The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority recently announced its plans to invest in green energy technology for two Buffalo-area companies, which will total up to $700,000 and focus on reducing fossil fuel use and greenhouse gas emissions.
The two companies receiving the grants from NYSERDA are ENrG, which will receive $500,000, and TAM Ceramics, which will receive $200,000. The investments will give the companies the opportunity to further expand and refine their manufacturing processes related to green energy pdoucts.
"By investing in clean energy power technologies, we are not only helping to improve power reliability and reduce electricity costs, but we are also helping to grow the state’s clean energy economy," said Francis Murray Jr., president and CEO of NYSERDA. "These promising projects can lead to new technologies that produce important economic and environmental benefits."
The NYSERDA is also part of a partnership that will bring a green data center to the Center for Advanced Material Processing at Clarkson University in Potsdam, New York.
The goal of the initiative is to showcase how the use of wind, solar, hydro and other renewable powered data centers can transform data centers of the future.
