SANTA'S WAREHOUSE WORKERS GO GREEN WITH FUEL CELLS
Thousands of battery-powered forklifts in warehouses across the U.S. will haul everything from frozen turkeys and cured hams to big-screen TVs and tablet computers this holiday season. A growing number of big-name businesses that operate such warehouses have begun deploying forklifts that run on fuel cells as a way to both save money and go green.
Most such fuel cell-powered forklifts working the North American warehouses of Coca-Cola, FedEx, Wal-Mart, Kroger and CVS come from an upstate New York company called Plug Power. The company has dominated fuel cell-powered forklift sales in North America by offering up its GenDrive fuel cell technology that boosts warehouse productivity, lowers operating costs and slashes carbon footprints.
"We convinced a group of large customers to give this technology a trial," said Andy Marsh, president and chief executive officer of Plug Power. "In some cases, customers who were repeat buyers became believers."
Beyond its rapid growth in the $4 billion North American market for handling materials, Plug Power has also taken aim at the $20 billion worldwide market. It recently struck a deal with Axane to begin deploying fuel cell-powered forklifts in Europe.
Clean technology The company's expansion has relied upon how its fuel cells can transform the warehouse business by cleanly creating electricity from the chemical reaction between oxygen in the air and hydrogen gas. GenDrive fuel cells are paired with lithium-ion batteries.
Such fuel cells allow forklifts to continue working at full speed and power up until they need to refuel, whereas forklifts powered by lead-acid batteries suffer a performance drop-off of as much as 15 percent as their power drains.
Switching to fuel cells also allows businesses to eliminate battery switching and charging stations manned by full-time crews. Those can take up to 6 percent of valuable warehouse space. Instead, fuel cell-powered forklifts only need a wall-mounted hydrogen refueling station where vehicle operators can refuel within a few minutes.
Seeing Green Plug Power's list of customers has grown to more recently include Wal-Mart Canada, German automaker BMW, and food distributor Sysco. Those corporate giants have begun snapping up Plug Power's fuel cell-powered forklifts — ranging in cost from $12,000 to $28,000 — because they see big business savings despite the cost of the new equipment.
"One of the problems with the (fuel cell) industry for many years was that people didn't recognize that the money aspect is more important than the green aspect," Marsh told InnovationNewsDaily. "Customers want to make the right decision for the environment, but they also want to make the right decision financially."
Getting fuel cell technology to the point where it makes stronger business sense has taken about a decade, Marsh explained. Plug Power itself started in 1997, but when Marsh took over, he streamlined the business to focus on the forklifts and cut Plug Power's operating costs from $58 million per year to $16 million. The company's growing business sales since then have allowed it to project shipping enough forklifts next year to become profitable.
As more warehouses install the hydrogen-refueling stations to support fuel cell-powered forklifts, Plug Power expects new business opportunities. Marsh expects his company to target fuel cell-powered refrigerated trailers for industrial food distributors such as Sysco, as well as off-road vehicle fleets used by FedEx or UPS that can piggyback on the warehouse fueling stations.
"The key is that you don't wait for somebody to build out hydrogen infrastructure everywhere — think about how you can build it yourself," Marsh said. "Build a hydrogen fueling station that can operate like a gas station today."

Wasserstoff-Brennstoffzellen liefern auf die Verheißung von sauberem Strom. Und bei Plug Power wird die kontinuierliche Entwicklung von hoch effizienten und nachhaltigen Energiequellen in unsere Kultur eingebettet.
Durch eine elektrochemische Reaktion, wandeln Brennstoffzellen Wasserstoff-Kraftstoff in Energie. Im Gegensatz zu toxischen Blei-Säure-Batterien, die begrenzte Energie gespeichert haben, führen Brennstoffzellen kontinuierlich so lange als Brennstoff vorgesehen. Und unter Verwendung von Wasserstoff als primäre Energiequelle, sind die einzigen Nebenprodukte erzeugt Wärme und Wasser.
Plug Power zum vierten Quartal und Jahr End Results am 28. März 2013 kündigen
Latham, NY, 22. März 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) - Plug Power Inc. (Nasdaq: PLUG), ein führendes Unternehmen bei der Bereitstellung von sauberer, zuverlässiger Energie-Lösungen, hat heute angekündigt, dass sie der Gesellschaft 2012 Ergebnisse des vierten Quartals am 28. März 2013 veröffentlichen .
In Verbindung mit der Pressemitteilung wird das Unternehmen eine Live-Telefonkonferenz und einen Webcast.
PlugIn kann es noch schaffen. entweder aus eigener Kraft - und dazu haben sie nun weitere 180 Tage Zeit bekommen, um den Kurs auf über 1 USD zu bringen und dort für die Dauer von zehn aneinander folgenden Handelstagen zu halten.
Oder die Firma wird verkauft - potenzielle Käufer wären Ballard oder FuelCell Energy, die im gleichen Sektor arbeiten.
Kurzum - ich glaube an die FuelCell Technologie und ich hoffe, dass diese mittelständischen Firmen die Saure-Gurken-Zeit überleben. Ich werde jetzt erst einmal investieren - Risiko ist da aber die Gewinnchancen deutlich höher als beim Lotto...;-)))

The Company also announced that on April 12, 2013, the Company received a notice from The NASDAQ OMX Group indicating that the Company has not regained compliance with NASDAQ Listing Rule 5550(a)(2), the minimum bid price rule, because the Company's common stock did not maintain a minimum closing bid price of $1.00 per share over a period of 10 consecutive business days ending on or prior to April 10, 2013. The NASDAQ notice has no immediate effect on the listing of the Company's common stock.
In accordance with NASDAQ rules, the Company has a period of 180 calendar days, until October 7, 2013, to regain compliance with the minimum bid price rule. If at any time before October 7, 2013, the closing bid price of the Company's common stock is $1.00 per share or more for a minimum of 10 consecutive business days, NASDAQ will notify the Company that it has regained compliance with the minimum bid price rule.

However, the Company may appeal the delisting determination to a NASDAQ hearing panel and the delisting will be stayed pending the panel's determination. At this hearing, the Company would present a plan to regain compliance and NASDAQ would then subsequently render a decision. The Company is currently evaluating its alternatives to resolve the listing deficiency.
