Yes, I read this also. I expect that if Plug hist expectations the Fool will join us groupies as a Plug long.
Thanks for the info. This type of saturation is what will make it possible for Plug to become the supplier of hydrogen to retail locations as the hydrogen automobile wave begins and the hydrogen infrastructure takes shape. i
I just want to keep it on top. The idea of Pepsi quenches my thirst. If confirmed this demonstrates wider application and acceptance of Plug products.
Oh c'mon Newsflash, when have you ever done your due diligence? Fact is Volkswagon is one the company's spearheading the new hydrogen economy. They have a partnership with BLDP to introduce home energy fuel stations in South Africa. Honda and Toyota are both pursuing this in Japan. Hydrogen economy will drive Russia bankrupt and minimize Putin.
The Pepsi Bottling Group Invests in New Fuel-Efficient Vehicles Hybrid and Hydrogen Powered Trucks Added to PBG’s Orlando Operations Orlando, FL– The Pepsi Bottling Group, Inc (NYSE: PBG) announced new investments that will improve the fuel efficiency and reduce the emissions of the company’s vehicle
fleet in central Florida. The investments includethe addition of five hybrid electric diesel delivery vehicles and five hydrogen-injected transport trucks in Orlando. The hybrid technology being used by PBG will enable
a 30 percent increase in fuel economy and a 50 percent reduction in vehicle emissions. The company expects to save 2,000 gallons of fuel while eliminating more than 1,200 pounds of nitrogen oxide
emissions and over 150 pounds of particulate matteremissions annually. The hydrogen-injected trucks will enable a 15 percent increase in fuel economy and exceed vehicle emission standards by 11 percent. These vehicles inject small amounts of hydrogen and oxygen into the engine’s air intake, resulting in a shorter burn time that uses less fuel and produces cleaner emissions. The company expects to save more than4,200 gallons of fuel per hydrogen truck and elimin ate over 216 metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions annually
I'm hoping it's Pepsi and am aware that Pepsi is a hydrogen happy company. Read Below
With more than 10,000 vehicles on the road, including both transport and delivery vehicles, Pepsi Beverages Company (PBC) started purchasing hydrogen-injected trucks in 2009, with an initial purchase of 21 units. The company now operates more than 140 hydrogen-injected vehicles on the road today, with more on order throughout the remainder of 2011.
PBC is PepsiCo’s beverage manufacturing, sales, and distribution operating unit in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico. It handles approximately 75 percent of PespiCo’s North American beverage volume. Headquartered in Westchester, N.Y., the company employs approximately 70,000 people.
In addition to the hydrogen-injected trucks, PBC operates hybrid-electric delivery vehicles and delivery vehicles that run on natural gas.
Nuverra sold out rather than go broke. They tried to go public but couldn't pull it off. They tried to compete with Plug in reefer trucks and were badly out classed. As Hyster-Yale said: Nuverra was a concept stage company 2-3 years away from product launch.
PLug has deals with Raymond (owned by Toyota) and if I recall correctly at least one other oem, This could make a buyout by an operation like Hyster difficult. I've been thinking GE is the likely buyout candidate.
Because they could not buy Plug as Plug has several of their competitors as customers. If Hyster had not bought Plug they'd be forced out of the industry.
Have to agree, and I see certainty in taking advantage of low Plug prices. The last best time to buy Plug is now. If upcoming cc hits target Plug p/ps doubles.
Let this proven lying #$%$ slide off the board. Watch out for his new alias as he lost more credibility than a Russian ruble.
Guess yesterday's announcement made a liar out of you. Relion is proving itself to be a viable and venerable contributor to Plug. They're not just making stacks for Plug anymore.
Plug is not in competition with Exxon/Mobil yet. Though there is no way Exxon/Mobil can beat Plug unless they buy Plug.
To quote NY Guy, do your research. Nuvera was privately held. They tried to go public in about 2000 but withdrew the IPO. They were a start up concept company of little threat to anyone. Basically a Plug wanna be. Hyster bought Nuvera because they couldn't buy Plug and because Plug has deals with Hyster competitors. This purchase which actually happened bolsters the case for how good Plug is.
