17 Years of FCM and
2017 Top Tradeshows

17 Years of FCM
Welcome to the next volume of The Cast.  As we ramp up into another year helping SOFC researchers and manufacturers meet the demands of an emerging market, it is nice to step back and see where we have been. 

fuelcellmaterials is now over 17 years old, and even The Cast is on its ninth volume.   Over those 17 years, our small business has grown into a well recognized and helpful organization to the fuel cell industry.  Since we started, we have assisted customers from all corners of the globe and expected to continue to do so as our industry works to reach its potential. 

At the beginning of every year, we focus our time on company goals, as we suspect many of you to do the same.  For 2017 our major priority will be to find new ways to help our partners achieve their goals.  Whether your goal is to have a paper published or to launch a product into an innovative market; fuelcellmaterials will do its very best to help you reach these accomplishments.  

As we advance, new challenges emerge, my hope is that we can address them together. 

you for your continued support in making fuelcellmaterials the fantastic company it is today.

Best regards,
Nathan Cooley
Director of fuelcellmaterials
If you have any goals that you are trying to accomplish this year, please feel free to contact me personally.  I will be happy to help.
Top Tradeshows in 2017
The FCM staff will be taking steps to attend the premier fuel cell events in 2017.  Trade shows or technical conferences are a great way for us to interact with our friends, colleagues, and partners.  It is also an excellent way to understand what improvements have been made to our industry; be it a new material for low-temperature applications or an industry partner launching products into new markets.  Below is a brief list of the events we have on our calendar in 2017.  If you will be attending any these shows we hope you will stop by and say hello. 
13th International Hydrogen & Fuel Cell Expo - FC Expo 2017
March 1–3, 2017
Tokyo Big Sight, Japan
Every year thousands of industry leaders, researchers, and people interested in alternative energy solutions gather in Tokyo, Japan for one of the largest fuel cell meeting in the world.  The FC Expo is part of the World Smart Energy Week which includes other alternative energy areas such as solar, battery, wind, biomass, smart grid, and thermal.  This is a great show to attend if you are looking for business opportunities in Asia.  fuelcellmaterials will attend the show and is available for discussions. 
Hannover Messe – Hydrogen + Fuel Cells + Batteries
April 24-28, 2017
Hall 27,  C66 Exhibition Grounds, Hannover, Germany
The Hannover Messe show, including all the areas it covers, spans some 6,500 exhibitors and will attract over 200,000 visitors.  Like The FC Expo, other alternative energy solutions are present at this show.  The Hydrogen + Fuel Cell + Batteries exhibit is a great mix of technical presentations, industry interviews, and new product launches.  fuelcellmaterials will be on site with a booth and will be conducting an interview on our hydrogen sensor technology. 
 15th International Symposium on Solid Oxide Fuel Cells (SOFC-XV)
July 23-28, 2017
Diplomat Resort, Hollywood, FL, United States

SOFC-XV is a much smaller focused conference compared to FC Expo or Hannover, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t as valuable to attend.  The SOFC industry’s best and brightest present new materials, products and approaches to meet the demanding challenges that face our industry.  The organizers of SOFC-XV are Subhash Singhal (PNNL) and Tatsuya Kawada (Tohoku University), both of which are industry pioneers.  fuelcellmaterials will be on site with a booth and our parent company, Nexceris, will be giving a talk on interconnect coatings and SOFC stack technology.
