UAlbany NanoCollege and New Energy New York Present the Fifth Annual New Energy Symposium

Albany, NY | Posted on August 5th, 2010

More than 300 attendees, including leading executives from the energy industry, state and federal government officials, venture capitalists and university researchers, will gather to promote the growth of clean energy and environmentally friendly technologies at the fifth annual New Energy Symposium, to be presented on August 9 and 10 by New Energy New York ("NENY") and the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering's ("CNSE") Energy and Environmental Technology Applications Center ("E2TAC").

The 2010 New Energy Symposium, which will be held in New York City at the World Trade Center offices of the New York Academy of Sciences, is designed to highlight both the importance of alternative energy technologies and New York's leadership in developing and supporting clean and renewable energy companies.

Keynote addresses will be delivered by U.S. Representative Steve Israel, who is serving as Symposium Chair, and Suresh Prabhu , a former federal cabinet minister in India and current Member of Parliament for Industry, Energy and Environment. In addition, attendees will participate in a series of panel discussions that focus on smart grid technologies, clean energy policy and regulation, photovoltaics, and the longevity of energy storage, and feature representatives from the National Institute of Standards and Technology ("NIST"), EnerNOC, National Grid, the National Renewable Energy Laboratory ("NREL"), Veeco, U.S. Department of Energy, Electric Power Research Institute, New York State Energy Research and Development Authority ("NYSERDA") and many more.

The second day of the Symposium will feature a series of Clean Energy Presentations, in which the hottest emerging cleantech start-ups will showcase their revolutionary technologies to an audience of regional and national venture capitalists, private investors, investment bankers, and federal executives. The top three presentations will be recognized and encouraged to participate in NREL's upcoming Industry Growth Forum. And, for the first time, a Clean Energy Entrepreneur of the Year will also be honored.

Tom Birdsey, President and CEO of Einhorn Yaffee Prescott Architecture & Engineering and Chairman of NENY, said, "The New Energy Symposium supports New York's strong commitment to developing alternative energy technologies to provide clean and renewable energy. This annual event offers the ideal arena to facilitate and accelerate the deployment of sustainable energy technologies that will benefit both New York State and the nation."

Dr. Alain E. Kaloyeros, Senior Vice President and Chief Executive Officer of CNSE, said, "The UAlbany NanoCollege, in partnership with New Energy New York, is pleased to present the fifth annual New Energy Symposium, through which government, business and academia will share leading-edge research and critical information that is vital to ensure a clean and sustainable energy future. Driven by unique public-private partnerships and innovative nanoscale technologies, New York is well-positioned to build on its recognized leadership in the alternative energy sector, in the process creating new opportunities in the growing green collar economy."

Dr. Pradeep Haldar, Professor and Head of CNSE's Nanoengineering Constellation, Director of CNSE's E2TAC and Executive Director of NENY, said, "The New Energy Symposium provides a unique platform to discuss emerging trends and new opportunities related to clean and sustainable energy technologies. We look forward to high-level discussions and presentations that will enhance both the technologies and policies critical to advancing renewable energy production, distribution and integration."

About NENY
New Energy New York is a consortium of New York energy-related technology organizations convened to expand and promote energy technology excellence in New York State. Formation of NENY is the direct result of a forum hosted by U.S Senator Charles Schumer in December of 2002 to look at ways the state's high-tech companies could interact to address energy-related technology issues. The idea behind creating a formal consortium of companies to pursue common technology initiatives is to bring attention to the state's leadership on clean-energy resources, and to provide benefits to each of the members through cooperation and coordination of marketing initiatives.

About E2TAC
The Energy and Environmental Technology Applications Center (E2TAC) was created in 1998. It was established as an active expansion of the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering to work with companies in the rapidly emerging energy and environmental industries. E2TAC provides a critical platform for CNSE to leverage its intellectual power base and state-of-the-art infrastructure to provide an applications-targeted resource supporting technology development, leading to the integration of nanoelectronics and nanotechnology in advanced energy and environmental applications.
