Overview New Energy New York and the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering are hosting the Third Annual New Energy Symposium July 9-10, 2008, attracting prominent players in the energy field from the academia, government, and industry sectors.  The event will feature a Solar Expo and is held at the world-class Albany NanoTech complex in Albany, NY.  The New Energy Symposium offers a unique chance to share industry trends, threats, and opportunities as they relate to emerging energy technologies.  The Symposium also provides the opportunity to meet with executives who take an interest in the future of energy in the United States.

The Solar ExpoSimilar to last year's hugely successful Hydrogen Expo, the Solar Expo is an in-depth look at the solar industry.  We all know the advantages of solar energy technology-increased energy security, a cleaner environment, and significant economic benefits.  So what does it take to implement more solar systems in New York and the United States?  Discussions on national incentives and policy, research, and current investment interest in this area are just some of what will be discussed at the Solar Expo. 

PanelsBoth technical and non-technical panels will be showcased at the Symposium, including Policy, Energy Efficiency, and Hydrogen/Fuel Cells.  The following panels will be included with the Solar Expo: National Initiatives, Research, and Investment Opportunities.

Clean Energy Investment PresentationsSo much of the renewable energy field is spurred by innovative ideas-many of which take years to get off the ground for lack of funding.  The Clean Energy Investment Presentations allow small and start-up businesses the opportunity to present their business plan to venture capitalists on July 9.  The competitively selected entrepreneurs receive feedback from a panel of investors and financial industry experts.  The extent of this impact is far-reaching: entrepreneurs 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. 

How To Participate We are currently accepting CVs for speakers for various technical and non-technical panels.  Venture capitalists or financial industry experts are encouraged to apply to represent their firm at the Symposium's Investment Presentations.  Small businesses are invited to submit a business plan, on which they will be competitively selected for the opportunity to present.
