New Jersey Innovation Institute to host Brightfields 2018

Newark, N.J. — The New Jersey Innovation Institute (NJII), in conjunction with Brownfields Listings, is sponsoring Brightfields 2018, a one-day, national solar energy development event at the campus of NJIT on June 19. This informational and interactive day of solar development is designed for property owners, solar developers and all those interested in advancing solar energy on brownfields and landfills.

The day’s events will include educational sessions and on-site technical assistance to help property owners assess their solar potential and troubleshoot their brownfield issues. Brightfields 2018 will also include a Solar Market Mixer where landowners can meet with solar developers in timed, face-to-face meetings for direct introductions and market feedback.

New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection Acting Commissioner, Catherine R. McCabe, will be the keynote speaker.

Featured NJII Innovation Lab (iLab) speakers include: Dr. Colette Santasieri and Elizabeth Limbrick of NJII’s Civil Infrastructure iLab, and Brigadier General William Marshall (retired) of NJII’s Defense and Homeland Security iLab. Also on hand will be representatives of NJII/NJIT’s Brownfields Program to provide guidance to attendees as they navigate the brownfields cleanup and redevelopment processes.

The event will help those ready to explore the solar energy potential of public or private property and answer questions about solar project feasibility, grant/incentive eligibility and financing, as well as assist those seeking connections to solar developers. Brightfields 2018 will illuminate new opportunities emerging in the dynamic solar development space, present practical know-how, and provide the ideal place to shop a solar RFP/RFQ or prepare for one — with the marketplace potential to spark real action and solar success.
