NYSERDA and Clarkson University’s CAMP Cosponsor Albany Symposium

The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA), in conjunction with Clarkson University’s Center for Advanced Materials Processing (CAMP), recently hosted a symposium in Albany, N.Y., on "Advanced Materials for Reduction of Greenhouse Gas."

The event included presentations from academia, industry, and state organizations involved in the effort to curb greenhouse gases in New York State.

Frank Murray, president and CEO of NYSERDA, presented the keynote address "Importance of GHG Reductions and the Role Advanced Materials Can Play."

Dinner speakers included New York State Deputy Secretary for Energy Paul DeCotis, New York State Foundation for Science, Technology and Innovation (NYSTAR) Executive Director Edward Reinfurt, and Clarkson University President Tony Collins.

The symposium was held to discuss NYSERDA’s administration of the recently created Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI) fund of more than $100 million dollars per year, a portion of which will be used to research, develop, and fund industrial applications aimed at reducing New York State’s carbon footprint.

NYSERDA plans to issue calls for work in this area of research in this calendar year.

Clarkson University launches leaders into the global economy. One in six alumni already leads as a CEO, VP or equivalent senior executive of a company. Located just outside the Adirondack Park in Potsdam, N.Y., Clarkson is a nationally recognized research university for undergraduates with select graduate programs in signature areas of academic excellence directed toward the world’s pressing issues. Through 50 rigorous programs of study in engineering, business, arts, sciences and health sciences, the entire learning-living community spans boundaries across disciplines, nations and cultures to build powers of observation, challenge the status quo, and connect discovery and engineering innovation with enterprise.
