HARTFORD, CT -- Governor Dannel P. Malloy today announced Connecticut has once again been recognized as a fuel cell leader, ranking as one of the top five states by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) in its recent report State of the States: Fuel Cells in America 2014. The hydrogen and fuel cell industry is powering economic and job growth not only in Connecticut but across the Northeast region. Nearly 600 Connecticut companies are part of the more than 1,170 industry businesses in New England, New York and New Jersey. Based on a 2012 Northeast Electrochemical Energy Storage Cluster (NEESC) study, the Connecticut companies are estimated to have generated close to $600 million in revenue and investment annually – half of the $1.2 billion Northeast region total. NEESC is administered by CCAT and funded by the U.S. Small Business Administration.
