Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Energy Association Partners with Fuel Cell Seminar for 2014 Conference

The Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Energy Association and Fuel Cell Seminar & Energy Exposition Continue Partnership Efforts for 2014 Conference, reinforcing industry strength at annual event.

The Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Energy Association (FCHEA) is pleased to announce its continued partnership with the Fuel Cell Seminar & Energy Exposition (FCS&EE). This year's conference will be held November 10-13, 2014, in Los Angeles, California, USA at the Westin Bonaventure Hotel. The 2014 theme is "Fuel Cells: the Power to Drive Change TODAY."

"With the industry moving forward at a record pace, the Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Energy Association is excited to reinforce our relationship with the Fuel Cell Seminar & Energy Exposition," said Morry Markowitz, President and Executive Director of FCHEA. "The Fuel Cell Seminar is the most prominent fuel cell event of the year and we are proud that many of our association members will be featured as plenary, panel and presentation speakers."

"FCHEA and its members are helping to bring fuel cells to the forefront of the energy conversation," said Dr. Mark Williams, President of the FCS&EE Board of Directors. "The partnership with FCHEA is an opportunity to strengthen the hydrogen fuel and fuel cell industry economic sectors. FCS&EE and FCHEA will showcase the leading edge activities of the fuel cell industry – from global perspectives to community initiatives, innovative concepts to current applications and markets, and everything in between."

This annual event is the premier international gathering of the fuel cell and hydrogen energy industries and their customers and stakeholders since 1976. Over a four day span, the conference hosts 1,000+ attendees and features more than 200 presentations from around the world.

The 2014 FCS&EE theme, "Fuel Cells: The Power to Drive Change TODAY," expands on the mission to advance global energy, environmental, and economic benefits offered by fuel cells, hydrogen, and natural gas technologies. Fuel cells are installed around the world, for primary or backup power at data centers, company headquarters, retail sites, hospitals and more, as well as in various other applications including portable and emergency backup power, heat and electricity for homes and apartments, material handling, passenger vehicles, buses and consumer electronics.

2014 Sponsors include Toyota, Honda, FuelCell Energy, the California Fuel Cell Partnership, South Coast Air Quality Management District and the U.S. Department of Energy Fuel Cell Technologies Office.

Featured activities during FCS&EE will include world class Plenary Session and Hydrogen & Fuel Cell Presentation Tracks, Educational Short Courses and Workshops, a Poster Session and Business to Business (B2B) Product Theater , a "Fuel Cell Power and Hydrogen Fueling Station Tour" of Los Angeles, a public Ride & Drive event of fuel cell electric vehicles, and two networking receptions.

Online registration is open through November 7, 2014 at http://www.fuelcellseminar.com/registration-is-open.aspx.

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.
