Recently, Farmingdale State College received a grant from DOE encompassing most of the Renewable Energy Technologies, Energy Conservation, Energy Storage, good building practices, advances in automotive technology as pertaining to hybrid automobiles etc. Through this grant and initiatives of the School of Engineering Technology, the College has established a “Renewable Energy and Sustainability Center”.
In the past, the Solar Energy Center at Farmingdale State College has successfully conducted solar conferences under the title Solar Long Island since 2003. It also collaborated with Advanced Energy Research and Technology Center (AERTC) of SUNY Stony Brook in the recent past to conduct these conferences. The funding for these conferences year after year came mainly from the Federal Department of Energy (DOE) under the Million Solar Roofs Initiative and also through generous sponsorships from organizations such as LIPA, National Grid, Farmingdale College Foundation and many others.
The emphasis of these past conferences has been to provide an opportunity for stake holders, governmental agencies, academia and the general public to discuss strategies to remove barriers in the adaptation of the solar technology.
The upcoming conference is organized by the Renewable Energy and Sustainability Center as a step toward expanding on the themes of earlier conferences and exploring all aspects of Smart Grid Technologies to shape our future in Energy Security.
The faculty and staff of the Renewable Energy and Sustainability Center invite your continued support to meet a unified vision through this conference to create an energy secure environment for the future generations to come.
We would like to give special thanks to Jack Harris who is an Assistant Professor of the Visual Communications: Art and Graphic Design department at Farmingdale State College.
He and his students from the Agency 2 class worked diligently to complete the artwork for the Renewable Energy and Sustainability Center logo and our printed conference program.
