The Advanced Energy Center (AERTC.org) at Stony Brook University, a partnership of academic institutions, energy providers and industrial corporations dedicated to innovative energy research, education and technology deployment, has announced that New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg will deliver a keynote address at the organization’s Advanced Energy 2012 conference. The conference takes place from Tuesday, October 30 through Wednesday, October 31; Bloomberg will deliver his keynote on the second day of the conference.
Dedicated to the advancement of clean energy, Bloomberg has launched several initiatives throughout his tenure as mayor to improve the environment and combat the impact of global climate change, from establishing laws to make buildings more energy efficient to replacing taxis and NYPD patrol cars with hybrid vehicles. Bloomberg’s efforts to improve sustainability extend to his company Bloomberg LP, the world’s leading financial news and information company. The organization has emerged as a global leader in sustainability, committed to reducing its carbon footprint through energy efficiency and the use of renewable resources.
Advanced Energy 2012 will be held at the Jacob Javits Center in New York City from Tuesday, October 30 – Wednesday, October 31, 2012. In addition to keynote addresses and panel discussions featuring global leaders, the conference also includes a program agenda of 14 distinct program tracks covering a wide range of subjects in energy and technology, with more than 90 individual sessions.
“Advanced Energy 2012 brings together a dynamic lineup of this nation’s preeminent energy thought-leaders from industry, academia and government,” said Quiniones. “By participating in this forum, NYPA has the opportunity to share its work, under Governor Cuomo’s initiatives, for upgrading aging transmission, and the greater use of renewable energy sources and energy efficiency measures.”
