It is designed to operate as a zero-energy building — hence ZEN — that generates its own power.</p> Wed, 23 Jul 2014 16:08:57 +0000 Dave Lucas 95516 at http://wamc.org Nano Deal Reconstituted Nano Deal Evaporates http://wamc.org/post/nano-deal-evaporates <p>Citing "misinformation in the media" that led to a "misunderstanding of the intent of the application," the Albany College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering withdrew its application to the Albany County Industrial Development Agency for financing for a new building at the Washington Avenue complex.&nbsp;</p><p>The under-construction $200 million ZEN building will house renewable energy and clean-tech research. It is designed to operate as a zero-energy building — or ZEN — that generates its own power. Although located in the Albany city limits, it will generate zero tax dollars.</p> Tue, 22 Jul 2014 22:11:00 +0000 Dave Lucas 95436 at http://wamc.org Nano Deal Evaporates NYS-GE-CNSE Power Electronics Consortium http://wamc.org/post/nys-ge-cnse-power-electronics-consortium <p></p><p></p><p>New York Governor Andrew Cuomo was at General Electric in Niskayuna today to announce an energy initiative to commercialize new technology that will have major implications for the electronics market.</p> Tue, 15 Jul 2014 22:07:00 +0000 Dave Lucas 94916 at http://wamc.org NYS-GE-CNSE Power Electronics Consortium Students Compete For Start-Up Money http://wamc.org/post/students-compete-start-money <p>The SUNY College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering in Albany is hosting the final round of the $500,000 New York Business Plan Competition today.
