What do you know about Plug? I read an article a few months ago in Scientific American about some companies that are essentially "pyramid schemes". Consider a company with low or negative income but promises employees or investors large sums of money in anticipation of a sudden and significant improvement in profitability, for whatever reason. The SciAm article suggested such companies might be considered pyramid schemes. I wonder if that doesn't apply to Plug? I'd love to hear otherwise, but I've also heard a lot about their business practices which seem highly questionable.

I don't know specifically about plug but I would say it's extremely common for all companies and the only difference is some actually make money. I am still surprised at how some companies can somehow keep filing bankruptcy and losing money for years, and still make public offerings and fool people into giving them more money. The best example off the top of my head for that is "Proton OnSite" formerly known as "Proton Energy" formerly known as "Distributed Energy Systems" formerly known as "several names every time they claim bankruptcy or pull some sort of scam to come up with more money, and yet they are constantly in the news for giving out scholarship to college students and claiming breakthroughs. They are even in the list of headlines I just posted.

"Proton OnSite to Receive "E" Award from President Obama for Expansion of U.S. Exports"

The problem I've noticed with many "clean energy" or "environmental" companies is the leadership has the environment in mind more than they do making a profit. That is a good thing, unless you are an investor looking for profit of course. This I know most true for the company "energy conversion devices" which I just looked up while writing this for the first time in years and I now see they are listed on the pink sheets. Can't say I'm surprised, but it's sad. They were working on thin film where they could print out solar film. I listened to several conference calls though and they really didn't have any concept of profit, they would reinvest more than they had in R&D for new ideas far and wide instead of working on existing ones.

Most companies are scammers, liars, and con artists, and the investing mechanisms we have to invest in ideas leave much to be desired because, the main one being the stock market, is not only full of deceitful companies, but the investor arena is full of traders that are all out to lie and do whatever manipulation they can to take money from people less informed than they are.

In addition to the above post.

This is constantly in the news. How a small company that has tricked investors, claimed bankruptcy, and changed names to escape debt multiple times can put out 2 million into scholarships doesn't make sense to me. It leaves a bad taste in the mouth of investors as if it wasn't already hard enough to get people to invest in clean energy. It's great and all to fund education and stuff, but IMO Some of these companies have no concept of making a successful product/company because they get too sidetracked on multiple do-gooder pursuits.

http://www.hartfordbusiness.com/article ... /305289925
Proton OnSite of Wallingford recently gave out $36,000 in scholarships to three high school seniors as part of The Proton OnSite Scholarship and Innovation Program. The program was created to help fuel the future careers of science and technology students. Proton OnSite has awarded more than $2 million to 25 high school students over the past six years through the scholarship program, which is devoted to building the next generation of scientific innovation.

I guess I haven't looked at it as those in the company simply don't know how to make the company successful. You could be right, the leadership may simply be incompetant. From what I know, they are essentially trying to create a market where one doesn't exist yet, by competing direcly with batteries* for the material handling market. Their logic seems to be that by creating this large market, the production of fuel cell packs will increase and the higher quantities will reduce costs. With reduced costs, Plug can turn a profit. Unfortunately, from everything I've heard, Plug simply hasn't been able to turn a profit. But they're into it pretty deep now. The strategy for reducing fuel cell pack costs is to increase their market even further, hoping for improvements and cost reductions in their products. Near as I can tell, this isn't working out, though it may be improving. I'm not up on their finances to be honest.

Recently, they decided to go into the supply side as well. The concept seems to be to install the hydrogen storage and dispensing systems in an effort to reduce those costs, but from what I gather, they've run into a lot of problems that they didn't expect.

On the bright side, Toyota and Hyundai seem to be on the verge of leasing fuel cell vehicles in California and those companies have obviously been highly successful so hopefully that will worrk out!

Leasing is definitely the way to go for consumers, until the technology and supply/support infrastructure expands and matures enough to be more reliable and competitive.

I have been waiting for this for several years. It was Honda I think was one of the first working on it and was hoping that we would already have a fuel cell car with fueling station in our garage by now. They solved the chicken and egg fueling infrastructure for hydrogen problem by thinking they would just give their first lease customers a fueling station in their garage.

The interesting thing I think would be to figure out this...

Turning natural gas to electricity right at the site of use and on demand would eliminate all that wasted energy through transmission from a large centralized power plant. A plant that also needs to ramp up and down to meet demand and often run at less efficient uhhh RPMs?

