SUNY Conversations in the Disciplines


SUNY Conversations in the Disciplines - Research and Scholarly Developments in Progressing Toward an Energy-Smart New York.

SUNY and an Energy-Smart New York is one of the “Six Big Ideas” in the State University of New York’s Strategic Plan. Research, development, and deployment of smart energy technologies is of vital interest to the future of New York State, the country and the world. SUNY has established itself as a leader in the development of innovative technologies to improve energy efficiency at all levels of scale, from integrated circuits and small batteries to equipment and systems for generation and storage to optimization of the New York State energy grid itself. Significant research is being done at numerous campuses across the SUNY system, with collaborators from other universities, industry members and the government.

A SUNY Conversations in the Disciplines will be held to examine the state of the research and deployment of energy-smart technologies throughout SUNY campuses and New York State. It will facilitate the exchange of information among SUNY faculty, industry and government representatives to promote collaboration and identify best practices as we progress toward an energy-smart New York. The CID will begin on Monday evening, March 31, 2014 with a reception followed by an opening address, “Where is Smart-Energy Today?”

The meeting on Tuesday, April 1, 2014 will be comprised of three plenary sessions:
1. Smart-Energy Topics in Higher Education and Research
2. New York State Energy Policy
3. NSF Innovation Programs

The first two plenary sessions will be followed by breakout sessions, each with three tracks, in the areas of:
1. Energy Storage
2. Energy Generation
3. Energy Efficiency

Morning breakout sessions will focus on smart-energy research while afternoon sessions will focus on smart energy applications.

The Small Scale Systems Integration and Packaging Center at Binghamton University is seeking abstracts for individual or panel presentations and posters for the breakout sessions listed above.

Registration is required.
