WATT Fuel Cell Corp. to Commercialize Solid Oxide Fuel Cells

WATT Fuel Cell Corp. announces its incorporation as a designer, developer and producer of advanced solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) systems for the portable power, small stationary power and distributed generation markets.

Port Washington, N.Y., February 15, 2011 - WATT Fuel Cell Corp. announces its incorporation as a designer, developer and producer of advanced solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) systems for the portable power, small stationary power and distributed generation markets. Led by fuel cell industry veteran Dr. Caine Finnerty, the company is focusing efforts to produce a flexible core system scalable from 200W to 2kW of power.


"It's an exciting time in the clean energy market, with an array of technologies that have been designed to address the world's ever-increasing energy demands," said Finnerty. "The time is now for fuel cells to take their place among these advanced energy technologies. WATT Fuel Cell is ready to demonstrate that fuel cells no longer belong in the realm of the science fair project or as technical demonstrators, and is developing SOFCs to address today's energy needs in an efficient, environmentally responsible and cost-competitive manner."

According to Finnerty, the WATT Fuel Cell team includes key staff members that have helped define the portable fuel cell industry. Together, they have worked to address common SOFC design challenges such as fuel processing, current collection, thermal integration and thermal mass. In addition, the company's unique approach allows for cost savings and production efficiencies.

"The key to our success is implementing the CORE approach - Cost-Optimized, Reliable Energy - across all system designs," said WATT Fuel Cell Director of Systems Paul DeWald. "Our historical understanding of the challenges to commercialize the SOFC has led us to a breakthrough solution - a reliable advanced energy source that is flexibly sized, built with off-the-shelf components and can employ a variety of readily available fuels."

"Our technology has state-of-the-art performance and is manufactured with scalable processes," said Benjamin Emley, WATT Fuel Cell Director of Technology. "The ability to automate will minimize cost and maximize the effective yield."

WATT Fuel Cell is currently establishing a state-of-the-art 33,000 square foot fuel cell facility in Nassau County, N.Y. For additional information, email info@wattfc.com.

SolarEdge Technologies - EV Charging Single Phase Inverter

The SolarEdge PV inverter combines sophisticated digital control technology with efficient power SolarEdge's EV charging single phase inverter offers homeowners the ability to charge electric vehicles up to six times faster than a standard Level 1 charger through an innovative solar boost mode that utilizes grid and PV charging simultaneously. This product is the world's first EV charger with an integrated PV inverter. Reducing the hassle of installing separately a standalone EV charger and a PV inverter, the EV charging inverter eliminates the need for additional wiring, conduit and a breaker installation. By installing an EV charger that is integrated with an inverter, no additional dedicated circuit breaker is needed, saving space and ruling out a potential upgrade to the main distribution panel. Whether you own an EV now or just want to be EV-ready, future-proof your home with SolarEdge.
