Welcome to PowerBridgeNY

About Us:

The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) recently awarded three separate $5 million grants to educational institutions in New York State to create clean energy proof-of-concept centers (POCCs). PowerBridge NY is the result of the collaboration of two of the awardee teams. One POCC led by Columbia University includes Brookhaven National Laboratory, Stony Brook University, and Cornell NYC Tech, and the other POCC led by Polytechnic Institute of NYU includes City University of New York. These two POCCs have decided to work together to create PowerBridge NY. As a joint center, PowerBridge NY is better positioned to provide more support for all aspects of technical validation and company formation for early-stage clean energy technologies. In addition, the Center will be able to foster a more robust ecosystem around the clean energy sector in downstate New York.
