About the Energy & Environmental Technology Applications Center
The College of Nanoscale Science & Engineering's Energy & Environmental Technology Applications Center (E2TAC) was established was established in 1998 with the goal of leveraging key enabling nanotechnologies and infrastructure to support advances for the energy (including energy efficiency, renewable power generation and alternative fuels) and environmental industries. E2TAC's mission is to support energy and environmental technology deployment through accelerated commercialization by leveraging partnerships between industry, government and university. E2TAC employs approximately 40 faculty, scientists, postdoctoral fellows, graduate students, and professional staff. E2TAC partners with over 40 energy related companies including General Electric, Delphi, SuperPower, MTech Labs, MTI MicroFuel Cells, EYP Architecture & Engineering, AWS TrueWind, Plug Power Inc., etc., through its leadership of New Energy New York and other collaborations. E2TAC has a focus in three areas: technology development, education & outreach, and accelerating commercialization.

About the College of Nanoscale Science & Engineering
Created in 2004, the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering is the first college in the world dedicated to research, development, education, and deployment in the emerging disciplines of nanosciences, nanoengineering, nanobioscience, and nanoeconomics. CNSE's Albany NanoTech complex – a $5 billion, 800,000-square-foot (74,000 m2) megaplex that has attracted more than 250 global corporate partners – is the most advanced research complex at any university in the world.
In May 2007, CNSE was ranked the number one college in the world for nanotechnology and microtechnology in the annual higher education ranking by Small Times magazine.
CNSE’s complex, also home to the New York State Center of Excellence in Nanomaterials and Nanoelectronics, is a fully-integrated research, development, prototyping, pilot manufacturing and education resource with a strategic portfolio of state-of-the-art laboratories, supercomputer and shared-user facilities and an array of research centers. Students and faculty work alongside scientists from industry on fundamental cutting-edge research underlying the real-world problems that most concern industry.
CNSE houses the only fully-integrated, 300 mm wafer, computer chip pilot prototyping and demonstration line within 80,000 square of Class 1 capable cleanrooms. More than 2,500 scientists, researchers, engineers, students, and faculty work on site at the NanoTech complex; these include representatives from such corporate giants as IBM, AMD, SEMATECH, GLOBALFOUNDRIES, Vistec Lithography, Toshiba, ASML, Applied Materials, Atotech, Tokyo Electron, and Novellus Systems.
