The Stony Brook University Advanced Energy Research and Technology Center (AERTC) will host the Advanced Energy Conference 2022 (AEC 2022) at the Marriott Marquis in New York City on Sept. 7-9, 2022.
The conference is the second of a two-part series that follows a virtual event in June 2021, and the theme is “Charting a Course for Energy.” It will bring together industry leaders, academics and representatives in energy policy to explore the future of energy sourcing by showcasing technological innovations, key policy changes and new business models. Informational sessions, workshops, exhibits, demonstrations and networking sessions will make up the three day conference.
With more than 200 speakers, AEC 2022 will look at the latest research and development in renewable energy, batteries and other technologies that are being realized for their potential in advanced energy fields.
“We are delighted to reconvene in person. AEC 2022 is where innovation and opportunity converge,” said Robert B. Catell, chair of the Advanced Energy Center. “It is a place where leaders in energy come to discover the next big thing in renewables and energy technologies. It’s where the discussion begins on charting the course for energy. We are looking to put a great focus on offshore wind and emerging energy technologies, as well as energy efficiency in facilities, advanced transportation technologies, the future of energy storage, and much more on the path forward toward protecting our environmental future.”
Sponsors and exhibitors demonstrating their services and products will have a dedicated convention space for attendees to visit and network during the conference. A highlight for many years, the Innovation Corral, returns to the show floor, allowing start-up entrepreneurs to showcase their new technologies.
Workshops on Wednesday, Sept. 7 are free to attend, with required registration. A welcome reception will take place in the evening.
Presentations on Thursday, Sept. 8 and Friday, Sept. 9, will feature two full days of keynotes, plenaries, panels and speakers who represent leaders in every segment of energy research, policy and business. Stony Brook University President Maurie McInnis will moderate “Perspectives on Offshore Wind Technologies: What’s new in offshore wind?” Thursday at 10:15 am.
Past conferences have attracted attendees from every segment of energy research, policy and business, with participation from the highest organizational levels.
The conference will also include a poster session for undergraduate and graduate students who are conducting research on topics related to energy.
