The vision of the Fuel Cell Seminar & Exposition is to be the premier international gathering of the Fuel Cell & Hydrogen Energy industries and their customers and stakeholders.
A Message from the Program Committee Co-Chairs:
Welcome to the Fuel Cell Seminar & Energy Exposition (FCS&EE)! We introduced our new name and logo at the 2012 event in Connecticut, which honors our past and continuing emphasis on fuel cells while incorporating the greater breadth of technologies and infrastructure required to achieve this goal in the broader energy strategy.
In 2013, we celebrate 37 years as the premier international gathering of the Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Energy industries and their customers and stakeholders. The Seminar & Exposition, founded in 1976, has evolved along with the industry. What was once primarily a forum for fuel cells and related technology research and development has grown to include an increasing number of mature fielded systems and emerging commercial products. Market penetration and commercial success require not only fuel cell technologies, but fuels and infrastructure, a fact acknowledged in our new name.
This year’s Fuel Cell Seminar & Energy Exposition features an extensive Technical Program and exciting Exposition with a focus on natural gas and hydrogen fuel. The 2013 FCS&EE features national and international partners, and showcases the importance of fuel cells and hydrogen in the development of energy strategies that reduce or eliminate greenhouse gas and pollutant emissions.
With exhibitors from around the world, the 2013 Exposition provides attendees with a global perspective of the market. The Exposition allows attendees to touch real fuel cell systems and components and it provides the opportunity to network with leaders of the international fuel cell and hydrogen industries.
Attendees will continue to enjoy the educational opportunities for which the Seminar & Exposition has become known. These include technical poster presentations, short courses, and workshops. First, second and third prizes will be awarded to posters exhibited at this year’s conference.
Networking is one of the essential missions of the Fuel Cell Seminar & Energy Exposition. Meet with and get to know the rest of the fuel cell and hydrogen communities during our Welcome and Industry Receptions.
On behalf of the Fuel Cell Seminar & Energy Exposition Program Committee, we look forward to your participation at the 2013 Fuel Cell Seminar & Energy Exposition in Ohio!
