Bin mir nicht sicher, aber hast Du bei Ballard nicht auch geschrieben, dass
die Firma viel zu hoch bewertet ist. Jetzt hier auch noch negative Kommentare.
Du findest nichts an diesen Firmen, oder??

Gut dass es auch andere wie mich gibt, die an dieser Technologie glauben!
Ich bin und bleibe dabei.

Übrigens, Ballard hat vor etlichen Jahren schon über 100 Dollar an Aktienwert gehabt.

 Gewinne schreiben. Das ist keine dumpfe Phantasie, sondern nur die logische Konsequenz aus den Zahlen 2012 und den Zuwächsen im Vergleich in Q1 + 2 in 2013. Da braucht man kein Hellseher zu sein und ist auch kein "Pusher". Vor allem zeichnen sich nach der Q2 Konferenz - wer es nicht glauben mag, soll sich die PK im Internet anhören - signifikante Aufträge noch für dieses Jahr ab. Ab 90MW Auftragsvolumen fährt FuelCell in die schwarzen Zahlen und dieses ist in 20MW für dieses Jahr erreicht. Zudem das fette Backlog an Aufträgen von über 400 Mio zeigt, dass die Maschine nun langsam aber sicher an Fahrt gewinnt.

 ein. Diese Tage wurde ein Kooperationsvertrag zwischen E.ON und der US-Firma Bloom Energy unterzeichnet und durch E.ON 91 Millionen Euro überwiesen. Auch wenn die Wahl auf den größeren Konkurrenten von FuelCell fiel, hat dieses m.E. positive Auswirkungen auf das Brennstoffzellen-Geschäft insgesamt. Damit wird das Interesse weiter auf diese Technologie gelenkt und 91 Mio ist kein Pappenstiel. Zudem kann dann erwartet werden, dass die Konkurrenten von E.ON - vor allem RWE - auch nicht schlafen und sich möglicherweise eine Kooperation mit FuelCell sichern. Alles in allem - sehr positive Neuigkeiten.

By the way: Bloom wird Ende dieses Jahres die IPO haben und will dadurch vermutlich 500Mio auf dem Kapitalmarkt bekommen. Sicher auch ein interessantes Investment - wenn es soweit ist.

Energy Commission Awards More Than $18 Million to Expand Hydrogen Fueling Stations in California

18 JUN 2013


The California Energy Commission has approved $18,690,000 in grants for projects that will expand the state's fueling infrastructure for hydrogen fuel cell vehicles.
"California has a portfolio approach to investing in renewable and alternative fuel vehicles," said Energy Commissioner Janea A. Scott. "The investments the Commission made in hydrogen fueling today [12th June] can help support Governor Brown's zero emission vehicles executive order, which sets a long-term target of reaching 1.5 million zero emission vehicles by 2025."
These awards were made through the Commission's Alternative and Renewable Fuel and Vehicle Technology Program, created by Assembly Bill 118. For the current fiscal year, the program is slated to invest approximately $90 million to encourage the development and use of new technologies, and alternative and renewable fuels, to help the state meet its climate-change goals. It is paid for through surcharges on vehicle and boat registrations, and smog check and license plate fees.
The state's investments in these projects are safeguarded by matching fund requirements for awardees, and by making payments on a reimbursement basis, after invoices are reviewed and approved.
Hydrogen fuel cell vehicles are expected to play an important role in reducing California's greenhouse gas emissions, and in advancing the Governor's Zero Emission Vehicles Action Plan goals of establishing enough infrastructure to support 1 million ZEV vehicles by 2020, with a goal of having 1.5 million ZEV vehicles on the roadways by 2025.
Fueling infrastructure must be in place to support the successful introduction of these vehicles. Studies suggest that 68 stations are needed by 2017 to support the market. Currently, nine public stations are operating, and about a dozen more are in development in California.
The hydrogen fueling award recipients are:
South Coast Air Quality Management District will receive $6,690,828 to evaluate, test and upgrade publicly accessible hydrogen fueling stations. With the exception of a station in Emeryville (Alameda County), the stations covered by this award agreement are within the South Coast Air Basin, which includes all of Orange County and the urban portions of Los Angeles, Riverside and San Bernardino counties.
Linde, LLC, will receive $4.5 million to install three hydrogen fueling stations in the cities of Mountain View and Cupertino (both in Santa Clara County), and Foster City (San Mateo County). The agreement includes a $3,069,948 match-funding requirement.
Hydrogen Frontier, Inc., will receive $3 million to build a 100 percent renewable hydrogen fueling station in Chino (San Bernardino County). The award agreement includes a $1,615,385 match-funding requirement.
Air Products and Chemicals, Inc., will receive $2,999,172 to install two hydrogen fueling stations and to automate two trailer loading operations for transporting hydrogen for fueling from a production facility in Southern California. The fueling stations will be located in Woodland Hills (Los Angeles County) and Mission Viejo (Orange County). The award agreement includes a $1,614,927 match funding requirement.
Air Liquide Industrial US LP, will receive $1.5 million to build a hydrogen fueling station in Anaheim (Orange County). The award agreement includes a $933,996 match-funding requirement.

