“Let them catch that spark about energy and math and science, right from the get-go.”  Ken Daly, President, National Grid New York, is talking about children who haven’t even started kindergarten, but who he envisions as future National Grid employees and customers.

The College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering (CNSE) in Albany will soon host both pre-K and high school students, in a concerted effort to get students of all ages learning about clean energy solutions and renewable technologies.

At National Grid, we are investing $1 million in economic development grants to Albany’s Tech Valley. We’re excited that our partnership with the city and college will help us integrate more renewable energy into the grid.

On this Connect21 video series, “catch that spark”, with Ken, Dr. Pradeep Haldar, VP of Entrepreneurship, Innovation and Clean Energy Programs, SUNY Poly CNSE, and Mark Eagan, CEO Capital Region Chamber of Commerce.

Here are a few more projects you can look forward to learning about:

- Clarkson University’s micro grid project in Upstate New York
- Northport VA Medical Center
- Downstate New York overview

We’ll feature a new video around every three weeks, so be sure to check back often. We hope you’ll give us your feedback in the comments section below as you take the series’ tour. The future of energy belongs to all of us, and we want to hear your voice.
