Fuel Cells, Hydrogen and their Potential Impact on
Emerging Energy Challenges:
2015 Hydrogen Energy Center Annual Meeting and Presentation
Time: Thursday, April 16, 2015 from 4-6:00 pm.
Place: University of Southern Maine’s Abromson Center, room #216. Bedford St. Portland, Maine
An overview of the emerging global energy challenges and the potential impact of using fuel cells will be presented. Fuel cell technology, its applications, commercialization, and implementation will be addressed along with prospective hydrogen supply and infrastructure scenarios.
The talk will be followed by a Q&A session and a brief business meeting for the HEC to elect board members and officers. The event is free and open to the public, with refreshments provided.
ABOUT THE SPEAKER:
Glenn Eisman holds a Ph.D. in Physical Inorganic Chemistry from Northeastern University. He is an adjunct professor at both Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) and Union Graduate College. He has over 25 patents and 25 technical papers to his credit.
Dr. Eisman started membrane fuel cell research at The Dow Chemical Company, using the “infamous” chlor-alkali membrane. He is the former Chief Technology Officer at Plug Power and was the first Director of the Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Research Center at RPI.
At the national level, he has served on four National Academy of Engineering review committees supported by the US Department of Energy’s fuel cell and hydrogen fuel initiative.
Other Public Meetings
The Hydrogen Energy Center holds general membership meetings (which are open to the public) on the second Thursday of each month, from 6 - 8:00pm. The public is welcome to attend.
The meetings are held at the offices of the Greater Portland Council of Governments (GPCOG).
