Renewable Energy

CCAT Energy works in cooperation with state and local government, renewable energy advocates/organizations, and other stakeholders to develop and promote solutions with advanced renewable energy technologies. CCAT Energy seeks to develop initiatives to identify and assess potential renewable energy applications including low wind speed technology on agricultural sites, and low head hydropower. CCAT Energy also seeks to develop a monitoring program to collect and disseminate non-proprietary data on fuel cell and hydrogen technology operations.

Connecticut Agriculture Wind Initiative – CCAT Energy seeks to develop and administer a high efficiency technical wind initiative specific to Connecticut, working in cooperation with the state government, educational institutions, and a stakeholder working group.  The goals of this initiative would be to identify, analyze, and assess low speed wind technologies and appropriate resources and sites for the application of appropriate wind turbines in Connecticut. This initiative would focus on potential lower speed and lower height applications that are “behind-the-meter” on agricultural land, telecommunications sites, and other community accepted locations.
 
CCAT administers Connecticut's Biodiesel Production and Distribution Grant Program, in partnership with the Department of Economic and Community Development, which is a great new funding opportunity available to qualified Connecticut biodiesel producers and/or distributors looking to advance and strengthen their business capabilities. A total of $4.0 million dollars have been made available by the State of Connecticut to support the program and provide grants for the production of biodiesel and the construction and/or modification of biodiesel production, storage, and distribution facilities. Funds will be administered by CCAT from December 1, 2007 to December 31, 2008.

         
The Program was developed in order to increase economic growth opportunities for Connecticut's clean energy sector and promote a greater use of biodiesel; advance technological innovation in biodiesel; increase public confidence, support and awareness for biodiesel; support the development of biodiesel production and distribution equipment and facilities; and reduce dependence on fossil fuel consumption, and greenhouse gases emissions.
 
Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Monitoring Initiative – CCAT Energy seeks to develop and administer a technical fuel cell initiative in cooperation with fuel cell and hydrogen technology manufacturers, educational institutions, state government, developers and customers. The goals of the fuel cell and hydrogen monitoring initiative would be to encourage technical innovation, facilitate commercialization, and build consumer confidence for this advanced renewable energy technology. The goals would be achieved through the monitoring, collection and dissemination of non-proprietary data on fuel cell and hydrogen technology operations.

Connecticut Low Head Hydropower Initiative – CCAT Energy seeks to develop and administer a low head hydropower initiative specific to Connecticut, working in cooperation with the state government, educational institutions, and other stakeholders.  This initiative would identify and assess low head hydropower technologies and appropriate resources and sites for the application of hydropower technology in Connecticut. This initiative would focus on potential low head hydropower technology and resources at existing impoundment structures and water discharge pipes.
