EP June Forum: Cleantech Startups at 15 Metrotech Center

Urban Green Council's Emerging Professionals will hold their June Forum at NYC ACRE's new Brooklyn location, The Urban Future Lab. The lab is the home of an extraordinary community of entrepreneurs focused on clean technology innovation - particularly energy, sustainable infrastructure, water and transportation.  With growing commitments to environmental and energy goals at the city and state level, there is an increasing market attraction towards the cleantech sector in New York City.  Join Urban Green Council’s Emerging Professionals to learn from innovators and entrepreneurs at The Urban Future Lab on June 10.


The panel will feature speakers from the following organizations: 

HEVO Power is developing a wireless EV charging network for commercial fleets in collaboration with NYU Poly. Their technology reduces commercial fleet operator's transportation costs, provides more control of distribution operations, and relieves range anxiety. EV’s reduce fuel costs by up to 80% when compared to diesel, and eliminates the problems associated with plug-in charging. Simply put, their innovative charging network allows drivers to seamlessly park and power up.

Radiator Labs is an early-stage start-up out of Columbia University developing a radiator retrofit for steam heating systems. The Radiator Labs system allows steam heating systems to turn convective heat transfer on or off at each individual radiator location. In addition to saving up to 30% of a buildings heating bill, they grant an apartment owner direct control over their apartments heat.  Radiator Labs is the Grand Prize recipient of the 2012 MIT Clean Energy Prize, and is a New York City Greentech 50 company.

Sistene Solar  designs and builds handheld solar tiles that come in a variety of colors. We offer, for the first time, design flexibility, infinite customization and seamless integration with street furniture products, including bus shelters, information panels and bike share stations. They are the LEGO of solar - mix and match tiles to achieve infinite eye-catching designs. Sistine Solar is the winner of the 2013 MIT Clean Energy Prize (Renewables Track) and recipient of Fraunhofer's TechBridge Award (funded by the Dept. of Energy).
