AERTC Announces 2008 Advanced Energy Conference

11.07.2008
Relevant, promising, and visionary solutions to the global energy crisis-- from solar power to bio-fuels-- will be unveiled and explored at the Advanced Energy Conference on November 19 and 20 at the Hyatt Regency Windwatch in Hauppauge, NY.

With the world's existing supply of oil projected to last between 25-40 years, technologies for alternative fuels are now a critical component of a nationwide energy policy. Relevant, promising, and visionary solutions to the global energy crisis-- from solar power to bio-fuels-- will be unveiled and explored at the Advanced Energy Conference on November 19 and 20 at the Hyatt Regency Windwatch in Hauppauge, NY.

The conference is expected to draw nearly 1,000 attendees including leading researchers in alternative fuels, top government officials, legislators, energy policy-makers, environmentalists, and leaders from the worlds of business, academia, and the not-for-profit sector. Among other solutions to be explored related to decreasing oil reserves are Renewable Energy such as solar, wind, bio-fuels and geothermal power; Energy Efficiency in areas such as efficient power transmission and distribution, energy efficient data center operations, and the benefits of energy efficient building programs such as the United States Green Building Council’s LEEDS Certification; Conservation; Smart Energy; Distribution Networks; and, Nanotechnology Applications for energy storage systems (peak load supply and portable applications such as batteries).

The conference is being produced by the Advanced Energy Research & Technology Center at Stony Brook University, a public-private partnership dedicated to the advancement of energy research and technology deployment. This is the second Annual Energy Conference produced by the Advanced Energy Center. In addition to over 50 energy provider exhibits from several countries, the Energy Conference will feature a series of internationally recognized speakers who will share energy research, energy technologies and applied energy technologies with global application.

“Technology and innovation are critical to resolving the energy challenges we face today,” said Robert B. Catell, Chairman of National Grid US. “The Advanced Energy Conference will bring together the best and the brightest from across our region, our nation and the world with one goal in mind – energy solutions for a better tomorrow.”

This year’s conference will broadcast portions of the business, academic and keynote presentations on its website, www.aertc.org. The conference will be attended by business managers, program managers and technology entrepreneurs and will continue to be a venue for the formation of new alliances between private and public entities. Attendees will also be able to participate in discussion groups regarding the Advanced Energy Center and government programs, which can be mobilized to support private initiatives.

“As our global thirst for energy continues to grow, it is imperative that we explore new and alternative ways to satisfy our electrical needs," said LIPA President and CEO Kevin S. Law. "The Advanced Energy Conference will give us a first hand look at the bold initiatives and cutting edge technology that will ultimately allow us greater access to clean and renewable energy while reducing our dependence on fossil fuels."

According to Dr. Yacov Shamash, Vice Chair of the Advanced Energy Center, “This annual conference is an opportunity to share best-in-class research and technology from around the globe. We are delighted that leaders from all avenues of the Energy community will come together to advance energy solutions for our society.” Dr. Shamash is also the Dean of the College of Engineering & Applied Sciences, and Vice President of Economic Development at Stony Brook University.

"The Advanced Energy Conference provides a great opportunity for innovation in bringing together the technical and industrial communities. The scope of this conference reaches beyond the Long Island region to address issues of national concern at the most advanced level," said Dr. W. Hubert Keen, President of Farmingdale State College.

About the Advanced Energy Center

The long standing relationships that have been forged between large research institutions such as Brookhaven National Laboratory and Stony Brook University, as well as regional utilities and research institutions such as National Grid and LIPA, have provided an ideal platform for initiating a true public and private partnership devoted to the advancement of energy research and technology deployment. Established in 2006, the Advanced Energy Center celebrated a successful, two-part conference last year, which attracted over 900 attendees combined. There are dozens of research projects already underway, many of which can be viewed on the Center’s website www.aertc.org. The headquarters of the Advanced Energy Center, which will be constructed at the Stony Brook Research Park, will strive to achieve a Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) platinum rating, which is designated by achieving maximum energy efficiency and minimum environmental impact in five distinct categories: sustainable site, water efficiency, energy & atmosphere, material & resources and indoor environmental quality.
