The future is imminent for AEC 2018, the Advanced Energy Conference that will unite global energy leaders, researchers and entrepreneurs in New York City on a quest for cleaner and smarter energy solutions.
Presented by Stony Brook University’s Advanced Energy Research and Technology Center and a critical mass of major-league sponsors – leading corporations, regional utilities, top research institutions and more – the 10th annual AEC has adopted “The Future of Energy is Here” as its theme and slogan.
No less than “the future of energy on a global scale” blows in these winds, according to AERTC Operations Director David Hamilton, who suggests “the time to bring discoveries and new innovations in clean energy to market has never been better.”
“Decades of research and development in clean energy and alternative energy solutions … will help make this conference a dynamic platform,” Hamilton said Friday, listing solar-gen breakthroughs, electric-powered vehicles, wind-power systems, new battery technologies and sustainable natural-gas tech among the attractions gracing the exhibition floor.
The AERTC operations director has extra cause to be excited about AEC 2018: Hamilton also serves as executive director of SBU’s Clean Energy Business Incubator Program, and eight CEBIP client companies are taking part in the conference as either technical-session speakers or exhibitors or both.
Representatives of Bonded Energy Solutions, StorEn Technologies, and Sulfcrete will speak during conference sessions, while those companies will be joined by fellow CEBIP clients Allied Microbiota, NeuralNet, Energystics, ThermoLift and Urban Freight Corp. on the exhibition floor.
“I’m thrilled by all of the CEBIP clients taking the initiative to be so heavily involved in the conference,” Hamilton told Innovate LI. “Having a large footprint of CEBIP clients on the conference floor signifies the progress CEBIP has made as a business-development program and the amazing progress our clients have made with their technology.”....
