Home > Press > CNSE & NENY Highlight 'Green' Technologies at 7th Annual New Energy Symposium: Cleantech companies converge in New York City on July 18 and 19 to showcase innovations and compete for funding from investment community

Abstract:
Building on Governor Andrew Cuomo's NY-SUN initiative and energy superhighway blueprint, innovative clean energy companies from across New York and throughout the country are presenting their "green" technologies and competing for major injections of funding from the investment community as the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering's (CNSE) Energy and Environmental Technology Applications Center (E2TAC) and New Energy New York (NENY) present the seventh annual New Energy Symposium at the New York Academy of Sciences in New York City on July 18 and 19.

CNSE & NENY Highlight 'Green' Technologies at 7th Annual New Energy Symposium: Cleantech companies converge in New York City on July 18 and 19 to showcase innovations and compete for funding from investment community

Albany, NY | Posted on July 18th, 2012

Tom Birdsey, President and CEO of EYP Architecture & Engineering and Chairman of NENY, said, "The excitement continues to build as the New Energy Symposium, in its seventh year, once again provides unparalleled opportunities for cleantech startup companies to advance their innovations and move us all toward a cleaner, greener future. And it's happening right here in New York."

Dr. Pradeep Haldar, CNSE Vice President for Clean Energy Programs and CNSE Professor and Head of Nanoeconomics, said, "In line with Governor Andrew Cuomo's vision and leadership in building a new New York, the New Energy Symposium offers a prime opportunity to showcase the state as a home for innovative cleantech companies and organizations that are positioning New York as a leader in the growing green economy. Through partnerships between government, academia, and high-tech companies, such as the U.S. Photovoltaic Manufacturing Consortium headquartered at CNSE, the Empire State is pushing the boundaries of developing next-generation clean energy, and setting the pace for the nation in green innovation and economic outreach."

Fifteen cleantech companies, more than half of which are located in New York, have been chosen to compete for investment, with technologies that range from innovative energy storage solutions, state-of-the-art LED light fixtures and vacuum energy to a thermodynamic heat pump, ultracapacitor sheet storage and a fuel-borne catalyst for improved combustion of heating oil.

Each company will present their business plans to a panel of regional and national venture capitalists (VCs), corporate VCs, private equity and angel investors, investment bankers, and government executives. Since its inception, the New Energy Symposium has showcased 58 early-stage cleantech companies that have raised more than $160 million in venture capital and government funding.

In addition to the Investment Pitch competition, the symposium will also feature presentations by leading investors and successful cleantech company executives, as well as the Senior Advisor for Commercialization & Program Director of the U.S. Department of Energy's Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E), Ilan Gur.

The event is being presented in partnership with iCLEAN, E2TAC's clean energy incubator at CNSE; the New York Academy of Sciences; Clean Energy Alliance; National Renewable Energy Laboratory; and Heslin Rothenberg Farley & Mesiti P.C.
