Albany County Executive Daniel McCoy, Albany Mayor Kathy Sheehan, and the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering Chief Executive Officer Alain Kaloyeros today announced a three-way financing agreement for the Zero Energy Nanotechnology (ZEN) building currently under construction on the college’s Fuller Road campus.

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 — hence ZEN — that generates its own power.

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. 

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.

The Albany College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering is positioned to merge with the SUNY Institute of Technology in Utica. A new college would be created.  A draft summary of the merger plan, obtained by the Utica Observer-Dispatch, says the new school would be called SUNY Institute for Nanoscale Science, Engineering and Technology, or SUNY INSET.  Expectations are the merged institution's Marcy facility would provide the Mohawk Valley with the strong, technologically trained workforce it needs to attract more high-end technology companies.
