Fueling the Hydrogen Economy

P+E Participates In Renewable Energy Forum


Power+Energy, Inc. Participates In Renewable Energy Forum

Conference organized by Congressman Michael Fitzpatrick

IVYLAND, PA../EWORLDWIRE/August 11, 2006

Power+Energy, Inc. (P+E) was an invited presenter at the Renewable Energy Forum held on August 4, 2006 at the Delaware Valley College in Doylestown, Penn. The forum was organized by U.S. Congressman Michael Fitzpatrick to increase public awareness of energy issues and the variety of technologies available for decreasing demand for imported petroleum products. The forum, open to the public, included two sessions: “Advancements in Alternative Energy Technology” and “Increasing Energy while Decreasing Greenhouse Gas Emissions”, along with a variety of exhibits and an opportunity to drive several fuel cell and hybrid vehicles.

P+E’s CEO and founder Dr. Peter Bossard, made a presentation entitled “High Efficiency, On-Demand H2 Recovery from Renewable Fuels.” This presentation outlines the opportunity to utilize existing liquid fuels and alternative fuels to supply clean hydrogen for fuel cells. This technology avoids the need for significant investments in hydrogen production, storage technology and infrastructure while doubling the net energy recovered vs. internal combustion engines.

The company is actively working with a number of leading organizations in fuel cell systems development. This includes a series of contracts with the Army Research Office (ARO), DARPA and the Navy (NAVSEA and ONR) to develop hydrogen separation systems for extracting Hydrogen from Methanol, Ethanol and Diesel fuels. P+E has delivered a series of systems to the Navy, Battelle and a number of other industry leaders over the past year. The technology is scaleable from small portable systems (50-500 watts) to large power plants (up to 2 megawatts). Applications include portable battery chargers, auxiliary and back-up power systems and remote, off-grid power systems. This technology will accelerate the development and adoption of fuel cell vehicles by enabling them to fill up with gasoline, diesel or ethanol and efficiently convert that fuel into hydrogen as it is needed to operate the fuel cell.

About Power+Energy

Power & Energy is headquartered in Pennsylvania, USA. Established in 1993, the company’s mission is to enable the hydrogen economy and promote energy efficiency through the application of micro-channel technologies. The company provides a full range of micro-channel hydrogen purifiers to ultra-high purity users across the U.S., Asia and Europe.

Power & Energy is leading the way to the hydrogen economy with proprietary manufacturing and patented hydrogen purification, separation and generation technologies. Power & Energy’s Micro-Channel palladium-alloy hydrogen purifiers purify any grade of hydrogen to nine-nines purity, meeting the most stringent requirements for semiconductor fabrication processes, including light emitting diode manufacture, solar cell manufacture and the manufacture of other compound and silicon semiconductors. Power & Energy’s Micro-Channel hydrogen purifiers are also ideal for metallurgy, R&D, and instrumentation applications. Power & Energy’s Micro-Channel membrane systems can also be used to efficiently separate hydrogen from reformed fuels and synthesis gas mixtures.
Power & Energy is now applying its hydrogen expertise to the fuel cell vehicle refueling market. Power & Energy has recognized that highly compact, low cost, and efficient hydrogen generators that can convert existing liquid fuels to hydrogen at the refueling station will enable the rapid development of the hydrogen refueling infrastructure that fuel-cell vehicles will require. The company’s expertise in the design and manufacture of micro-channel gas processors provides the basis for this exciting new venture.
