The Coalition Members
The New Energy New York initiative, led by Binghamton University, brings together a robust coalition of diverse partners across academia, non-profits, community organizations, incubators, and government agencies
NEW JOB OPPORTUNITIES: The New Energy New York team is growing
A comprehensive ecosystem of project initiatives are made possible by the NENY Coalition Members
Creating a first-of-its-kind Battery Technology and Manufacturing Center hosted by Binghamton University in an Opportunity Zone on the Huron Campus in Endicott, NY will help to develop and enable the advanced manufacturing of battery technologies, and establish a robust manufacturing infrastructure to support the battery industry and its supply chain.
Developing a host of coordinated and innovative programs throughout the supported regions is a vital part of this initiative for training the workforce required to support the storage manufacturing ecosystem — with specific programs to promote equity and participation of individuals from underrepresented and marginalized backgrounds.
To support the rapid growth in energy storage projects and the consequent increasing demand for a strong and qualified supply chain, this project will help to implement a strategy for building and supporting a robust storage supply chain throughout upstate New York — including the creation of a supplier catalog and supplier certification program.
EQUITY and Justice:
Collaborating with community-based organizations to address and secure support for barriers — including securing housing, childcare, and transportation — are critical components to this pillar of NENY. Equity and Justice is integrated into all other project initiatives within NENY as it is essential in the development of emerging markets. We aim to prioritize BIPOC, disabled, LGBTQIIA+, veteran, and women populations in education, workforce, and entrepreneurship programming offered through the NENY initiatives.
INNOVATION and Entrepreneurship
Through innovation in the energy storage landscape, we will establish New York State as the premier destination for realizing energy storage technologies and startups ranging from prototyping to scale-up to manufacturing. While leveraging and expanding existing successful programs, we will develop new programs for proof-of-concept support, acceleration of nascent and mature startups, and the development of new incubation models and facilities.
