Four Years of Breaking Down Industry Barriers
New York Energy Week breaks down barriers across the historically siloed sectors of the energy industry to catalyze the advancement of the energy industry. Unlike traditional business conferences, New York Energy Week's distributed hosting model enables industry's leaders to facilitate conversations on the key challenges and opportunities faced by the energy sector with other market participants, government agencies, research firms and other members of the energy community.
Harnessing New York City's role as the hub of global commerce and finance, as well as New York state's prominent position as a driver of energy policy innovation with its Reforming the Energy Vision (REV) initiative, NYEW's previous years have featured thought leadership from industry stakeholders including the US Department of Energy, Tesla, UK Trade & Investment, Morgan Stanley, Google and OPower, to name a few. Just as New York is innovating across the energy landscape, New York Energy Week is helping steer the dialogue regarding policy, business, technology and culture in our changing energy landscape.
New York Energy Week 2016 sponsors and hosts include Con Edison, NYSERDA, PA Consulting Group, Energy Focus, DLA Piper, The Spry Group, National Grid, Toshiba, GE Energy Financial Services, CME Group, Deloitte, Stroock & Stroock & Lavan, Danish Cleantech Hub, NYU School of Professional Studies Center for Global Affairs, ACRE, Goldman Sachs, and EnerKnol partner RTO Insider.
