Finally coming to the Northeast and the home of many of the major fuel cell manufacturers, long-running fuel cell installations and a fleet of hydrogen fuel cell buses, the Fuel Cell Seminar& Exposition (FCS&E) is headed to Connecticut. The FCS&E will be held November 5-8, 2012, at the Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, Connecticut.
By far the largest and longest-running U.S. conference focusing on hydrogen and fuel cells, the 2012 Seminar will focus on commercialization, research & development, market value propositions, business solutions, and deployments. Presentations will cover utility, residential, vehicle, and portable uses of hydrogen and fuel cells in addition to discussions on the challenges in costs, fuels, storage, reliability, lifetime, and adoptability. The Seminar continues to expand on its mission to advance global energy, environmental, and economic benefits offered by fuel cell and hydrogen technologies.
There will lots of featured activities on top of the Plenary sessions and presentation tracks, including Educational Short Courses and Workshops, a day-trip tour on a fuel cell bus exploring Connecticut’s hydrogen and fuel cell installations, a Ride & Drive event, and two networking receptions!
The three free half-day workshops include: Business Services and Export, Investing in Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Technology, and Fuel Cells for Municipalities. There is also a free Fuel Cell 101 short course for educators.
Cool fun fact about the conference’s location – the Mohegan Sun had not one, but two fuel cell systems providing power to the Casino over the years. A report on the fuel cells’ operation provides a lot of background, cost and performance data.
Advance Registration Rates end Sunday, September 30, 2012. After September 30th, attendees will pay the on-site registration fees. Access to register online will end Friday, November 2, 2012.
