United States Rep. John Larson will visit the Connecticut Center for Advanced Technology on Wednesday, Feb. 21 for a press conference starting at 11:30 a.m.
Congressman Larson will be on hand to highlight the five-year extension of the federal Investment Tax Credit for fuel cells, which was signed into law as a part of the Bipartisan Budget Act. Larson has been a forceful advocate for extending the fuel cell Investment Tax Credit, having authored legislation to extend the credit and being an original co-sponsor of the Technologies for Energy Security Act. He is one of the founders of the Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Caucus, where he has been a leader in calling for an extension of the Fuel Cell Investment Tax Credit. Connecticut is a leader in fuel cell manufacturing, and this will have an enormous impact on local businesses and employment.
In addition to Congressman Larson, CCAT President and CEO Elliot Ginsberg, CCAT Energy Director Joel Rinebold, and visitors from FuelCell Energy, Doosan, CT Hydrogen Fuel Cell Coalition members are scheduled to be on hand.
CCAT advances the development, manufacture and deployment of fuel cell and hydrogen technologies throughout the Northeast by working in cooperation with hydrogen and fuel cell companies and federal, state and local governments.
