Connecticut companies to attend an international tech trade show

Posted by John Mathewson on March 25, 2015

The Northeastern part of the United States has emerged in recent years as a leader in technology, no matter what the field. This is especially true when it comes to new technology in the research, design and manufacturing of hydrogen and fuel cell technology. Connecticut in particular has major companies devoted to this area of expertise.

The regional supply chain of hydrogen and fuel cell technology includes nearly 1,200 companies that are directly involved in the manufacture, development and installation of hydrogen and fuel cell products. In 2012 alone, those businesses in this field contributed nearly $1.2 billion and almost 6,000 jobs to the economy of the Northeast.

Now, Connecticut will show how far it has come in the hydrogen and fuel cell world during an international trade show in Germany later this year. Hannover Messe 2015, which will be held from April 13-17 in Hannover, Germany, is the leading international event for industrial technology innovations.

Thee Northeast Electrochemical Energy Storage Cluster (NEESC) and the Connecticut Hydrogen Fuel Cell Coalition (CHFCC), both organizations based in Connecticut, will be attending the event in April. The purpose is to showcase the made in Connecticut hydrogen and fuel cell products, and bring attention to Connecticut as a leader in this area.

"This is a very exciting trade event for us. Connecticut will be represented well, which demonstrates the state's strong leadership in green technology, especially in the hydrogen and fuel cell industry," said Connecticut Department of Economic and Community Development deputy commissioner Ron Angelo in a public statement.
