State is Highly Ranked By Fuel Cell Industry Group


A Washington, D.C.-based non-profit outreach group has released a report that ranks Connecticut second in the entire country when comes to being top places for fuel cell companies to do business.


The study released by Fuel Cells 2000 ranks New York, Ohio and South Carolina behind California and Connecticut in its selection of the top five states. The organization looked at how supportive each state is in terms of policies regarding fuel cells and hydrogen and also looked at how many of the renewable energy devices are installed there.

"They all (the states that were top ranked) recognize that establishing a fuel cell-friendly climate brings environmental benefits and jobs to their state,” said Jennifer Gangi, program director, Fuel Cells 2000.

Connecticut received its high ranking because the state has high profile installations of the devices, offers substantial financial support for fuel cell power generation systems and is the headquarters for several major fuel cell manufacturers, Gangi said.
