Founded in 2009, Northeast Ohio’s advanced energy cluster was formed to support the more than 500 companies and organizations actively engaged in advanced energy research, development and commercialization. The effort has now focused on energy storage, the sector that represents the largest addressable market for Northeast Ohio. Core stakeholders include Case Western Reserve University, FirstEnergy and NASA-Glenn Research Center, with strong corporate partners like Johnson Controls, Rockwell Automation, ABB, Parker, GrafTech, and Energizer. Our goal is to develop a vibrant energy storage business environment in the region through networking, recognition, sharing and sector advocacy.
Helping support this work is the region’s innumerable strengths in the fuel cell industry. To this end, our region is home to component and materials suppliers, stack and systems integrators, equipment and service suppliers, and centers of research preparing the fuel cell workers of tomorrow.
