The state University at Albany's College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering is hosting the New Energy Symposium June 22-23.

The event is being presented by New Energy New York, a consortium of companies working on alternative energy products.

More than 200 energy industry executives are expected to attend the symposium held at the College of Nanoscale Sciences and Engineering, located at the Albany NanoTech research complex.

Sen. Charles Schumer (D-NY) will present an overview of national energy policy at the forum.

"I am excited to have the opportunity to speak to so many new energy companies from across the state at once. These companies create a win-win situation for New York state: not only are they on the cutting edge of technology that can help us break our dependence on foreign oil, but they are creating jobs here in the local economy," said Schumer.

Pradeep Haldar, executive director of New Energy New York and director of E2TAC said the symposium "will showcase the alternative energy technologies that are critical to reducing U.S. dependence on fossil fuels, as well as New York's leadership in the development and growth of energy-related technologies and companies."
