Home > Press > UAlbany Nanocollege Hosts 150 Leaders And Executives In Clean Energy For Launch Of ‘ENTREPRENEURIAL BOOTCAMP' Series

Abstract:
In response to the national call to accelerate the development of clean energy technologies and companies outlined most recently by President Obama during his State of the Union address, the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering ("CNSE") of the University at Albany today launched a new initiative designed to capitalize on emerging opportunities in the growing renewable energy market.

UAlbany Nanocollege Hosts 150 Leaders And Executives In Clean Energy For Launch Of ‘ENTREPRENEURIAL BOOTCAMP' Series

Albany, NY | Posted on February 9th, 2011

More than 150 entrepreneurs and executives from renewable energy companies and organizations throughout New York were on hand for the initial installment of the inaugural "ENTREPRENEURIALBOOTCAMP," a six-part series presented by CNSE's Energy and Environmental Technology Applications Center ("E2TAC"). The initiative is part of CNSE's Incubators for Collaborating & Leveraging Energy and Nanotechnology, or iCLEAN, incubator supported by the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority ("NYSERDA"), with additional support for the series from the National Science Foundation's Partnerships for Innovation program.

Energy storage was the topic of discussion at the initial forum, including leading-edge technologies to increase storage capabilities and to enable efficient and targeted energy distribution, while meeting peak consumer demands. Future sessions focus on some of the hottest areas in clean energy, including photovoltaics, energy efficiency, cleantech start-ups, legal and policy issues for cleantech businesses, and cyber-security for smart grid.

"We are delighted to kick off the Entrepreneurial Boot Camp series as a means of supporting and growing New York's clean energy economy," said Dr. Pradeep Haldar, CNSE Professor and Head of Nanoengineering and Director of CNSE's E2TAC. "With the support of NYSERDA and the National Science Foundation, we look forward to providing vital information and resources that will further underscore New York's commitment to building a dynamic green energy economy."

"We're proud to partner with the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering to help encourage New York's next generation of clean-energy entrepreneurs," said Francis J. Murray Jr., President and CEO of NYSERDA. "These young, energetic business leaders are exactly what this state needs to help grow its clean-energy economy and reduce its dependence on fossil fuels."

Panelists for the initial "Entrepreneurial Boot Camp" included Mark McGough, President and CEO of Ioxus, Inc.; James Groelinger, Executive Director, Clean Energy Alliance; Glen Merfeld, Platform Leader, Energy Storage Technologies, GE Global Research; Karim Zaghib, Administrator, Energy Storage and Conversion, Hydro-Québec Research Institute ("IREQ"); Shaun Johnson, Manager of Energy Markets, New York Independent System Operator ("NYISO"); and Unnikrishnan Pillai, CNSE Assistant Professor of Nanoeconomics.
