Ohio Fuel Cell Coalition Logo

Symposium provides important forum for HFC community to highlight progress as fuel cells gain traction in race to replace fossil fuels

ELYRIA, OHIO, UNITED STATES, June 24, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Elyria, Ohio – The center of the hydrogen fuel cell world will be located in Columbus, Ohio on June 26 and 27 when the Ohio Fuel Cell Coalition (OFCC) raises the curtain on the 2019 Ohio Fuel Cell Symposium at the Quest Conference Center, 8405 Pulsar Place, Columbus, Ohio 43240. The Symposium, titled “Hydrogen and its Applications” is being held against a backdrop of increased domestic and international acceptance of hydrogen fuel cells as a viable alternative to fossil fuels and battery-electric power in a wide range of applications, including transportation, materials-handling, and energy generation and storage.

According to OFCC Executive Director Pat Valente, continued acceptance of fuel cells will pay huge dividends for Ohio which is already a leader in HFC R&D and manufacturing. “The competition to replace fossil fuels is growing in intensity every day,” he said. “The Symposium provides industry leaders from the public and private sector, academics, and scientists with an excellent opportunity to discuss how we can work together to capture a significant share of the domestic and international alternative energy market. If we do, studies show as many as 675,000 jobs will be created in the fuel cell sector between now and 2035—and that many of those jobs will be located right here in Ohio.”

While the roster of Symposium participants is impressive and includes a NASA scientist as well as the director of the National Fuel Cell Research Center, three presenters will share exciting news about growing interest in fuel cells in the U.S. and abroad and the ways in which they are working to turn that interest into increased use of fuel cells in the private and public sector:

 Andrew March, CEO of Plug Power, Inc., will discuss the company’s recent agreement to provide HFC engines to the German vehicle manufacturer StreetScooter. The engines will power delivery vans that will be placed in service in Germany by DHL. In a press release about the agreement, Mr. March noted that the European Union is committed to reducing CO2 emissions via the use of HFC technology by 2020. Plug Power is already the world’s largest manufacturer/supplier of fuel cells that power materials handling equipment used by WalMart, Amazon, and other companies.

 Kirt Conrad, CEO of the Stark Area Regional Transit Authority (SARTA) and Chair of the OFCC will discuss the success of SARTA’s unique Borrow A Bus program which was unveiled during last year’s Symposium which was held at Stark State College in Canton, Ohio. Under the unique program, SARTA, which operates one of the largest fleets of HFC-powered buses in the world, allows transit systems to “borrow” a fuel cell bus for two or three days free of charge.

The goal of the program: show that HFC power is the most effective and efficient way for transit systems and other transportation providers to meet their sustainability and zero emissions goals. The response: overwhelmingly positive. Every system that has borrowed a bus is now actively considering adding HFC vehicles to its fleet.

 Steve Ellis, manager of fuel cell marketing for American Honda Motor Company, will discuss the carmakers HFC program and the company’s efforts to develop a network of H2 fueling stations needed to facilitate the sale and use of HFC vehicles across the United States.

The Symposium will begin Wednesday, June 26th at 2:30 P.M with the invitation-only Supply Chain Exchange then continues with the Exhibitors Showcase and Networking Reception for all Symposium attendees from 5:00 P.M. to 8:00 P.M. The symposium will reconvene on Thursday, June 27th at 8:30 A.M and conclude at 4:00 P.M. Participants will also have the opportunity to view and ride one of SARTA’s HFC-powered buses during the Symposium. Members of the media are invited to attend the Symposium. Presenters will be available for interviews throughout the event.

Canalys: Economic weakness slows worldwide infrastructure shipment growth to 5% in Q1 2019.

Worldwide infrastructure market growth rate by segment

Worldwide infrastructure market growth rate by segment

Worldwide infrastructure top vendors Q119

Latest research from Canalys shows that the worldwide growth rate for server, storage and networking infrastructure shipments slowed to 4.8% in Q1 2019.

The longer the US-China trade war goes on, the more of an impact it will have on economies and business investment. Confidence is starting to decline around the world”

— Matthew Ball, Principal Analyst

PORTLAND, SINGAPORE, SHANGHAI, READING (UK), June 24, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The latest research from leading global analyst firm Canalys shows that the worldwide growth rate for server, storage and networking infrastructure shipments slowed to 4.8% in Q1 2019, as the total market value reached US$38.8 billion. This comes after a stellar 2018, when the growth rate for the full year reached 16.3%. A marked slowdown in capital expenditure by the hyperscale cloud builders, combined with ongoing weakness in service provider spending, the end of the mainframe refresh cycle, and smaller expansion in enterprise server and storage sales were the main factors. Nevertheless, the total shipment value was still US$1.8 billion higher compared with a year ago. But the outlook for the rest of the year is uncertain, as the fallout from escalating trade disputes starts to affect global trade and economic performance.

