Titled “Brooklyn: The Future Is Sustainable,” the event will focus on building projects relying on renewable energy technologies — from wind- and solar-powered lighting to geothermal heat — at sites like the Brooklyn Navy Yard, Brooklyn Botanic Garden, Brooklyn Bridge Park and Broadway Stages.
In addition to Myer, the featured speakers will include Andrew Kimball, president of the Brooklyn Navy Yard; Scot Medbury, president of the Brooklyn Botanic Garden; John Salmon, director of business development for Solar Energy Systems; and Dr. Gerry Gorman, COO of LumiSolair.
The event’s lead sponsor is NationalGrid. Other sponsors include Con Edison, Brooklyn Navy Yard, Broadway Stages and Solar Energy Systems.
The event will take place from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. in the National Grid auditorium at 1 MetroTech Center at Jay Street in Downtown Brooklyn.
Space is limited, so advance registration is requested by close of business on Tuesday, April 24, according to Lori Raphael, RED director for the Chamber of Commerce. Admission is free with prior registration.
