Contact us today and turn your electrical equirements into a powerful competitive advantage.Company History FuelCell Energytraces its roots back to 1969 and the founding of Energy Research Corporation (ERC)by early fuel cellpioneer Bernard BakerandMartin Klein, a chemical engineer that was anexpert in advanced battery technologies. The company focused on conducting researchto commercialize fuel cell technology. ERC also conducted advanced battery research, but spun off its battery efforts as a seperate company in 1999 and renamed itself FuelCell Energy.In the 1970's, with funding from the U.S. military and utility companies,the companyconducted extensive research into low-temperature fuel cells as well as silver-zinc battery cells. In the 1980's and 1990's the company switched its focus to high-temperature carbonate fuel cell systems whichoffered greater commercial possibilities due to the ability to internally reform readily available fuels into the hydrogen required by the fuel cell.A major milestone for the company was reached in 1992 when it successfully demonstrated a 120 kilowatt (kW) high temperature carbonate fuel cell system. The companywent public with an initial stock offering that raised $6.5 million. The company continued to improve its patented Direct FuelCell (DFC) technology, and in 1996 a 2 megawatt (MW) DFC power plant went online in Santa Clara, California.In 1997, Bernard Baker decided that the company needed a more commercially-oriented leader and appointed Jerry Leitman to the position of CEO. With Leitman at the helm, and Baker able to pursue his own passion, research & development, the company continued to thrive. FuelCell Energy's current leader, R. Daniel Brdar, was appointed CEO in 2005 and chairman in 2007. Mr. Brdar has led the expansion of the company's market penetration while maintaining a focus on cost reduction. The company currently possesses a product line offering systems from 300 kilowatts (kW) to 2.8 megawatts (MW), scalable up to 50 MW.R. Daniel Brdar, was appointed CEO in 2005 and Chairman in 2007.
