(WALLINGFORD, CT) – Developing state, federal and private sector partnerships would enhance and support zero-emission transportation goals in New England and continue expansion of Connecticut’s clean technology research and development. With that in mind, investors and stakeholders in the hydrogen and fuel cell industry — including original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), suppliers and service providers in the Northeast — will be on hand to demonstrate a fueling station and hold a roundtable discussion on obstacles and opportunities facing the industry. Please join us this Thursday, April 5 in Wallingford, for the Northeast Hydrogen Highway Summit starting at 10:45 a.m.
The hydrogen and fuel cell supply chain had a significant bearing on the region’s economy in 2016 and 2017, contributing over $1.4 billion in revenue and investment; more than 6,600 direct, indirect and induced jobs; and labor income of approximately $615 million. The summit’s goal is to continue the momentum to maintain the state’s position as a global leader for this clean energy industry.
