The New York Sustainable Energy Conference and Trade Show is a professional business event designed to provide developers, architects, contractors, energy consultants, bankers and others involved in the commercial building trade an opportunity to learn about the latest advances in non-fossil fuel energy solutions and how they can be integrated into new and existing building projects.

​The show will feature exhibits by companies that manufacture, distribute and install commercial solar and heat pump equipment, energy consultants who can advise architects and developers on appropriate technology, and experts in finance with creative methods to help pay for sustainable energy installations.

The show will also feature nationally-recognized expert speakers who will be presenting on various types of non-fossil fuel sustainable energy systems, advanced construction techniques and the marketing of "green" projects that utilize sustainable energy.

​The event will be held at the beautiful Doubletree by Hilton hotel on the banks of the Hudson River in Tarrytown, NY.

​This is a unique business event that everyone involved in commercial building in Westchester County and the surrounding area should attend.
