In 2015, renewable energy resources supplied approximately 33% of Germany’s electricity demand. Yet, despite the influx of intermittent resources, grid reliability appears uncompromised. What regulatory and technical innovations has Germany implemented to accomplish this feat and what challenges has it encountered along the way? The upcoming event will examine the German experience and the lessons it may hold for New York State. The panel will also provide an update on initiatives underway in New York to help manage an increasingly renewable power system.
Featuring a panel presentation by: Mark McGough, Ioxus; Rutvik Mehta, ThermoAura and Steve Chatwin, EkoStinger, who will share their "Getting Funded" success stories. UVANY is pleased to host the event on Thursday, evening, June 9th to kick off the Business Incubator Association of NYS (BIANYS.com) Annual Meeting on Friday, June 10th.
The idea of solar energy as a renewable resource for business is something everyone can agree on. When high-level concept transforms into specific solution, things can become complex. In this webinar, two experts from NRG’s renewables team will discuss how businesses can navigate through the possibilities and logistics of a solar solution – from choosing relevant technologies to implementing effective delivery approaches. Both are vital in turning the promise of solar power into the reality of a functioning system.