Trash to cash: Norway leads the way in turning waste into energy
UK cities pay to send rubbish to Norwegian incinerators, but green campaigners warn of dangers

For a country blessed with bountiful oil supplies, it may appear incongruous. But Norway is importing as much rubbish as it can get its hands on, in an effort to generate more energy by burning waste in vast incinerators.

The Eurotrash business may sound like an unpromising enterprise, but it's one that is increasingly profitable. The UK paid to send 45,000 tonnes of household waste from Bristol and Leeds to Norway between October 2012 and April this year. "Waste has become a commodity," says Pål Spillum, head of waste recovery at the Climate and Pollution Agency in Norway. "There is a big European market for this, so much so that the Norwegians are accepting rubbish from other countries to feed the incinerator."

He refuses to divulge the sums involved, saying only that the market is growing. Spillum is "considering requests" to burn waste from other UK towns. "As a rule we generate about 50% of our income from the fee we receive to take the waste and about 50% from the sale of the energy we create," he says.

Norway is not alone. Waste to energy has become a preferred method of rubbish disposal in the EU, and there are now 420 plants in Europe equipped to provide heat and electricity to more than 20 million people. Germany ranks top in terms of importing rubbish, ahead of Sweden, Belgium and the Netherlands. But it's Norway that boasts the largest share of waste to energy in district heat production, according to Danish government-funded State of Green.

Oslo's waste incinerator was built with extra capacity to cater for future growth. "With more and more countries in Europe moving away from using landfill, we assume that there will be growth in waste to energy," says Christoffer Back Vestli, communications adviser for the Oslo municipality. "At the moment, the city of Oslo can take 410,000 tonnes of waste a year and we import 45,000 tonnes from the UK. Europe as a whole currently dumps 150m tonnes of waste in landfills every year, so there is clearly great potential in using waste for energy."

Spillum adds: "It is cheaper [for some UK towns] to pay for us to take their waste than to pay landfill fees."

The incinerator only takes "clean trash" and the municipality is careful to filter out anything that could be hazardous. Norwegians are meticulous about their waste and divide household rubbish into three bags ? blue for plastic to be recycled, green for food waste to make biogas and white for everything else that goes to the waste plant. But many are concerned that the rubbish being imported from the UK and Ireland may not be so carefully sorted. "We have no way of knowing whether the rubbish coming in from Bristol or Leeds or Ireland has been properly sorted or is 'clean'," says Henning Reinton, head of Greenpeace in Norway.

There are worries that burning rubbish may discourage recycling. Julian Kirby, of Friends of the Earth, says: "Waste for energy isn't as green as it's made out to be. We estimate that 80% of what's in the average waste stream is easily recyclable." Kirby argues that the incineration system creates confusion: "If you think your waste being burned is a good thing then you are more inclined to just chuck things away rather than recycling them."

Some Norwegians also view the waste-to-energy plant as a blot on the landscape. "People in the city find it quite ugly," says Reinton, who is campaigning against the use of incinerators to generate energy from waste. "The modern facilities are far less polluting and damaging to the environment than the older incinerators, but burning waste is just a shortcut. We need to think about longer-term strategies for minimising it."

