  • Plug Power said it expects, “a plethora of global opportunities” from the auto-manufacturing market such as Daimler AG and BMW AG to use fuel cells to power forklifts and other material handling devices in their warehouses. The overall potential of the fuel cell sector is massive as the businesses are looking at alternative energy. The company said it had new orders from car makers such as Volkswagen and BMW, Honda Motors, a new customer and range extenders to FedEx Inc. electric trucks.. Hyundai, South Korea’s largest automaker, works with affiliate KIA Motors on hydrogen R&D. Toyota and Bayerische Motoren ( BMW) have a fuel-cell technology alliance and Honda and GM last year formed a fuel-cell partnership. Daimler Mercedes-Benz, Ford Motor Co. and Nissan Motor Co. are also working together to advance the technology. GENDRIVE can work with many players in Hydrogen It may be the standard. PERIOD

    From Bloomberg we learn that FuelCell Energy Inc., the company that built the world’s biggest fuel-cell power plant, has won a contract to supply 5.6 MW of equipment to South Korea’s largest steelmaker. Posco will use the equipment to build power plants for customers in Korea this year. Posco is building a factory in Korea to make fuel cells using FuelCell’s technology that’s expected to begin production next year. The systems convert natural gas into electricity through a chemical reaction. In February FuelCell completed a 59 MW project in South Korea, the world’s largest facility making electricity with fuel cells.

  • They say FCEL is loosing its largest customer? They are not being left out in the cold. Complete lies. HERE is my proof they are scaling, and getting closer to their largest customer through licensing more. Even the point of loosing money is going to be a lie soon enough. She has no point that are valid if she can read the news lately. IF they make money at 80MW as stated earlier this should fly. The Gyeonggi Green Energy facility, a 59-MW fuel cell park in Hwasung City, South Korea, commenced commercial operation on Feb. 19. The plant consists of 21 2.8-MW hydrogen fuel cells supplied by FuelCell Energy of Danbury, Conn.

    The 5.1-acre facility in Gyeonggi Province, along the country’s northwest coast, is owned and operated by POSCO Energy, the nation’s largest independent power producer. Construction began in late 2012 and was completed earlier this year. The fuel cells run on natural gas converted to hydrogen and also provide heat to the local district heating system.

    “The scale of this installation is contributing to the power and heating needs of an urban population and generating the electricity in a highly efficient and ultra-low emission profile that supports our national renewable portfolio standard,” said Tae-Ho Lee, CEO of Gyeonggi Green Energy.

    POSCO and FuelCell Energy are planning another fuel cell project adjacent to a railroad depot operated by the Seoul Metropolitan Rapid Transit Corp. That 19.6-MW facility, composed of seven 2.8-MW fuel cells, will provide power to the depot and the local grid, in addition to district heating. Commercial operation is expected by the end of this year. The facility is the first of several fuel cell projects planned to comprise a total of 230 MW in the Seoul area.

    As with the Gyeonggi facility, the fuel cells at the Seoul park will be manufactured by POSCO under license from FuelCell Energy as part of POSCO’s drive to position itself in the Korean clean energy market. POSCO is currently building a fuel cell f

    Yesterday was a great time to buy. IT WAS A HEAD FAKE. The string of operational losses that are relatively meaningless at the present time. Just like the street sweeper piece. His points did not address all the changes and new customers& Partners. The stock is heavily shorted and one should expect them to use Seeking Alpha and the like.

    NRG has recognized the future

    by klauswurst96 21 hours ago

    ((((( going POSITIVE))))))) is not speculation. My speculation is his buddies are some of the shorts. I would be covering as this goes higher.

  • The ding dongs should have covered. Germany is leading the way! I remember them saying something like they are profitable at 80MW...... Hello!!! • FuelCell's bottom line is expected to grow at an impressive rate going forward, making the stock a solid buy. FuelCell is seeing impressive growth in its services and license revenue, which grew 76% year over year in the previous quarter. Growth in the company's installed base led to higher service revenue, along with scheduled fuel cell module exchanges. Cowen in Barrons- believe the company is well on its way to becoming EBITDA positive by mid-FY2015 at the latest. We believe upcoming orders with NRG Energy and Long Island Power Authority will give investors a clear path to this level of profitability next year........ If they get the big contract talked about at 30 plus MW this will double. POSCO has already announced two new projects totaling 60MW. FuelCell expects to close 30MW of new orders in H1:F14. A marketing partnership with NRG was signed in Q4:F13; RFPs are expected in four states from utilities or government entities, including existing CA customers . On recent gains being made by FuelCell, as well as peers Ballard Power , and Plug Power (, Stone commented, We believe a common element for the group is that they represent emerging technologies, which, after many years of development, are transitioning toward profitability.

