National Grid New York
Rudy Wynter is President of National Grid New York.
Houston was the gathering place for leading energy, industrial, and government executives in mid-November for Reuter's Energy Transition North America. Key industry changemakers met and strategized the path to decarbonization and how to deliver net zero. Public Utilities Fortnightly was at the conference and talked with key changemakers on these important issues and more.
PUF's Steve Mitnick: Why are you attending this conference and what do you hope to get out of it?
Rudy Wynter: If I use a sports analogy, we're in the first inning of the energy transition. We're not in the ninth inning. This is just the beginning. Because it's the beginning, I like many other energy leaders, want to learn as much as I can about what's working and how we can accelerate it.
PUF: As National Grid New York, you are at the leading edge on a lot of developments. Within transmission and offshore wind, there's a lot going on. How do you manage that, and how do you prioritize what to do, and what maybe to hold off on?
Rudy Wynter: First and foremost, we have to think about taking our customers along that journey. Number two, we can't rule out affordability. This is what is on my mind at the moment.