But most residents seem comfortable with the idea of burning waste to create fuel, with 71% of the population supporting the renewable energy source. Ove Merg, an electrical engineer in Oslo, says: "We certainly think it's positive that we use an environmentally friendly energy source. It's great that waste can be useful, and that it actually heats our house."

Øistein Thomassen, a photographer from the city, adds: "We produce insane amounts of waste every day, so why not use waste as fuel for heat? As long as the benefits outweigh the risks, I think that using waste as an energy source is brilliant."

CO2-Reduktion mit Power to Gas vorantreiben
Breites Bündnis empfiehlt Marktentwicklung und Aufbau von 1.000 Megawatt Anlagenleistung bis 2022
Die Mitglieder der von der Deutschen Energie-Agentur GmbH (dena) initiierten Strategieplattform Power to Gas plädieren dafür, jetzt die Weichen für eine großtechnische und wirtschaftliche Gewinnung von Methan und Wasserstoff aus erneuerbarem Strom zu stellen. Ziel sollte sein, bis 2022 rund 1.000 MW Anlagenleistung zu installieren. Dafür fordern die Unternehmen und Verbände ein gezieltes Markteinführungsprogramm sowie die Anrechenbarkeit von erneuerbarem Wasserstoff und Methan auf die Biokraftstoffstoffquote und ab 2015 auf die Treibhausgasminderungsquote. Dies geht aus einem Eckpunktepapier hervor, das am 18. Juni auf der Jahreskonferenz der Strategieplattform in Berlin vorgestellt wurde.
?Power to Gas erleichtert die Integration der erneuerbaren Energien und die Vermeidung von CO2-Emissionen?, sagte Stephan Kohler, Vorsitzender der dena-Geschäftsführung, bei der Eröffnung der Konferenz. ?Die Energie aus Windkraft- und Solaranlagen kann mit Hilfe von Power to Gas im Erdgasnetz gespeichert und vielseitig genutzt werden ? in Fahrzeugen, Industrieanlagen, Heizungen oder Kraftwerken. Das ist ein wichtiger Beitrag zum Erreichen der energiepolitischen Ziele der Bundesregierung. Deshalb sollten wir alles dafür tun, diese Systemlösung schnell auszubauen und auf dem Markt zu etablieren. Unter den aktuellen Rahmenbedingungen ist das noch nicht möglich.?
Um die Markteinführung für die Systemlösung Power to Gas voranzutreiben, plädiert die Strategieplattform für die Befreiung von Letztverbraucherabgaben, die Anpassung des Rechtsrahmens und der technischen Regelungen sowie für ein zeitlich und mengenmäßig begrenztes Markteinführungsprogramm. Schließlich sollen Wasserstoff und Methan aus dem Power-to-Gas-Verfahren als vollwertige erneuerbare Kraftstoffe anerkannt werden. Bei der Berechnung der Biokraftstoffquote im Sinne einer vollumfänglichen Umsetzung der derzeit gültigen Fassung der EU-Richtlinie 2009/28/EG müssen Wasserstoff und Methan aus dem Power-to-Gas-Verfahren dann grundsätzlich angerechnet werden.
Durch Realisierung eines Anlagenvolumens von 1.000 MW könnten die spezifischen Installationskosten von derzeit 3.600 Euro pro Kilowatt elektrische Leistung (kWel) auf ca. 1.000 Euro/kWel im Jahr 2022 gesenkt werden. Gleichzeitig könnten damit pro Jahr zwischen 2 und 4 TWh erneuerbarer Strom aufgenommen und 400 bis 800 Millionen Kubikmeter Wasserstoff erzeugt werden. Für eine solche Marktentwicklung sind unter den derzeitigen Rahmenbedingungen Investitionen von ca. 1,7 Milliarden Euro notwendig.
Die ?Jahreskonferenz Power to Gas ? eine Systemlösung auf dem Weg zur Marktreife? bietet den Teilnehmern die Chance, sich mit Experten aus Industrie, Wissenschaft, Verbänden und Politik über die Erfahrungen mit dem Power-to-Gas-Konzept und den neuesten Entwicklungen auszutauschen. Zu den Referenten und Diskussionsteilnehmern gehören unter anderem: Dr. Gerhard Holtmeier, Mitglied des Vorstands der Thüga AG; Matthias Machnig, Thüringer Minister für Wirtschaft, Arbeit und Technologie; Boris Schucht, Vorsitzender der Geschäftsführung der 50Hertz Transmission GmbH; Prof. Dr.-Ing. Michael Sterner, Fakultät Elektro- und Informationstechnik an der Technischen Hochschule Regensburg.
Die Strategieplattform Power to Gas wird von der dena gemeinsam mit Partnern aus Wirtschaft, Forschung und Verbänden umgesetzt, um die Weiterentwicklung der Systemlösung Power to Gas zu unterstützen. Detaillierte Informationen zu Power to Gas, zur Strategieplattform und zu den Projektpartnern stehen unter www.powertogas.info zur Verfügung.

