Albany Law School's Center for Law & Innovation has been awarded a four-year, $250,000 incentive by the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) to help create sustainable networks in New York state that support early-stage companies focused on renewable and clean energy product development.

As part of the incentive, the Center has pledged to provide resources and education to help clean-tech entrepreneurs navigate through the complex legal issues facing start-up companies, ultimately conserving needed capital for technology development and company growth.

"The proposal also incorporates a plan for developing a clean-tech legal network and training the next generation of green collar lawyers to address the needs of the state's future clean energy industries," said the Center's director Annette Kahler.
