Connecticut's Hydrogen Economy

Its proponents says the day of 'commercial, viable and real' hydrogen power generation is closer than ever

The Connecticut Clean Energy Fund (CCEF) announced December 5 that it would accept applications for on-site distributed generation projects, making $21 million available for installation of clean and renewable energy in Connecticut facilities.

This program is designed to encourage businesses, factories, hospitals, and universities to install electric generators based on sustainable resources.

"CCEF's On-Site Distributed Generation (ODG) program is the most recent addition to a line of CCEF programs already in place," explains Charles Moret, managing director of marketing for Rocky Hill-based Connecticut Innovations Inc. (CII), which administers CCEF. "The earlier programs were created to support financially the installation of solar photovoltaic units in Connecticut commercial and residential locations."
