Showcasing Commercial Viability of Clean Energy

The Connecticut Clean Energy Fund's Operational Demonstration Program encourages the establishment of innovative renewable energy technologies throughout Connecticut, with maximum funding up to $750,000.

The goal is to make apparent the feasibility and economic benefits of new technology from such clean energy sources as fuel cells, wind, solar, wave and tidal energy, ocean thermal energy, biomass, landfill gas, and run-of-the-river hydropower. Hydrogen generation and storage technologies are also supported.
