Our Partner:


The Northeast Electrochemical Energy Storage Cluster is a network of industry, academic, government and non-governmental leaders working together to provide energy storage solutions.  The cluster is focused on the innovative development, production, promotion and deployment of hydrogen fuels and fuel cells to meet the pressing demand for energy storage solutions.  Through this initiative the cluster works to:

  • Accelerate Innovation
  • Improve Development and Production Efficiencies
  • Increase Knowledge & Awareness
  • Accelerate Adoption and Deployment
  • Improve Energy Security & Reliability
  • Drive Economic Growth
  • Protect our Global Environment

The cluster is based in New York, New Jersey, and the New England States.  Its initial formation and development is funded through the US Small Business Administration’s Innovative Economies Initiative and administered by the Connecticut Center for Advanced Technology, Inc. (CCAT).  CCAT is honored to work with our partner organizations to integrate this natural technology development and manufacturing cluster
