As a convenience to our direct and sister-society engineering membership in downtown Albany, and also to fulfill our non-profit mission in educating state-wide legislative leadership and the public, the volunteers of ASME Hudson-Mohawk Section are once again hosting an "all-day" ENERGY-focused educational program, intentionally executed "on-site" at the heart of New York's state-government, and within walking distance of the state capitol building & numerous state agency buildings.  

Our 2014 Capitol Mechanical Engineering & Energy Symposium will again provide numerous continuing educational and networking opportunities for all Professional, Scientific and Technical workers.

The availability of all key speakers - to provide PDH/CEU credit and training to both licensed and non-licensed mechanical engineers, STEM workers, and members of the public - is firming up, and the initial list below has been established by ASME Hudson-Mohawk Section volunteers:

********************************************************

ASME Hudson-Mohawk Section would like to thank our own volunteers, and all those sister-societies and New York Greater Capital Region organizations that have pledged their financial and human-capital support for our event:

1. The "Fiscal-Year 2015" Volunteers of ASME Hudson-Mohawk Section (Thank you again!);  

We continue to seek additional corporate & sister-society sponsors, and appreciate financial help with this fundraising event, to support our ASME Student Section Scholarships and our other ongoing STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) outreach activities.

The Symposium's focus is to promote the Mechanical Engineering Profession while providing opportunities for continuing education and professional development. The purpose of this event is to raise public awareness of engineers' positive contributions to the quality of life, promote the importance of a technical education including a high-level of math, science and technology literacy among both ASME membership and local citizenry, and to motivate youth to pursue engineering and related careers to provide a diverse and vigorous engineering workforce.

Proceeds from the Symposium will help build ASME Hudson Mohawk Section's Annual Scholarship Fund, for RPI, Union College, HVCC and local high school ME-track students, with our group's goal of making our JP Morgan-Chase "Custodial" fund self-sustaining / "perpetual".

PARTIAL LIST OF TOPICS DISCUSSED AT OUR SYMPOSIUM:

1. END USE: Demand Management, Electric Vehicles, Demand Response & HAN, Energy Efficiency;

2. GENERATION AND STORAGE: Co-generation, Energy Storage, Biomass, Gas, Marine Renewables, Nuclear, Wind, Distributed Generation, Emissions and Environmental, Coal, Geothermal, Hydro, Solar Photovoltaic;

3.
