Letter From CCIA
On behalf of myself and the CCIA team, we want to assure our members and supporters that we are here for you. Like you, we are looking forward to when we can return to a more normal situation, even if our new “normal” will be quite different. We’ve worked to transition many of our services and programs to virtual formats and continue to pursue cleantech advocacy. CCIA remains committed to supporting its members and stakeholders as we navigate this period, which also requires that we are flexible and adapt to your changing needs. We also are optimistic about the resiliency of our cleantech community to rebound, renew, restart, and recover. Colorado cleantech has a lot to be proud of and a bright future. Out of this shared experience, our core values have been reaffirmed as collectively we respond to this crisis and plant seeds for a brighter future in the recovery to come. United, we’ll weather this storm together.

Hydrocosm provides sustainable, pressurized water-powered hydrogen electrolyzer systems of various sizes for deployment in fleet depot applications for municipal governments, industrial and agricultural irrigation operations. The process is simple: Tap the pressurized water flowing through existing pipes. Use that water and excess pressure to create clean electricity to power hydrogen production electrolyzers and dispensing stations. The location of these systems is at multiple points in water operations where the infrastructure exists to afford the electrical load and water required to create “just-in-time-hydrogenÒ” for fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEV).
