The Energy & Environmental Technology Applications Center (E2TAC) and Albany Law School are proud to present: Cyber Security for Smart Grids: Building a Successful Business Plan and Model The final in a six part series of the ENTREPRENEURIALBOOTCAMP
What is Smart Grid? It is estimated that over $150 billion is lost each year in power outages on an electrical system that hasn't been .pdf"ated in nearly a century. The implementation of smart technologies is revolutionizing the production, transmission, and consumption of electricity in the United States and affecting homes and businesses across the nation. The transformation to a smarter grid will increase the reliability, efficiency, and security of the country's electrical system; encourage consumers to decrease their electricity use; reduce greenhouse gas emissions; and allow the integration of all energy sources into the grid of tomorrow. On April 21, a panel of experts discussed the issues and challenges of cyber security and smart grid business development in New York State.
We would like to thank Albany Law School for their generous sponsorship of this program. Agenda 3:00 - 4:30 pm: Panel Discussion
4:30 - 5:30 pm: Cocktail Reception

About the ENTREPRENEURIALBOOTCAMP
Developed by the Incubators for Collaborating & Leveraging Energy And Nanotechnology (iCLEAN), the ENTREPRENEURIALBOOTCAMP was a six part series designed to provide insight and education on some of the hottest topics in the energy arena:
Each forum featured expert speakers and panelists within the field. Though the events had a stronger emphasis on small and start-up companies, they were designed to benefit anyone with an interest in the topic, not simply entrepreneurs. Typical participants included representatives from industry, academia, and government. Panels were designed for maximum audience interaction.
This program was supported by the National Science Foundation's Partnerships for Innovation program: CLEAN; iCLEAN, a NYSERDA-funded clean energy incubator serving the Tech Valley region; E2TAC at the College of Nanoscale Science & Engineering (CNSE); New Energy New York; and the Clean Energy Alliance.
About E2TAC The Energy and Environmental Technology Applications Center (E2TAC) was created in 1998. It was established as an active expansion of the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering to work with companies in the rapidly emerging energy and environmental industries. E2TAC provides a critical platform for CNSE to leverage its intellectual power base and state-of-the-art infrastructure to provide an applications-targeted resource supporting technology development, leading to the integration of nanoelectronics and nanotechnology in advanced energy and environmental applications.
