The technology and the adoption of alternative energy have advanced greatly since the first Symposium on Energy in the 21st Century 13 years ago.  Director Rhea Jezer remembers the state of the industry then.

“It’s very exciting when I look back, what we were talking about then, where we went out and saw our first wind turbine and someone came and showed us what a solar panel was and everyone oohed-and-ahhed.  So in 13 years we’ve progressed a tremendous amount.”

  Central New York has a number of environmental groups working on a range of issues, from climate change to alternative energy, pollution in the environment to solid waste reduction, green building to alternative transportation.  The group plans to use its annual meeting Thursday, May 12th, to try and do some speed dating and see if groups might have more impact by working together.
