US Fuel Cell Council Forms New Industry Standards Task Force

The US Fuel Cell Council announced today that a new Industry Standards task force has been formed to address, review, and evaluate existing industry protocols for overlap and discrepancies. The Council is seeking new participants for the task force.

WASHINGTON, DC - The US Fuel Cell Council announced today that a new Industry Standards task force has been formed to address, review, and evaluate existing industry protocols for overlap and discrepancies. The initial focus will be on PEM (proton exchange membrane) fuel cells, although other types will be investigated depending on participant interest.



"The task force's mission will be to compile test protocols, identify discrepancies and to possibly propose a method to unify protocols where appropriate," said Tony Blaine, chair of the new group.


The task force is part of the USFCC Materials & Components Working Group. The group works to address issues in the production and supply of materials and components, and their specification and standardization, which will lead to a reliable supply of components and sub-assemblies that constitute fuel cell stacks. Anyone interested in serving on the new task force should contact the USFCC about membership. The first meeting is scheduled for July 13th, 2009 at 3:00PM EST.


About the US Fuel Cell Council: The USFCC is an industry association dedicated to fostering the commercialization of fuel cells in the United States. Our members include the world's leading fuel cell developers, manufacturers, suppliers and customers.

SolarEdge Technologies - Solar Inverters, Power Optimizers and PV Monitoring

The SolarEdge PV inverter combines sophisticated digital control technology with efficient power conversion architecture to achieve superior solar power harvesting and best-in-class reliability. The fixed-voltage technology ensures the solar inverter is always working at its optimal input voltage over a wider range of string lengths and regardless of environmental conditions. A proprietary data monitoring receiver has been integrated into the inverter and aggregates the power optimizer performance data from each PV module. This data can be transmitted to the web and accessed via the SolarEdge Monitoring Portal for performance analysis, fault detection and troubleshooting of PV systems.
