AGRION is hosting their 2nd annual Energy & Sustainability Summit in New York City on February 5th and 6th at the Metropolitan Pavilion.

The theme of this year’s Summit is disruption. With increasing energy demand and growing risks brought about by climate change, we cannot afford to stick with old paradigms. The conference will touch upon new alternative financing mechanisms for renewable energy and energy efficiency, disruptive technologies and energy business frameworks for transactive energy, and ways deploy corporate sustainability strategies across different industries.

Conference attendees will get the opportunity to network with other industry experts to develop prospective client relationships and business partners.
Last year, AGRION assembled over 300 leading companies in both the domestic international markets for their 1st Energy & Sustainability Summit. Keynote speakers included Richard Kauffman, New York State’s Chairman of Energy & Finance, and Ralph Izzo, CEO of PSE&G.
