March 14, 2002 by Jeff Shepard

ZTEK Corp. (Woburn, MA) announced that it has been selected as a finalist by the Connecticut Clean Energy Fund to team with the Renewable Resources Group LLC (RRG, Newington, CT) to receive funding for a demonstration of ZTEK's 25kW solid-oxide fuel cell (SOFC) system. Under the proposal, ZTEK will manufacture and supply a 25kW integrated SOFC and hydrogen reformer system. It will also participate in site preparation and be responsible for system installation, commissioning and service.

"This is an exciting opportunity instrumental to the growth of the fuel cell industry," said Michael Hsu, president and founder of ZTEK. "This selection reinforces our belief that the ZTEK solid-oxide fuel cell is an industry leader in producing low-cost, clean and efficient energy useful and beneficial to the public. The potential for using waste heat from the fuel cell for the cooling and heating needs of buildings will provide additional economic value and make it very attractive to consumers."
