Wednesday, Aug. 2, State Sen. Kevin Parker delivered the keynote address at the third Annual New York Energy Revolution Summit. The summit took place at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, located in Times Square. During the summit, hundreds of energy enthusiasts gathered together to discuss implementation of both the New York REV and the new Clean Energy Standard.

“I enjoyed being a part of the N.Y. Energy Revolution summit,” said Parker. “It gives me the platform to connect with professionals within the energy sector and to learn more about how elected officials such as myself can work with experts to create solutions around clean energy.” He continued, “During my speech I discussed the latest policy developments impacting New York State and how energy experts and elected officials can work together to make a difference.”

“It was a pleasure to have State Sen. Parker deliver the keynote address during the summit,” said Jim Naphas, event designer, Infocast. “As the Ranking Democratic Member on the Senate Energy and Telecommunications committee, Sen. Parker understands the importance of pushing the agenda around solar energy across New York State and the nation. His suggestion that the N.Y. State Legislature work with Gov. Cuomo and his energy team to codify many elements of the NY-REV was enthusiastically received by the audience.”