All three technology segments were positive in Q1, with servers slowing the most. Shipments grew 3.7% during the quarter against 39.2% in the same period a year ago. “Vendors have become accustomed to high double-digit percentage growth rates over the last 18 months, fueled by rising ASPs, due to server refresh, component price rises and demand for higher configurations to support more compute-intensive workloads. But this is cooling, with ASPs starting to stabilize and unit shipments falling,” said Canalys Principal Analyst Matthew Ball. “Server refresh is still ongoing in businesses, but greater emphasis is being placed on integrating multi-cloud services with existing on-premises resources as part of hybrid-IT strategies and simplifying operations.” The fall in server unit shipments has been stronger among hyperscale cloud builders, which have switched to consuming capacity after making big investments last year. This is expected to continue for at least the next quarter.

Storage shipment growth also slowed in Q1 2019, to 4.6%, compared with 19.8% in Q1 2018. All-flash arrays and hyperconverged infrastructure remain key investment areas for customers. Data management will be a critical part of hybrid-IT strategies, as businesses look to optimize multiple storage resources to store, process and analyze the increasing volume and variety of data being produced. Networking was the only infrastructure segment to register stronger growth than last year, albeit at a relatively low level, increasing 6.5%. Refresh of campus networks continued and the transition to Wi-Fi 6 gained traction, while data center switching was flat. SD WAN has emerged as a key growth opportunity, as businesses optimize and secure branch access to cloud-based services.

For full-year 2019, Canalys forecasts worldwide infrastructure shipments will grow 6.4%. “IT infrastructure growth was always going to be slower this year, as maintaining the high rates recorded in the in the last six quarters was not sustainable. The longer the US-China trade war goes on, the more of an impact it will have on economies and business investment. Confidence is starting to decline around the world, with central banks prepared to inject stimulus measures if the situation worsens,” added Ball. Vendors have already faced multiple challenges this year linked to the trade war, in terms of managing supply chains to reduce exposure to US tariffs and shifting manufacturing from China. The short-lived threat of tariffs on imports from Mexico would have made the situation even more challenging for vendors.

The top three infrastructure market leaders in Q1 2019 were Cisco, Dell EMC and Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE), which collectively accounted for 52.1% of total shipments. This increased from 50.5% a year ago. Cisco continued to dominate each segment of the networking market, while Dell EMC made further gains in the channel in both servers and storage. HPE remained the leading challenger in all segments, with its Aruba wireless LAN business taking further share. Huawei was the fourth largest vendor, accounting for 7.3%. It is arguably facing the biggest supply chain challenges among any of the top four vendors, given the US Executive Order signed on 15 May.

Briq recruits Gaming and AI Expert to Revolutionize Prediction in Construction

EA Head of Intelligent Systems joins Briq

Briq adds John Kolen, Electronic Arts Head of Intelligent Systems as VP of Engineering

SANTA BARBARA, CA, USA, June 24, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Briq has appointed Electronic Arts (EA) Head of Intelligent Systems and former Google AI expert Dr. John Kolen to spearhead its construction-focused data science, machine learning and artificial intelligence strategies.

At EA, Dr. Kolen was responsible for developing the billion-dollar gaming company’s AI and data-driven tactics around player retention and gaming improvements for hundreds of millions of gamers across titles like Madden NFL, FIFA Football and Fortnite. Prior to EA, Dr. Kolen worked on Google’s Web Search Infrastructure as part of the TeraGoogle team building a trillion-document index.

Bassem Hamdy, the CEO and CoFounder of Briq, believes this new hire signals a broader trend for construction data analytics.

“John’s addition to the team is not just a great win for Briq, but also for the construction industry at large. With this addition, we’ve brought in deep, mainstream tech expertise to solve some of construction’s most burning questions. Briq is building the most valuable construction data platform to provide unparalleled insights on the millions of data points in construction, and this hire clearly signifies an integral step towards that mission.”

Briq is seeing rapid adoption in the construction industry. The company is growing 300% quarterly and has demonstrated a clear acceptance of machine learning assistance on the difficult questions a construction professional faces each and every day.

The last several years have sparked renewed interested in construction technology, but only recently has it attracted talent from more mainstream companies like Google, Facebook, and Amazon.

Dr. Kolen’s arrival at Briq is a rare crossover from mainstream technology to construction technology but indicates that helping to solve the problem of low margins and high overhead costs is indeed possible with smarter data intelligence.

Dr. Kolen is an early innovator in the application of artificial intelligence, distributed systems, neural networks and cognitive science. His research topics include neural networks, cognitive science, and algorithms and he holds seven US patents, with more than twenty active applications. Dr. Kolen received his Masters and Ph.D. in computer science from The Ohio State University. His B.A. in computer science is from the University of California, San Diego.
