SyracuseCoE Hosts Stakeholders Meeting with Governor Cuomo’s Energy Leadership Team

On December 9th, SyracuseCoE facilitated a meeting of Governor Cuomo’s energy leadership team and principal stakeholders from CNY manufacturing, engineering, and design firms to discuss opportunities to accelerate the adoption of clean energy technologies in New York State through public-private partnerships. Participants examined specific market barriers and recommendations that would accelerate adoption of heat and power (CHP) systems and energy-efficient retrofits statewide.

Energy Team members in attendance included NYS Chairman of Energy and Finance and Chairman of NYSERDA, Richard Kauffman; Commissioner of NYS Public Service Commission, Gregg Sayre; Senior Advisor to the Chairman of Energy and Finance, Greg Hale; Senior Vice President of Strategic Planning for NYPA, Robert F. Lurie; NYSERDA Director of Energy Analysis, John G. Williams; and Chief of Staff to the Chairman of Energy and Finance for NYS, Kate Burson. Syracuse University Chancellor Kent Syverud provided opening remarks.

This is the second time the energy leadership team has convened in Syracuse, following a panel discussion with SyracuseCoE Partners at the SyracuseCoE Symposium in October 2013.
