NY-BEST’s Capture the Energy Annual Meeting and Conference is one of the premier energy storage events in the United States.

Registration is Open


NY-BEST is hosting its 8th annual “Capture the Energy” Conference on March 14-15, 2018 in Albany, NY at the  new Albany Capital Center. The two day conference is taking place just steps from the New York State Capitol building and will bring together leaders from throughout the energy industry to discuss the important role that advanced batteries and energy storage technologies are playing to make the electric grid and transportation system cleaner and more efficient.

The Capture the Energy 2018 Conference will examine the policies and markets influencing the energy storage sector in New York State. There is tremendous excitement around this industry since Governor Cuomo’s recent announcement of a new energy storage initiative and 1.5 GW target for energy storage deployments in New York State by 2025.
