Our multidisciplinary team is dedicated to environmental stewardship, we provide industry best practices to our clients and partner organizations.  We aim to enhance the local CleanTech economy and improve the environmental sustainability of our region.  In 2014, the DOE published a report on the water energy nexus citing the need for joint water-energy policy and better understanding the nexus as it was heavily susceptible to climate change and a matter of national security.  DOE is heavily engaged in the research and development of technologies that can leverage sophisticated data sets to optimize energy and water use in buildings.

HCTI is uniquely positioned to face those challenges, our high performance, patented energy and water solutions are designed to optimize the nexus between energy and water while improving efficiencies and enhancing asset preservation.  Our integrative approach to utility efficiency enables our company to provide a total utility health assessment while mitigating unnecessary capital and operating expenditure.
