Capture the Energy 2019

March 13-14, 2019 | Albany Capital Center

The Capture the Energy 2019 Conference will examine the policies and markets influencing the

Governor’s Cuomo’s 1.5 GW target for energy storage deployments in New York State by 2025.

Kauffman, commonly referred to as New York’s energy “czar”, will discuss Governor Cuomo’s Green New Deal and his plans to make New York’s electric grid 100% carbon neutral by 2040 as well as the role of energy storage in achieving that goal.