I wonder how much energy and cost is associated with the transmission of that energy and if it is comparable enough to make up the difference for fueling your car out of your garage.

In other words. If you live in a state/area where you already get say 90% of your electricity from natural gas (such as Nevada), how much natural gas would be saved by not having to transmit it to customers and is that saved energy enough to fuel your car?

What sort of mechanism uses NG to get electricity? Is there something more high tech than a steam piston generator.

I have a gas stove that pumps out a lot of heat on the those cold winter days. I'm told this heating is half the price of hydro, in these parts. If that same heat could be making electricity at the same time as providing heat the electricity it provided would be free.

It works through chemical reactions that strip electrons away and reroute them giving you a different product. Heat is also a byproduct and they call these systems co-generation where you can use the heat to heat your home or swimming pool. The simplest example is letting hydrogen combine with oxygen to form water and in the process the electrons are re-routed.

I think in most cases hydrogen is always split away from its reactant (natural gas in this case) for the above picture reaction example and you are left with carbon in some form, water, and heat.

Thanks, I looked it up. That is exactly what I was thinking of. I'll look more into it later, but what I see so far is for implementation in larger complexes. I wonder if they have something smaller scale, more residential.

clearly the demand for something like this is there because I hear people get excited about it all the time when hearing about it, but the technology doesn't seem to be there yet. You can buy these systems right now but they are expensive. A friend of mine got really excited when first hearing about it wanting to install one in his RV.

I just found this. I'm not sure if it's a scam or what, but sounds great. I will have to investigate more.

Wow. I just looked around the website. It is exactly what I experimented doing several years ago (maybe the inventor ripped of my youtube video lol :D). I didn't have the time to get really into it, but I built and installed a system on my truck. I posted about it in another thread on here. viewtopic.php?f=77&t=29076&p=284395#p282763

It might be worth me spending the time to get back into it since I already had it all figured out and the "skeleton" of the system still built in my truck. I am not seeing on the website how much hydrogen those units output but I'm sure they output a lot more than mine did.

That is and always has been a problem with fuel cells. I think the cheap electrolyte/catalyst used is something like simple table salt which at least lowers the temperature at which water freezes.

That was one of the main reasons I didn't continue on with my experiment. Life made me too busy and I just forgot about it. My containers eventually froze and broke.

On the web page it was talking about using distilled water, and somewhere else it mention being safe at below freezing temps. Which might be the case if in use driving. But sitting over night in the driveway, I think not, unless you are taking the reservoir of water in when not in use.

The space inside the cell might be too small to worry about the water expanding and causing damage but the lines and reservoir are of concern. For sure this is a project to start in the spring time. Get it all figured out, then finalize the design before winter.

Distilled water is probably to start without minerals that will corrode the plates. You still need an electrolyte to make the water conductive otherwise you won't produce any hydrogen oxygen at all. (pure water is non-conductive)

Good point and not one they mentioned, just that rain or tap water would not work as well for the reasons you mentioned.

I found this for home use, so there is such a thing.

I almost mentioned Japan too. It's good to know my memory is still working.

After announcing the development of its first-generation household cogeneration unit in 2002, Honda teamed up with water heater manufacturers to launch household gas engine cogeneration systems in Japan in 2003. Since that time, systems have been sold through gas utilities around the country under the ECOWILL brand. Today, more and more households in Japan are adopting cogeneration systems, and a variety of systems, including those based on fuel cell technology, have also entered the market, giving families more options than ever before.


My question still stands on if energy lost transmitting power over a distance equals the energy converted from a home unit to fuel a tank of hydrogen gas for a car. Hoping someone knows some ballpark numbers for energy lost in distance traveled over power lines, or I can look this up at some point. I think it's an interesting question after reading that article Darby posted.

Here's an interesting alternative to backup generators for residential use ... a whole house battery backup.

http://simpliphipower.com/simpliphi-power-showcases-98-efficient-storage-solutions-without-hazardous-cobalt-or-heat-mitigation-requirements-at-solar-power-international/

Image

You could hook a bunch of advanced L-ION batteries (approx 30-50AH each) in series, pair it with a cutover, and use it in lieu of a backup generator. The system could also be paired with solar power for off-grid use.

The option will become more competitive as prices continue to drop.

Sounds like you'll be having a lot more fun!

I'm scheduled to be away on business myself so won't be able to listen in.

You'd think they'd ask their audience if we were available...
