AGENDA for  SATURDAY, OCTOBER 20, 2012

NOTES: Finally! Commercialization of non platinum catalyst for PEM fuel cells- Pajarito Powder. ITM Power to begin selling membrane that does over 20 Amps per square inch. This combination may finally reduce the price of fuel cells and get the hydrogen industry started. Spinning solar cells are 20X more efficient! Beam me up Scotty! National Lab working on WARP drive. Prepare your sweet tooth for the SUGAR battery.

Greetings and Introductions: Chapter President, John Gotthold, greets all attendees and asks each attendee to state their name and a short synopsis of their background and what they hope to learn by attending the meeting. The video streaming is set up on IwowWe ( 10 min.)

1.           Hydrogen Transport: Electric car charging app. How much does it really cost? Tesla solar powere dEV charging. 1,000 Hyundai ix35 FC SUVs on road by 2015. First series production run for hydrogen fuel cell cars. Hyundai, Honda, Toyota, Kia, Nissan, Mercedes-Benz all to have FCs in production by 2015. Will Ford, & GM?. Vision industries ships 100 hydrogen FC powered class 8 trucks and teams with Balqon to develop Zero TT terminal tractor. Honda, Nissan, Hyundai, Toyota in Nordic FC splurge. FC rickshaws. H2 to power Canadian Coast guard ships. H2 rickshaws in Sir Lanka.

2.           Hydrogen Technology: Nano flowers for solar cells. LiCoO2 catalyst works better than Platinum. PEM FC to turn CO2 into liquid fuel! Single molecule solar cell. V3 solar- spinning solar cells up electricity production 20X. New photocatalytic materials. New algorthms allows Li-ion batteries to charge twice as fast. Algenol to 7,000 gallons per acre. New organis catalysts for PEMs.

3.           Hydrogen Business: Global renewables up 17% to 257 Billion in 2011. Clean Energy down 20% in third quarter. More FC VC funding! Hydrogenics $92 million FC order- largest yet. Vestas to 8 mega Watt turbines – others to 10 megawatt! US DOE renewable energy to $1.8 B by 2025. Air products H2 network in London. Adaptive materials $ 4.7 M for fuel cells from DOE. SoCal-worlds largest digester fuel cell!.

4.           Government Support to Hydrogen: Hidden costs of energy policy!  London H2 taxis moved VIPS 2,500 miles. CA- SB 1409-CAE & CPUC to work with DOE. US debt can only be solved by Solar hydrogen?

5.           Climate change and Oil Depletion:  59,000 to 77,00 megawatts of coal plants to retire in next five years. About time we quit depending on 1690s technology!! 74% of US understands that climate change is causing weather extremes. 100,000,000 starve by 2030 due to climate change.  Global food prices at riot levels. Romans and Han Dynasty were greenhouse gas emitters. Ikea to sell only LED lighting by 2016.

HySolGenics-   EL-5000, Leak failure in stack! New sealant/adhesive looking promising.
