JOHNSTOWN, PA., March 19, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- In a move that keeps it close to academia and potential energy partners, Concurrent Technologies Corporation (CTC) has relocated its Pittsburgh office to the new Energy Innovation Center in downtown Pittsburgh. CTC formerly had an office in the Regional Enterprise Tower. As one of the first tenants to occupy the former Connelley Trade School, CTC sees the location as beneficial to its work in the energy arena.
CTC President and Chief Executive Officer Ed Sheehan, Jr. says his company chose the new site because of the ambitious goals of Energy Innovation Center developers. "The Connelley School was built in 1930 and closed in 2004. Its history is remarkable, and I think that Pittsburgh Gateway's plans to reengineer the former school as a green building housing academic, business and nonprofit organizations are also remarkable. We are pleased to continue to maintain a downtown Pittsburgh location and contribute to the vibrancy of the region."
John Bartholomew, Chief Ethics and Compliance Officer, is CTC's point of contact for its Pittsburgh location. John points out that the Energy Innovation Center is a 6.6 acre urban complex that seeks to promote energy-sector research and innovation and create direct and deliberate bridges to job creation, entrepreneurship and urban economic revitalization. "These are goals that we at CTC share and want to support."
Dan Markiewicz, Senior Principal Engineer and technology platform leader for energy storage, notes that CTC has been in the energy field for more than 18 years and has operated the National Defense Center for Energy and Environment since its inception in 2003. "We are excited about being in this facility with universities and others who are involved with science and technology research and development," said Markiewicz. "CTC has a history of partnering with academia to transition technologies to the commercial space. Currently, we are investigating electrolyte additives, battery component improvements, and the ability to level-load plants. These activities include all aspects of inquiry and study from modeling and simulation and prototype development to single-cell testing and stack scale-up."
