2013 Supply Chain Exchange
Wednesday, April 3, 2013 from 8:30 AM to 11:30 AM (EDT)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
The Northeast Electrochemical Energy Storage Cluster (NEESC) will host a Supply Chain Exchange for the hydrogen and fuel cell industry supply chain in the Northeast region. This cluster creates business opportunities for a wide range of component, product and service suppliers throughout this region. Your company may have the product, service or production capability needed by OEMs in this growing industry.
This event will feature:
- A dynamic "Matchmaking" session with one-on-one meetings between OEMs and potential suppliers including:
AvCarb Material Solutions (formerly Ballard Material Products)
ClearEdge Power (formerly UTC Power)
Infinity Fuel Cell & Hydrogen Inc.
Nuvera Fuel Cells Inc.
Precision Combustion Inc.
- These firms are shopping for the following products, components and services –
Electrode development and supply
Fluid/gas flow components
Heat treating services
High-temperature metal alloys
Metal and diffusion bonding
Plating and corrosion protection
- Networking session for suppliers to meet with one another and with federal, state, and regional resources, including:
Massachusetts Office of International Trade and Investment
Massachusetts Clean Energy Center
Massachusetts Small Business Development Center
Connecticut Small Business Development Center
Connecticut Department of Economic and Community Development
Association of Cleantech Incubators of New England (ACTION)
Who should attend? Energy professionals, component and materials suppliers, service providers, business leaders, and anyone that wants to buy from or sell to hydrogen and fuel cell companies in the Northeast region.
The Northeast Energy and Commerce Association (NECA) has partnered with NEESC on this event that will integrate energy and commerce for enhanced business development in the Northeast.

About NEESC - www.neesc.org
The Northeast Electrochemical Energy Storage Cluster is a network of industry, academic, government and non-governmental leaders working together to provide energy storage solutions. The cluster is focused on the innovative development, production, promotion and deployment of hydrogen fuels and fuel cells to meet the pressing demand for energy storage solutions.NEESC supports the electrochemical energy storage cluster in the Northeast through business services that include training, counseling, mentoring, technology transfer/commercialization, export readiness, manufacturing assistance, market development, and incubator assistance. These activities will lead to increased US based market share, economic activity, productivity, technology deployment, and job creation. NEESC is supported by the US Small Business Administration and administered by the Connecticut Center for Advanced Technology, Inc. (CCAT).
About Western New England University College of Engineering - www.wne.edu/
Western New England University, a private university in Springfield, MA, is renowned for their high quality teaching, as well as growing research program. The University is committed to being a leader regionally, and recognized nationally, in providing integrated professional and liberal learning. Drawing upon its core colleges, Arts and Sciences, Business, Engineering, Pharmacy, and Law, it strives to educate future leaders of these realms. Through local, national, and international partnerships, researchers at the University engage in both fundamental, as well as system level analysis of fuel cell and other electrochemical energy technologies. Recently, a collaboration with Lawrence Berkeley National Lab has allowed for faculty to further their understanding of material properties critical for next generation gas-diffusion media. Ongoing projects include, but are not limited to: fuel cell materials characterization, system modeling, cell diagnostics, neutron & x-ray based radiography/tomography, advanced flow-field design and hydrogen storage technology. Chemists and engineers are currently synthesizing Proton Exchange Membranes utilizing a technology pioneered in-house (i.e. pseudo-polyelectrolytes (pPE)), which may provide alternatives to Nafion in the future. Western New England strives to become a leader in energy based technologies research in the northeast corridor, and is seeking further collaborative partners.
