July 18 - 19, 2012
The 2012 New Energy Symposium will convene multi-sector stakeholders to showcase the latest technology in clean energy and discuss hot topics in the field.
Wednesday, May 30, 2012 | 8:30 AM - 6:30 PM
Organizers: Chris Garvin (Terrapin Bright Green), Michel Wahome (The New York Academy of Sciences)
Our intent is to look at the potential data pool for the entire real estate industry and draw out the value between data sets and determine what data we should be collecting in order achieve sustainability and market transformation goals.
Friday, April 27, 2012 | 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM
Organizers: Jin Ryoun Kim (NYU-Poly), Ronald Koder (The City College of New York), Jin Montclare (NYU-Poly), Raymond Tu (The City College of New York), Vikas Nanda (Rutgers University)
Biomolecular Engineering aims to design and engineer biomolecules for therapeutics, biocatalysts, protein-based biosensors, and more. This symposium will emphasize the design of oligosaccharides and proteins for materials and energy applications.
Monday, April 16, 2012 | 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM
Moderator: Bill Ulfelder(The Nature Conservancy. Speakers: Jon Christensen (Stanford University), Rob McDonald (The Nature Conservancy), Phil Stevens (Urban Creeks Council), Marielle Anzelone (NYC Wildflower Week) and Susannah Drake (dlandstudio llc)
There's a new energy across the United States about recapturing nature in cities, but can these efforts rebuild biodiversity? Leading scientists, authors, and urban conservationists discuss the science behind and promise for today’s urban conservation efforts. The third installment of our four-part series Discourses on Nature and Society.
Keynote Speaker: Didier Stevens (Toyota Motor Europe)
Data about energy consumption in buildings can revolutionize energy use and, if analyzed effectively, has the potential to transform buildings' market value. This eBriefing examines 'big data' in the real estate industry and focuses on new systems for energy management.
Moderator: Bill Ulfelder (The Nature Conservancy)
Speakers: Marielle Anzelone (NYC Wildflower Week), Jon Christensen (Stanford University), Susannah Drake (dlandstudio pllc), Rob McDonald (The Nature Conservancy), and Phil Stevens (Urban Creeks Council)
Across the United States, people are newly inspired to recapture nature in cities, but can these efforts rebuild biodiversity? In this eBriefing, leading scientists, authors, and urban conservationists discuss the science behind and the promise of today's urban conservation efforts.
Speakers: Chris Garvin (Terrapin Bright Green), Cliff Majersik (Institute for Market Transformation), and Chris Pyke (U.S. Green Building Council)
There is an increasing focus on policy, standards, and interoperability of building data. Without the proper tools, the virtual tsunami of building data can overwhelm potential users. This eBriefing focuses on refining the data stream to drive green building innovation.
Keynote Speakers: Amos Avidan (Bechtel), Mauricio Futran (Rutgers University), and Eric Toone (U.S. Department of Energy)
The field of chemical engineering—poised at the interface of chemistry, engineering, and biomedicine—is well positioned to solve global challenges. This eBriefing reviews the role of chemical engineering in energy and healthcare research: from new renewable energy sources to improved methods of tissue engineering.
Forest ecologist Nalini Nadkarni, the Queen of the Forest Canopy, explains what 30 years of exploration have taught her about the intimate connection between humans and trees.
We visit the Go Green Expo and look at five interesting ways for city slickers to be eco-friendly.
January 5, 2010
New York Governor David Paterson has set a target of reducing greenhouse gas emissions in the state by 80% by the year 2050. Stakeholders met at the Academy to discuss strategies for reaching this goal.
