  1. Very interesting conference. I have been at several conferences in California but never knew about this one. Thank you!

  2. It will be interesting to see how things play out in New York. It has been the leader of the financial world and energy seems like a natural fit. Good information. Thank you!

  3. The United States needs to be more aggressive with energy policy and with various programs if they are going to remain a world leader. Glad to see such a lineup for this event.

  4. It is good to know that there are so many opportunities in New York in energy. Appreciate the information.

  5. I was supposed to go to this the year the hurricane hit. I can see that I missed out on quite an event. It is good that New York is back on track. I will try for next year. TY!

  6. Upstate, New York has needed such a financial boost for decades since the hotels went downhill. Hopefully, the energy sector can revitalize places like the Catskills.

  7. I used to live in Buffalo and moved to NC where the opportunities for small business owners are sparse. Glad to see that things have drastically changed for the better! Time to head back up north!

  8. I’ve been following your show for a few years now, June. Loved your interview with Morten Albaek. Great guy, indeed!

    Europe has been so far ahead of us. I’m glad to see opportunities opening for wind again. For a while there, I didn’t think we would move forward. Thank you for a very informative interview. Looking forward to attending next year. Hope to see you there!

  9. It’s about time that the market opened up for renewable energy. Especially after the disaster with Solyndra, solar finally has a chance to thrive.

  10. The number of innovative technologies that are reducing energy consumption are amazing. New York is making so much progress in the energy sector. It couldn’t happen at a better time! I am going to check out the Start Up New York program as well. It has been hard since the economy tanked to get moving again. This looks like a hopeful opportunity to get going again. Thanks for the information!

  11. There is a conference in So Cal that is similar but not quite the same. This looks like a solid group of speakers. Looking forward to the conference.

  12. I’m from Gravesend and after Sandy, energy storage to me is critical. I look forward to learning more about what New York is doing in a post Sandy environment. Jersey seems to be more aggressive but then again Christie is probably going to run for president.

    I’ve seen a lot of storage companies pushing their tech but I guess it is a big process to get through to the powers that be until it becomes available. There have been a few conferences but from the looks of this one, it seems like all of the right players are in the right place. I am going to plan for next year in NYC.

  13. I just saw your tweet on twitter, June. Please post the information as soon as you have the dates for next year. I would like to attend. This was just too short notice. Keep up the good work!
