Hi chilting, in the annual report of 4th Oct the "operations update" mentioned larger scale production in the Uk and also partnering to produce elsewhere in the future. I would love to know who the 5th OEM will be???

Microsoft Is Getting Hungry for Fuel Cells

Microsoft Corp. is moving to use fuel cells at its power-hungry server farms, saying the technology may double the efficiency of energy used.

The software company is testing how it can use the devices to generate electricity and plans to install a 10-megawatt fuel cell within a few years at a cost of about $45 million.

£This technology is very, very disruptive, and we£re investing a lot of time and money into it,£ said Sean James, principal research program manager at Microsoft£s R&D program on energy strategy. £We could almost double the energy efficiency. We£ve been able to model and measure in the lab that with fuel cells.£

Once so expensive that they were only used in laboratories and space projects, fuel cells have spread to more commercial applications seeking lower-pollution forms of energy. They generate electricity through a chemical reaction involving natural gas, hydrogen or a biofuel. Companies developing them including Ballard Power Systems Inc., Ceres Power Holdings Plc and FuelCell Energy Inc. are also seeking to put them into home heating and to extend the range of electric vehicles.......

While it will be using natural gas in its fuel cells at first, it will seek to procure a clean fuel such as hydrogen made from renewable energy in a similar fashion that it signs power purchase agreements with solar and wind developers, James said.

While Microsoft would like to install fuel cells in its data centers as soon as possible, the industry is nascent and it£s not possible to buy the devices at the scale that the company would need, according to James.

£Essentially what we want to do is get out of R&D as soon as possible and actually use them to power the data center, we hope to do that as soon as possible,£ he said. £Unfortunately we have a supply chain issue. I need hundreds of megawatts of these things.£

Slip, sliding around
26 Oct '17
Waited, watched, reviewed and researched. Added - lots. Inevitably sp fell again! Then up . . then down. Still convinced about this but could do with a meteoric rise to convince the dear wife. Back to watching and waiting.

There is no specific reason as far as I am aware, it's just typical AIM drift in that without a very regular good-news stream, prices drift downwards until the MMs decide to give it a little bump or until a 'Good News' story is released.

Have I missed something? Is there a reason for this steady tick down?

This article gives an idea of what Microsoft are looking to achieve using fuel cells in their data centres. The potential is clearly enormous!
