Who is FuelCell Energy?
FuelCell Energy ( Nasdaq: FCEL ) is a public company that develops and manufactures fuel cell power plants for electric power generation primarily in the United States, Canada, Germany, Japan, and South Korea. The company serves manufacturers; mission critical institutions, including correction facilities and government installations; and hotels and customers, such as breweries, food processors, and wastewater treatment facilities. Their technology is designed for industrial installation NOT densely populated residential neighborhoods!
Connecticut is the ONLY state that considers natural gas a renewable energy source . These types of power plants cannot be profitable without significant government subsidies and economic incentives . FuelCell Energy is trying to get financing through a Department of Energy loan program as it needs to borrow more than $200 MILLION to continue its expansion plans. "We need legislation with provisions to promote deployment of fuel cells," said Bill Foster, vice president of government business development for FuelCell Energy. Despite having over 60 fuel-cell installations worldwide they still have not been able to make money, losing $71 million last year on revenues of $88 million . For more information please read:
