15th Annual SyracuseCoE Symposium Explores Frontiers of Clean Energy Innovations
Markets for clean energy solutions are growing dramatically—in New York, across the country, and around the world—catalyzed by innovations in policies and financing that leverage emerging technologies. The 15th annual symposium, “Clean Energy Frontiers: From Lab to Market” organized by SyracuseCoE, New York State’s Center of Excellence in Environmental and Energy Systems at Syracuse University, features the latest results from collaborators across the state and around the country. The symposium will highlight innovations that optimize clean energy and its utilization in buildings, data centers and neighborhood-scale districts.
The symposium technical program will open on Tuesday, Nov. 10, at the Crowne Plaza Hotel with an 8:30 a.m. breakfast and moving on to a full day of keynote speakers—including New York State Energy Research and Development Agency’s Janet Joseph and U.S. Department of Energy’s Chioke Harris—and technical sessions, together with networking opportunities and posters.
“This year the SyracuseCoE Symposium features the strengths of faculty and students from across Syracuse University and SUNY-College of Environmental Science and Forestry for groundbreaking research, development and collaborations in clean energy innovations,” says Edward A. Bogucz, executive director of SyracuseCoE. “We celebrate the strength of this community to address key challenges and opportunities for clean energy innovations for a vibrant future.”
Multi-disciplinary sessions will feature:
- combustion Technologies
- furnaces and fuel cells
- SUNY ESF biofuels pilot plant
- distributed environmental controls
- energy-efficient approach to improving indoor air quality
- energy efficiency innovations in data centers
- adding microgrids to public urban infrastructure
- sustainable urban mobility
- integrating distributed renewables into the grid
On Monday evening, Nov. 9, a reception and student poster competition will be held at the SyracuseCoE headquarters building, 727 E. Washington St., Syracuse. Winners of the poster competition will be announced during the reception, with cash prizes awarded.
