Manufacturing Forum

Clean Energy & Sustainability:

Opportunities & Resources for Manufacturers

About the Forum

Hilton Garden Inn
235 Hoosick St
Troy, NY 12180

Come connect with resources that can help you to achieve your clean energy and sustainability goals.

FuzeHub’s first Manufacturing Forum of 2022 is for New York State manufacturing and technology companies that want to make their supply chains greener, their operations more sustainable, and their energy usage more efficient.

This April 20th event is also for NYS companies that supply or want to supply clean energy, or that want to develop cleantech or renewable products. Whether you’re looking for business partners or R&D support, you’ll find it here and in-person.

From wind and solar power to green hydrogen and energy storage, New York State is the place where companies like yours are connecting with clean energy and sustainable technology opportunities.

For example, NYS is developing the largest suite of offshore wind projects in the nation. This is a powerful opportunity for companies that are ready to do business and support these exciting initiatives.

Sign-up now and get a seat at the table. This event is organized by FuzeHub and co-hosted by the Center for Future Energy Systems (CFES) at Rensselaer and the Center for Economic Growth (CEG).
