13th Annual Symposium of Energy in the 21st Century @ The Links
Apr 21 @ 7:30 am – 2:00 pm

How Can We Still Reach Our Renewable Energy Goals?

The award winning Symposium has been cited as one of the most important conferences on energy policy in New York and the Northeast. Attendees come from New York as well as many other Northeastern states. The gathering is in an informal atmosphere that creates a particularly dynamic and rich environment for all traditional partners and the public at large explore critical energy issues with experts. There are no breakout sessions and no tabling, just interesting cutting edge presentations and discussions.
