New Energy New York and the Energy & Environmental Technology Applications Center (E2TAC) at the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering (CNSE) will host the Fourth Annual New Energy Symposium July 8-9, 2009. Last year's event attracted over 400 prominent players in the energy field from academia, government, and industry sectors. The event featured a Solar Expo and was held at the world-class Albany NanoTech complex in Albany, NY.
This year's event will be held at the New York Academy of Sciences' premier building at the World Trade Center in New York City, NY. Due to space considerations, the 2009 New Energy Symposium (NES) will be limited to 300 participants. New Energy New York and New York Academy of Sciences members will receive discounted admission.
In addition to continuing our highly successful Solar Expo, the 2009 NES will again feature the Clean Energy Investment Presentations, where competitively selected entrepreneurs pitch their business plans to a panel of investors and financial industry experts. This format is based on the National Renewable Energy Laboratory's (NREL) annual Industry Growth Forum, a successful model at the national level. The panel will provide feedback to all participants and choose the top three companies. The extent of this impact is far-reaching: entrepreneurs are able to refine their business plans with real-world advice, and the investment community gets a first hand look at what is developing in the energy technology industry.
