"CTE's Proposals Team worked incredibly hard on a very aggressive timeline to ensure a quality work product was submitted to the CEC. Myself and the entire Phillips 66 Emerging Energy team have been beyond impressed with the CTE team over the past year and look forward to working together in the future. This is now our third grant writing engagement with CTE, and I've greatly enjoyed working with the team on each engagement. We are pleased to be members of CTE and very thankful for the Proposals Team!"
