I am a big believer in alternative energy....

The big attention getters have been cars and buses and the partnerships with the big auto makers, but personally I think the big potential here is actaully the 250Kw stationairy AC power plants.

Crossing over from the current thread on OPG, the problem with AC is you can't store it, so you have this whole huge infrastructure based around meeting peak loads. There is some potential here to run "clean" generating assets at full load all the time and use the excess to faction water and store the H, and then burn that off during peak demand periods with fuel cells, that way we could reduce demand for "dirty" generation which is mostly peaking power anyway.
