  1. Community Day

    Saturday, November 01, 2014

    The Colleges of Nanoscale Science and Engineering at SUNY Polytechnic Institute will host its annual Community Day on Saturday, November 1. Community Day will offer guests a unique opportunity to receive a firsthand look at CNSE's Albany NanoTech Complex, which is the most advanced research enterprise of its kind at any university in the world: an ever-expanding $20 billion, 1.3 million-square-foot megaplex that attracts corporate partners from around the world and offers students a one-of-a-kind educational experience.

    Both adults and children will have the chance to interact with CNSE faculty, students and staff, and to participate in a variety of activities that promote a greater understanding of nanotechnology, including

    • Tours of NanoFab Xtension's (NFX) cutting-edge 450mm cleanroom facilities
    • Tours of Tech Valley High School
    • Hands-on polymer experiments
    • Cleanroom gowning demonstrations
    • Kid's Corner featuring child-friendly activities relating to nanotechnology
    • Nanotechnology overview presentations
    • Undergraduate and Graduate information sessions
    • Displays showcasing research in CNSE's constellations, including health care and energy

    Additionally, Community Day events will be held concurrently at SUNY Polytechnic Institute's Computer Chip Commercialization Center (Quad-C) in Utica, part of Governor Cuomo’s ‘Nano Utica’ initiative, and CNSE's Smart System Technology and Commercialization Center of Excellence (STC) in Rochester.

  9. Reducing the Cost of Capital for Renewables: Tax Credits, MLPs, REITs and others

    Wednesday, November 20, 2013

    Wednesday, November 20th: 8-9 a.m.
    New York University School of Law
    Faculty Club, D'Agostino Hall
    108 W 3rd St.
    New York, NY

    CLE Available. Breakfast Provided.

    John Rhodes, President, New York State Energy Research and Development Authority
    Eli Katz, Partner, Chadbourne & Park LLP

    Moderated by Paul Francis, Distinguished Senior Fellow, NYU Guarini Center

    The primary mode of federal fiscal incentives for renewable power is through the Production and Investment Tax Credits. However, many renewable energy developers are not fully able to utilize these credits by themselves and so use tax equity to raise capital, thus increasing the cost of capital for their projects. There has been considerable discussion recently about using corporate structures (Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) and Master Limited Partnerships (MLPs)) that pay no federal tax as a way to decrease the cost, and increase the accessibility of capital for renewable projects.

    This panel will examine these multiple possibilities for renewable finance and discuss which might be the most effective method to decrease the cost of capital.

  10. Fuel Cells for Portable Power

    Tuesday, July 17, 2012

    Fuel cells for portable power show great promise in meeting the ever-increasing power and energy requirements of portable electronic devices and are quickly gaining market share. However, large scale commercialization will depend upon improvements to fuel cell performance and durability, as well as cost reductions. This webinar will focus on recent R&D advancements in direct methanol fuels and their use in portable power. Researchers at Los Alamos National Laboratory will discuss advanced materials and the development of new methanol oxidation catalysts, hydrocarbon membranes with reduced methanol crossover, and improvements to component durability. Researchers at the University of North Florida will focus on a "passive-water recovery" membrane electrode assembly (MEA), which eliminates the water recovery components, and results in a small, lightweight direct methanol fuel cell (DMFC) power supply. Finally, researchers at Arkema will present their polymer electrolyte membrane design for direct methanol fuels which blends poly(vinylidene fluoride) with a sulfonated polyelectrolyte. Register to attend the webinar.
