Shaping the energy future with new efficient end-use technologies
Because of an urgent need for investment in advanced utilization technology to address changing markets, in early 2004, Utilization Technology Development, NFP (UTD) was formed. UTD, a not-for-profit corporation, is directed by participating companies, to manage a gas-focused technology program for the benefit of the investors and their customers.
The program, managed by UTD, encompasses technology development and demonstration activities targeted to the residential, commercial, and industrial market segments. The technology portfolio includes gas equipment and appliances, industrial process and combustion systems, distributed energy, and combined heat and power (CHP) systems.
Participating companies in UTD define the program structure and content. UTD supports technology development initiatives in areas dictated by participants. The company works with research partners and other industry organizations to aggressively leverage gas utility investments with supplemental program funding from federal and state government sources and other industry stakeholders.
UTD and its 18 member companies serve over 40 million natural gas consumers in the United States, Canada, Spain, Italy and Latin America. Together we are shaping the energy future with new efficient end-use technologies.
