First, it's off to Orlando, where a delegation from the NY Loves Energy initiative will set up shop at the world's largest power generation conference, Power-Gen International 2006, at the Orange County Convention Center.

The delegation, led by the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering at the University at Albany, will host a networking reception from 5 to 7 p.m. Wednesday that is expected to draw hundreds of attendees.

Then, in March, NY Love Energy will travel to Las Vegas, for the Power-Gen Renewable Energy & Fuels Conference at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino.

"With more than 170 clean-energy companies involved in a wide range of renewable energy technologies, from photovoltaics and fuel cells to wind power and ultracapacitors, New York is gaining national recognition as a leader in next-generation alternative energy technologies," said Pradeep Haldar, who directs CNSE's Energy and Environmental Technology Applications Center. And the college is happy to lead efforts to showcase them.
