When you think about solar panels, a New York City rooftop is likely not the first place you envision. But NYC’s high costs of electricity and progressive renewable energy policies make going solar in the five boroughs not only feasible, but economical.
NYCEDC is seeking an operator with a large entrepreneurship network, proven business-development success, and experience with securing and managing real estate to develop and launch the Urban Technology Growth Hub.
History was made in NYC on July 6, 2013, when Solar Impulse landed at John F. Kennedy International Airport, becoming the first aircraft to fly across the United States using only solar power. The Solar Impulse will be on display free to the public this weekend at JFK Airport. Please register for either Saturday, July 13th or Sunday, July 14th if you'd like to be a part of this historic event!

Each summer, New York's top clean technology startups come together to pitch to a panel of the industry’s leading investors. This year the event returns to the New York Academy of Sciences for the 7th Annual New Energy Symposium on July 18-19, 2012.
