Dear Colleagues and Friends,

Rhea Jezer, Ph.D
Director & Chair

We did it again! TheEleventh Symposium on Energy in the 21st Century packed the hall. On April 17, 2015, nearly 400 people gathered to learn, participate and network. Many have attended all eleven 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 tours and trips.

We are now in the process of planning the next Symposium which will be held on April 8, 2016. This Symposium has been noted as one of the most important energy conferences in the Northeast and attendance is capped at 400.Held 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 excitement and warmth in the audience as well as among the speakers is palpable and “electric”, partially due to the fabulous speakers and also to the quality of those who attend.

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.

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 and I will include you.

We are very fortunate to partner with WRVO, our local NPR affiliate, who record our Symposium.
