The Energy & Environmental Technology Applications Center (E2TAC) at the College of Nanoscale Science & Engineering (CNSE) is proud to present Energy Storage: Develop Competitive Strategies and Target Markets The first in a six part series of the ENTREPRENEURIALBOOTCAMP

Energy StorageOne of the distinctive characteristics of the electric power sector is that the amount of electricity that can be generated is relatively fixed over short periods of time, although demand for electricity fluctuates throughout the day. Developing technology to store electrical energy so it can be available to meet demand whenever needed would represent a major breakthrough in electricity distribution. Helping to try and meet this goal, electricity storage devices can manage the amount of power required to supply customers at times when need is greatest, which is during peak load. These devices can also help make renewable energy, whose power output cannot be controlled by grid operators, smooth and dispatchable. [Source: Department of Energy]

About the ENTREPRENEURIALBOOTCAMP Developed by the Incubators for Collaborating & Leveraging Energy And Nanotechnology (iCLEAN), the ENTREPRENEURIALBOOTCAMP is a six part series designed to provide insight and education on some of the hottest topics in the energy arena:

  • Energy Storage: Develop Competitive Strategies and Target Markets - February 3, 2011
  • Photovoltaics: How to Identify Investors and Funding Sources - February 24, 2011
  • Energy Efficiency: Build Successful Teams and Strategic Partnerships - March 10, 2011
  • Cleantech Start-Ups: Lessons Learned from Clean Energy CEOs - March 31, 2011
  • Understanding Legal Issues (IP, Governance) and Policy for Cleantech Businesses - April 14, 2011
  • Cyber Security for Smart Grids: Build a Successful Business Plan and Model - April 21, 2011

Each forum will feature expert speakers and panelists within the field.  Though the events do have a stronger emphasis on small and start-up companies, they are designed to benefit anyone with an interest in the topic, not simply entrepreneurs.  Typical participants include representatives from industry, academia, and government.  Panels are designed for maximum audience interaction.  

This program is supported by the National Science Foundation's Partnerships for Innovation program: CLEAN; iCLEAN , a NYSERDA-funded clean energy incubator serving the Tech Valley region; E2TAC at the College of Nanoscale Science & Engineering (CNSE); New Energy New York ; and the Clean Energy Alliance .
