WHAT WE DO
BASELOAD / GRID-SCALE PROJECTS
The CT E&T team and its parent company, O&G Industries, Inc., have experience in developing, designing, engineering, permitting, constructing and financing large-scale energy projects.
• Beacon Falls Energy Park
• The Kleen Energy Power Plant
COMBINED HEAT & POWER (CHP)
CT E&T takes a holistic and comprehensive approach to on-site energy development and solutions to maximize energy savings for our clients and host-customers while maximizing efficiency and reducing emissions. In addition to on-site generation of electricity, CT E&T can design and develop combined heat and power (CHP) systems.
CHP systems take advantage of the efficient, clean and reliable technology that generates on-site electricity to meet the site's thermal (heating, hot water and cooling) loads. CHP systems recover usable heat from the electricity generating technology and use it to provide heat, hot water and cooling. By combining electricity and thermal into one system, energy costs as well as emissions are further and significantly reduced.

• University of Connecticut (UConn) Central Co-Gen/Chiller Facility
A "microgrid" is a group of interconnected loads and distributed energy resources that can act together as a single controllable entity and can connect and disconnect from the grid to operate in "grid connected" or "island mode." Microgrids are used by local government entities to ensure that critical facilities (such as hospitals, police and fire stations, water and sewage treatment plants and other municipal centers or commercial centers) remain powered during electrical grid outages. Some states, such as Connecticut, offer grants for such projects. In addition to promoting greater reliability and resiliency, a microgrid project can result in energy savings for customers connected to the microgrid. Further benefits can include economic benefits to the host community such as increased property tax revenue from the generating equipment for the microgrid. Depending on the technology used for the microgrid, the municipality may also meet carbon reduction and renewable energy goals.
As a developer of grid-scale and distributed generation projects, the CT E&T team can evaluate the technical feasibility of such projects, select the best equipment and technology for the project, and design, permit and obtain financing for the project.
CT E&T works with a diverse range of industrial, institutional, commercial and large-scale residential clients to develop on-site energy projects which significantly reduce and stabilize electricity costs. By using modern energy generating technologies, including renewable energy technology, CT E&T develops projects that provide economical, clean and reliable electricity to the project's host customer that provide significant economic benefits and savings, greatly reduce or eliminate the costs of transmission and contribute to the host's clean/renewable energy and environmental goals.
CT E&T can develop and deliver a "turnkey" project to a customer or make arrangements for the customer to enjoy the benefits of the project with reduced or no capital costs or operating expenses on the part of the client. CT E&T can offer flexible arrangements to make the project possible and feasible for clients, such as entering into joint venture agreements with customers or sell the electricity and power to the client through a power purchase agreement ("PPA").
Energy storage using electrochemical battery systems can help balance the supply and demand of electricity. Such systems can work well with intermittent renewables, such as solar and wind. Energy storage systems can optimize electricity costs, serve loads and support the integration of renewables into the grid.
CT E&T can evaluate and develop such projects. The CT E&T team can select sites for such projects, do all the necessary permitting work and arrange for contracting with end users as well as perform the necessary site preparation.