Full story:
New climate strategy coming within weeks: Obama adviser
Valerie Volcovici Reuters
11:51 a.m. EDT, June 19, 2013
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama will target carbon emissions from power plants as part of a second-term climate change agenda expected to be rolled out in the next few weeks, his top energy and climate adviser said on Wednesday.
Obama will take several steps to make tackling climate change a "second-term priority" that builds on first-term policies, Heather Zichal, deputy assistant to the president for energy and climate change, said at a forum sponsored by the New Republic magazine.
On Wednesday in Berlin, Obama said the United States understood it had to do more to fight climate change and he pledged that more action was coming.
"Our dangerous carbon emissions have come down, but we know we have to do more. And we will do more," he said in a speech.
The president is expected to announce new U.S. measures to fight global warming in the coming weeks.
Zichal confirmed that an announcement is expected in weeks and highlighted moves that will shape Obama's agenda but not require new funding or legislation by Congress.
She said the administration plans to expand energy efficiency standards for appliances, accelerate clean energy development on public lands and use the Clean Air Act to tackle greenhouse gas emissions in the power and energy sectors.
The Environmental Protection Agency is working to finish carbon emissions standards for new power plants. It is then expected to tackle regulations on existing power plants.
Zichal said that part of the Democratic president's strategy will be to depoliticize the issue of climate policy, which led to bitter partisan fights during his first term.
One item off the agenda is a tax on carbon emitters, she said, a move strenuously opposed by many Republicans in Congress... Less

3622 Postings, 5740 Tage Bäcker33White House move on power plant emissions

By Valerie Volcovici

WASHINGTON, June 23 (Reuters) - Before President Barack Obama unveils a plan to lower carbon emissions from thousands of existing U.S. power plants, stakeholders on all sides of the issue have attempted to make their mark on the regulations.

Electric utilities, environmental groups, large electricity consumers, and states have been working furiously behind the scenes for months to have a say in new rules that will be laid out by the Environmental Protection Agency.

Obama, in a video released by the White House on Saturday, confirmed that he will deliver a major speech on climate change on Tuesday. "I'll lay out my vision for where I believe we need to go - a national plan to reduce carbon pollution," Obama said.

Administration officials have said the White House will use the Clean Air Act to tackle power plants, which account for nearly 40 percent of greenhouse gas emissions.

This comes as no surprise to the companies and states that will have to either comply with or carry out the regulations. For the past few months, they have been working behind the scenes to influence the EPA before it begins what could be a months- or years-long rule-making process.

"The traditional industry response to EPA rule-making is - the EPA puts something out and then we respond to it," said Emily Fisher, a director of legal affairs for energy and environment at electric industry lobby group Edison Electric Institute (EEI). "This is different in that we feel obligated to be more engaged early on."

Fisher said the EPA will be in a "gray area" when it takes its first steps to regulate existing sources because the agency will need to use a rarely used and broadly worded section of the Clean Air Act, known as 111(d).

Under that statute the EPA would set federal emissions guidelines and decide upon the best systems or technologies for reducing emissions. Each state would then be left to set performance standards for its power plants and to determine how the plants will meet those standards.

Because there is little legal precedent for the rule, the agency will rely on a range of external sources for input, said Dina Kruger, a former director of the EPA climate change division and now a regulatory consultant.

EARLY START

Environmental group the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) has developed the most detailed proposal so far.

