Success Story: National Grid

National Grid draws on the power of the Partnership to secure the right data.

Buffalo Niagara Partnership member, National Grid, sees great potential ahead for Buffalo’s RiverBend development, highlighted by the SolarCity solar panel factory. National Grid is planning for the infrastructure that is and will be needed as development continues at RiverBend, extending into a large area of South Buffalo.

“SolarCity was the catalyst of attention for us to take a look at what the infrastructure network needs will be across a 3,000-acre area from RiverBend and beyond,” explains Dennis
Elsenbeck, Regional Executive, Western Division, for National Grid. “We turned to the Partnership for help in gathering the data from businesses and stakeholders critical to planning the infrastructure within this target area.”

A collaborative effort.

The Partnership conducted the RiverBend Area Infrastructure Needs Assessment (RAINA), with assistance from the University at Buffalo Research and Economic Development Office.

The RAINA project engaged the community, surveying neighboring businesses, area developers, and others to collect data on future power needs. National Grid will utilize the data to plot growth areas and prioritize points within the network.

RAINA is just one example of how the Buffalo Niagara Partnership is committed to deeper engagement with our members and the community. Learn more about what membership can do for your business. Connect

This project demonstrates not only how the Partnership helps its members, but how their services help the entire community.
