Albany Capital Center
55 Eagle St, Albany, NY 12207, USA

The New York State Public Service Commission (PSC) and the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA), in cooperation with the LIFE Steering Committee, are proud to announce the LIFE 2020 Statewide Conference will be held on May 19 and 20, 2020 at the Albany Capital Center in Albany, New York. 

Through interactive and innovative sessions, attendees can expect to learn about updates on energy policy, energy assistance programs, emerging clean energy issues and trends, innovative programs and pilots, consumer protections and best practices. The Conference features more than 40 workshops, including valuable trainings for energy industry professionals, community-based organizations, home performance contractors, and attorneys. Exhibitor opportunities are available for organizations looking to expand their outreach to low-income energy stakeholders. We look forward to seeing you at the Conference where you can network with colleagues in the low-income energy field and honor the 2020 LIFE Achievement Award winners. 


Attorney Training: The Public Utility Law Project of New York will provide a continuing legal education training* as a part of the LIFE 2020 Statewide Conference. The training instructs attorneys on the law of "Shared Meter" in New York and the Complaints/Appellate Practice in front of the New York State Public Service Commission. The goals are for the attending attorneys to:

  • recognize a shared meter situation when it occurs, and to know how to avail their clients of the process and remedies to get the situation corrected and any refunds;
  • learn the intricacies of the Public Service Commission's two-tier initial complaint process, and to learn how to seek effective appellate relief after unfavorable decisions in the initial complaint process.

Attorneys and interested parties attending ONLY the attorney training on May 20 will pay a $50 registration fee for the training. Financial assistance is available for attorneys with income at or below $50,000/annual, as required by the New York State Unified Court System. For those attorneys registering for the full Conference, the attorney training is included in the full conference registration fee.


Refund Requests: All requests for refunds must be made prior to April 13, 2020 and sent to the Conference Registrar at LIFE@nyserda.ny.gov. No refunds will be given after May 8, 2020.
