The voice of clean tech was missing in NH until the NH Clean Tech Council was formed in 2013 as the business group of the NH Sustainable Energy Association (NHSEA), a statewide non-profit - www.nhsea.org. NHCTC is committed to advancing the awareness, deployment, and success of the industry by fueling the development of a viable NH innovation economy that will create new jobs, skills, and investments to strengthen the state’s economy.
As the clean tech industry grows in New Hampshire and nationally, NHCTC is filling the need to place adequate attention and support for the industry. Whether through:
Assisting startups looking to crack into the clean tech industry,
Helping to find capital for existing clean tech companies to grow, or
Being a voice in Concord and throughout the State for the industry on legislative and economic development matters.
NHCTC is helping to expand the presence and awareness to one of the most exciting industries to come along in our lifetime.
The NH Clean Tech Council’s members come from across New Hampshire, representing 17 sectors within the clean tech industry:
Heating & Cooling
“Energy issues are always critical issues to both individual businesses, such as ours, and to the larger New Hampshire business community. NHCTC serves as an important center of energy knowledge and provides us all with a statewide voice in energy matters. For instance, this past year NHCTC’s work on net metering policies in New Hampshire was key to our ability to develop and install a significant solar photovoltaic system at our largest manufacturing facility.”
- David Worthen, Worthen Industries, Inc., NHCTC Member
TALKING NH'S ELECTRICITY FUTURE
"A rapidly evolving energy future requires attention to detail and a deep understanding of the issues. The New Hampshire Clean Tech Council has both, along with the ability to impact policy and provide a voice to citizens and businesses throughout our great State. Their work has helped put New Hampshire on path to a clean energy future, lower energy cost and further build an exciting industry sector filled with opportunity."
- George Bald, Former Commissioner of DRED
