Fuel cells are coming out of the financial slump of 1999 and 2000. Developers are beginning to make profits. They want to assure that their product becomes marketable first, and not displaced by a competitive technology. Investors want to know if they can make a good profit on their investment dollars in fuel cells and are looking for proof of strong performance of past investment to make sound present and future investment decisions. Attend CBI's 4th Annual Business Case for Fuel Cells conference, December 3-4, 2001 in Miami, Florida, and find out how you can sort out these questions and benefit from the opportunities that Fuel Cells provide. Learn from leaders in the industry, including: Allied Utility Network, AlterPower Capital Corp., American Hydrogen Association, Apollo Energy Systems, Inc., Automotive Consultants & Associates, Inc., Bonneville Power Administration, FA Technology Ventures, IdaTech, Nuvera Fuel Cells, PEPCO Technologies, Superior MicroPowders, Texaco Ovonic Hydrogen Systems, and TNRCC. Hear how to: understand the operating cost differential between fuel cells and traditional generation for industrial customers; what private equity companies look for when identifying new technology investment opportunities; how using fuel cells during times of peak demand can minimize risks and costs; how to site fuel cell systems where they will have the biggest impact on reliability to end users; strategies to lower grid interconnection costs; the current state and new developments in industrial hydrogen infrastructure and storage options; and opportunities for fuel supply flexibility and lower total system cost in different fuel cell applications. Hear a Special Highlighted Presentation on "Achieving Market Penetration for Solid Oxide Fuel Cells" from Dr. Subhash Singhal of Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, as well as a Case Study on the Texas Fuel Cell Partnership - Using Fuel Cells to Power Emissions Monitoring Equipment.
