The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) is offering $400,000 for a qualified institution to create a statewide Clean Tech Execs program to help drive interested entrepreneurs, investors and other business leaders to new opportunities in the cleantech sector.

The Clean Tech Execs program will be designed for successful business executives and other leaders who are skilled at running a company but may have limited knowledge about the cleantech world. NYSERDA says the program will expose participants to opportunities in the clean energy technology market, including renewable energy, energy efficiency, cleaner transportation and energy infrastructure, such as energy storage and the smart grid.

Through a competitive process, NYSERDA will provide the funding to a business education or economic development organization to develop the program. Proposals are due June 19. Applicants can learn more here.

“Governor [Andrew] Cuomo has initiated innovative programs to spur the cleantech economy in New York State, from Innovation Hot Spots to the NY-Sun initiative,” says Francis J. Murray Jr., president and CEO of NYSERDA. “The Clean Tech Execs program will join a portfolio of business-friendly NYSERDA programs, such as our cleantech incubators and the Entrepreneur-in-Residence program, which further the goal of growing businesses and creating jobs in clean energy and energy-efficiency technology."
