Rachel Frank will be presenting a performance based on rewilding, an environmental practice that seeks to reestablish the landscape’s former ecosystems and increase sustainability by reintroducing species to areas in which they had formerly thrived but have since gone extinct. In Frank’s performance, actors wearing American bison head masks will symbolically rewild Stuyvesant Cove against the backdrop of the East River and views of Brooklyn and Queens. Performing in Stuyvesant Cove, a park established on land that was once an abandoned industrial site, this performance is part of a larger project, which uses the concept of rewilding to explore how we think about the landscape around us—its past, present and sustainability into the future.
Combined Heat and Power (CHP) systems can help building owners and facility managers generate electricity, save money and ensure the delivery of critical services in the event of a grid outage. Attend NYSERDA’s breakfast to learn about CHP and the financial/technical support available for the installation of CHP systems sized 50 kW and larger. See how buildings count on CHP systems to:
• Generate electricity every day of the year.
• Save money.
• Protect the environment.
• Operate when the grid goes down.
• Provide enhanced reliability over diesel standby generators.
Skytime 2014 / Moon Rainbow is an ongoing series of collaborative Intermedia artworks conceived in 1982 by choreographer, filmmaker, and Intermedia pioneer, Elaine Summers. The project explores the collaborative process with emphasis on the interrelationship between art and technology. Summers’ SKY works have seen many incarnations, varying from site-specific multi-disciplinary performance events, to a web-based concept artwork (skytime.org) – all of which are based on the sky as the origin and continuum of time in the human experience.

After more than a century of thinking in a certain way about electricity and how it is delivered and sold, things are changing. Every day seems to herald a new milestone in renewable energy, and in distributed generation in particular. The role and leverage of the utilities seems like its about to undergo a fundamental change, and in New York State, the NY Sun Initiative is poised to invest never-before-seen sums into expanding the use of solar power through community solar initiatives and microgrid projects.
