About iCLEAN
The Energy and Environmental Technology Applications Center (E2TAC) at the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering (CNSE), along with the Hudson Valley Center for Innovation (HVCFI) have created a partnership called "Incubators for Collaborating & Leveraging Energy And Nanotechnology" (iCLEAN), funded in part through the New York State Energy Research Development Authority (NYSERDA). The partnership will enhance and expand the offering of the incubators at E2TAC/CNSE and HVCFI while creating a new incubator at the Saratoga Technology + Energy Park (STEP). iCLEAN will serve clean energy technology start-ups throughout the "Tech Valley", a 19-county region that encompasses the Capital Region, parts of the North Country, Hudson Valley, and Mohawk Valley.

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.
