CCAT recognizes that energy use affects the success of all organizations. We lead planning and policy initiatives that focus on sustainable, reliable energy use and innovative technologies to offset energy demands.
To advance a hydrogen-fuel cell economy within Connecticut and the Northeast, we administer collaboratives such as the Connecticut Hydrogen Fuel Cell Coalition and the Northeast Electrochemical Energy Storage Cluster.
CCAT also works with the state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection and the U.S. Department of Agriculture to assist rural municipalities in applying for the state microgrid program to support their mission-critical power loads. We validate and analyze how a generation facility could be developed in a microgrid configuration to increase environmental performance, lower energy costs, and improve power reliability.