In December it unveiled a plan in which the EPA would set state-specific emissions rates that would give the states most reliant on coal-generated energy more time to comply.

Dan Lashof, NRDC's climate and clean air program director, said the group wrote the plan to "rehabilitate the reputation of the Clean Air Act," which critics say will raise electricity prices, "and show there is a flexible way to regulate carbon."

Under the plan, a state that currently gets more electricity from coal-fired power plants than cleaner-burning natural gas or renewable energy would set an emissions rate target in 2020 that is higher than for a state that is less coal-dependent. States would then develop their own plans to meet the target. Less

Incentives have been essential in encouraging a paradigm shift in the way energy is obtained, valued and used in the United States and in other parts of the globe. Energy independence, energy security and resiliency, energy responsibility and energy efficiency are drivers for state and federal incentives for stationary fuel cells.

Stationary fuel cells bridge the environmental and energy goals established by policy makers with consumers" need to save energy and money.

Federal Tax Credit (stationary fuel cells)
The Federal Investment Tax Credit (FITC) can provide a tax credit of up to 30% of the total project cost for qualifying installations in the United States. The FITC is set to expire in 2016.

State Level Programs and Benefits for Stationary Fuel Cells
California

The California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) Self-Generation Incentive Program (SGIP) provides incentives to support existing, new, and emerging distributed energy resources. The SGIP provides rebates for qualifying distributed energy systems installed on the customer's side of the utility meter and is currently administered by the four investor-owned utilities (IOUs) in California. The program has an approved budget of $83M per year through 2014 and an approved program timeline through 2016. The total budget is split among the IOU"s and "renewable/emerging" and "non-renewable" categories.

The funding is subject to a 40% limit per manufacturer. Fuel cells on natural gas receive an incentive of $2,025/kW for 2013.

New Jersey

The New Jersey Board of Public Utilities provides funding for two fuel cell and combined heat and power programs, a small program (<1MW) and a large program (≥1MW).Both small and large programs are open enrollment with set budgets and program requirements. The programs vary in program administrator, budget allocation and system efficiency requirements. For the small program, a majority of the incentive is paid prior to operation (~80%); the remaining 20% is performance based. For the large program, the funding is not performance based; 100% is paid by the commercial operation date of the system.

Projects in the small program can receive up to $2M or 60% of project cost.
Projects in the large program can receive up to $3M or 45% of project cost.

The Alternative and Clean Energy Program (ACE) provides financial assistance in the form of grant and loan funds for the development and installation of alternative and clean energy projects in the state.  Fuel cells that run on natural gas qualify, in addition to several other types of distributed generation, energy efficiency and clean technology. The program is administered jointly by the Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED), and the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) under the direction of the Commonwealth Financing Authority (CFA).

Funding is available for fuel cell projects with no maximum project size and is limited to $2M or 30% of project cost.  Project funding is also subjective and requires DCED board approval.

The RPS mandate requires utilities to generate a percentage of their power from renewable sources, specifically, wind, solar, biomass and fuel cells. If a utility fails to meet this mandate, fines are assessed for non-compliance. Measures are also in place for government buildings and large energy users to invest in on-site renewable power generation.

Korean utilities are required to obtain 2% 2% of power generation in 2012 from renewable sources and increasing by 0.5% each year through 2015, then by 1% per year reaching 10% by 2022.

 die erwartete Rede von UPO wird hoffentlich frischen Wind in die Brennstoffzellenaktien wehen. Ich vermute, dass er es tun wird und hoffe, dass er sich nicht nur auf das neue Zauberwort "Fracking" versteifen wird. Diese Technologie wird zwar die USA zu einem der größten Mineralöl-Produzenten machen aber die Sache hat auch den großen Haken der potenziellen Grundwasserverschmutzung. Der Rohstoff Wasser ist in manchen Gegenden der Welt schon jetzt wertvoller als Öl und das wird so weitergehen für alle anderen Gegenden der Welt. Daher würde ich dieses Verfahren solange nicht nutzen und mich mehr um alternative Ideen kümmern. Nachdem er schon in Berlin den Umweltschutz auf der Agenda hatte, wird er es hoffentlich morgen entsprechend konkretisieren.
