New York Research Center

According to NY governor Pataki, New York is building a research center to look into how to conserve energy, decrease dependence on petroleum and reduce emissions. This center will be built in the Saratoga Technology + Energy Park about 20 miles north of Albany.

The only taker so far is a Canadian high-tech battery manufacturer. So, their first goal may be converting hybrids plug-in hybrids. The research center will open in 2008.

Pataki also announced that the state would spend $10 million to convert 600 state vehicles to plug-in hybrid vehicles. After the state project is done, the facility will be made available to private companies to retrofit vehicles.

Earlier in the day at the former Seneca Army Depot in Central New York's Romulus, Pataki announced an ethanol refining company, Empire Biofuels, will invest $87 million to build a refinery there. It will produced 50 million gallons of the corn-based vehicle fuel and create 60 jobs, Pataki said.

The company will receive a tax credit of up to $2.5 million a year based on production.
