocast New York REV Summit last week.
David O’Brien, vice president of BRIDGE Energy Group, said New York’s initiative is a start. “Are regulators fully prepared to tackle these issues or to look at the complexity of all this? My feeling is not necessarily,” he said. “But what I really like about REV is its comprehensiveness.”
