  • Proof of Concept Centers: Energy Technology

    It's easier to find people to invest in a great new tech product if you can show that it will be profitable relatively quickly. Unfortunately, that's not so easy to demonstrate. Learn how we're working to change that.

    The Academy and NYSERDA (the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority) are teaming up to drive investment in the new technologies that will help revolutionize the way we produce and use energy by supporting Proof of Concept Centers - institutes that bridge the gap between academic laboratories and working companies. In this podcast we learn about Proof of Concept Centers: what they are and how they have the potential to create a sea change in the way new technologies are turned from ideas into realities.
