The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) held an Advisory Board Meeting for its clean energy proof-of-concept centers (POCCs) on June 3 at the Academy. Now in their second year of operation, the POCCs run programming to help inventors and scientists turn their high-tech, clean energy ideas into successful businesses by going through an immersive commercialization program that lasts for more than year. The POCCs are led by Columbia University and the New York University Polytechnic School of Engineering, which have collaborated to form PowerBridgeNY, and High Tech Rochester, which has formed NEXUS-NY. The ultimate goal is to create more New York State-based businesses in clean technology.