  • 70 MW of fuel cells annually and will be able to report profits when that volume increases more than 80 MW ((( profits fool)))))) shorts are going to be done soon. The range players from 2 to 2.5 will fade in time. Then we will have a great big break out. cover soon.

    - Search german+fuel+cell+plants images . Peter Detwiller 1) costs have continued to fall as technologies improve. This is particularly the case where fuel cells are used in combined heat and power applications and one can get total efficiencies in the 90% range.
    2) natural gas prices in the U.S. have fallen, reflecting abundant availability and offering a cheaper underlying fuel supply.
    3) fuel cells offer the promise of something that has been in short supply for many Americans lately: a reliable and consistent source of electricity (the few installations in the Northeast with fuel cells fared well after Hurricane Sandy).
    4) fuel cells can be located close to consumers, with a very limited environmental footprint and relatively minimal space requirements.
    5) scale drives volume, which lowers prices dramatically. Between scale and efficiency gains, costs have fallen four-fold in the last decade. 6) Europe needs energy = Global trends have helped fuel cells along recently. 7) I think our timing is good to come up with cost-competitive clean infrastructure plays, which is what FuelCell Energy does.” 8) The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) highlighted the startling fact that the U.S. power network of 5,800 major power plants and 450,000 miles of high voltage transmission lines is aging rapidly

  • They don't live in the real world. They have no valid points considering the huge mass of money going into the sector. They use out of context statements and don't finish the sentences of the price coming down to regular gas. In no way they can be accredited to using due Diligence not acknowledging world situations and government mandates, regulations and incentives. In Germany new energies are a must and booming. Plants are popping up all over Europe. FCEL and PLUG are slated to make money. He continues to rely on out dated theories and information. Backward looking date seem to occupy most of their arguments. Unfortunately the street don't see the disconnect in what is really happening before the stocks double. The Cowen analysts upped the stock “outperform,” from market perform, and increased their price target on the stock to $3.
    • FuelCell shares experienced a bump yesterday after analysts at Cowen said they expect the company to become EBITDA positive by the middle of next year due to increasing stationary fuel cell power technology penetration.
    • FuelCell's end market is growing rapidly, while it is winning over customers across the globe, strengthening its prospects.

    It could be anybody,ANY Industry. In manufacturing, the making of many products use heat and molding products that pollute the air. Forklift pollution can be controlled and not add to the problem. This releases toxic vapors are monitored by the government. Air Quality is a big deal. People don't realize the fumes from fork lifts add up to toxic levels. After people realize the long term cost of their equipment and fines can be reduced the stock should blast off.

    URAPIZZASH!T Heres what he said #$%$. One prime example is what I call the NEXT BIG THING...a zero-emission hydrogen fuel cell sedan we’ll launch to the public in California next summer.

    It’s an electric car...but instead of carrying around a huge, expensive battery, it carries compressed hydrogen gas…and a relatively small battery.

    As needed and on-demand: a fuel-cell stack mixes two elements abundant in nature ...hydrogen with oxygen...to produce electricity that powers the vehicle for about 300 miles on a single fill-up which takes about three minutes.

    So it has the range of today’s conventional cars without lengthy re-charging… while emitting only harmless water vapor...the best of BOTH worlds.

    We’ve reduced the cost of the fuel cell powertrain by 95%...and we’re confident we can reduce the cost further.

    So, what about the cost of hydrogen?

    Well, according to Department of Energy estimates, the cost of hydrogen fuel will initially be higher than gasoline...but longer term...it will come down and be more economical.1

    Based on those numbers, we estimate that to fill our fuel cell sedan to go 300 miles initially will cost about $50 and then go down to about $30. Strong buy

    people just waking up. The stocks fell to low to its future. A disconnect most likely do to over aggressive shorting. The companies making money should wake every body up. I feel they have a niche in the energy sector and enough bright minds are on the solutions.

Any time a stock goes up like PLUG did I would be skeptical..... Don't get me wrong 999 I am LONG ))) Did my DD and will argue any short on its future. He does not have the time to study all the new developments and changes to shipping hydrogen and multiple wind and solar solutions. They are motivated with PUTEN being an #$%$.

    The German Federal Government's Energy Concept 2050 sets out guidelines for an environmentally sound, reliable and affordable energy supply.

    For the first time it defines Germany's pioneering strategy for the era of renewable energy, and has the necessary flexibility to allow for new technical and economic developments. Regular and targeted monitoring will allow unproductive developments to be recognized and rectified at an early stage.

    The energy mix of the future is to be composed mainly of renewable energy, and renewables are to progressively replace conventional sources in a dynamic mix. Smart grids and innovative storage technologies are to enable the integration of renewable energy.
