Twelfth Annual Symposium on Energy
in the 21st Century
 
a resounding success! 
 

  Dear Colleagues and Friends,

RHEA JEZER, Ph.D
Presiden, Energy 21 LTD

We did it again! The Twelfth Annual Symposium on Energy in the 21st Century packed the hall. On April 8, 2016, over 350 people gathered to learn, participate and network. Many have attended all twelve years! An outstanding group of speakers talked about cutting edge energy policy and prospects and plans for the future in our state, our region and the country. After lunch many took advantage of really exciting.

 

This Symposium has been noted as one of the most important energy conferences in the Northeast. Held each April in E. Syracuse, NY, the Symposium provides a venue for a diverse population to join together in a non-partisan multi-disciplinary conversation and learning experience on sustainability and renewable energy.

 

The attendees range from students to highly professionals, all interested in the future of renewable energy. CEOs of corporations, top leaders of environmental organizations, state commissioners, sustainability directors, engineers, architects, city planners, representatives from the offices of elected official both on the federal, state and local levels, farmers, town supervisors, mayors, municipal planners, college faculty and students as well as interested citizens.

 

It is hard to explain why this Symposium has been so successful for so many years, with attendees from all of New York State as well as other Northeastern states. I would like to share with you two recent emails I received immediately following the Symposium which might explain the success of this event.

 

From one of our speakers: "the event is one of those sought for opportunities that fosters the form of dialogue that will lead to a sustainable climate and economic solutions and reduce those moments that allow opposition to be the dominate point of the discussion.  I think it has become too easy to draw lines in the sand and depend on lobbying to drive sound policy; your approach was a welcome alternative to demonstrate that collectively we can solve many challenges and optimize many opportunities." Dennis Eisenbeck, National Grid Regional Director Energy Solutions. 

 

From an attendee: "Dear Dr. Jezer, I just wanted to thank you so much for putting together such a fantastic symposium last Friday. It was beyond inspiring and gave me hope that maybe some of our problems could be solved if we collectively worked toward a sustainable future. You were so gracious with every introduction and made us all feel like family. Just a huge congrats for such tremendous effort and success. Looking forward to next year!" Sara Schultz, Buffalo, NY

 
 

Many of those who attended asked for the power point presentations of the speakers. Check out the side panel for those who have shared them.

 

We are now in the process of planning the next Symposium which will be held on April 21, 2017. During the year we periodically provide a newsletter with updates on the most current information on renewable energy as well as job & grant opportunities. If you are not receiving the newsletter, make sure to contact me with your email.

 

Be sure to check out our sponsor list. We are a not-for-profit and could not produce the Symposium and newsletter without the continued support of our sponsors. Please make sure to thank them and better yet, become a sponsor or patron. Check the sponsors link and sign up.

 

As usual, it is always a pleasure hearing from you and I look forward to seeing you next April, if not before.
