What is better for a swiss mountain top home- re today's rns, electricity produced by a petrol driven generator or a BG run on bottled gas, or directly off a hydropower mains system? Maybe BG finds a useful slot in remote areas?
I don''t want to be a wet blanket but saw this in on my ARN site today - caution needed at moment:
Greggs (LON: GRG) was downgraded by analysts at Espirito Santo Investment Bank Research from a "neutral" rating to a "sell" rating. They now have a GBX 340 ($5.22) price target on the stock, down previously from GBX 450 ($6.90).
..... The Loan Notes may be converted into New Ordinary Shares at any time by the Loan Note Holders. The Company has the ability to convert the Loan Notes in whole or in part from 3 November 2014, provided that the average share price of the Company's Ordinary Shares has been above 10 pence per Ordinary Share for a period of at least 20 consecutive business days.
You are now appointed official unofficial cfcl bb advisor. As I said earlier, one should not fear negative comment on the bb's! I will keep my eye open for your comments on other bbs too. Maybe the 'bigs' are hoping the coy will go into administration to pick up the ip on the cheap?
or maybe it'll come back with shares consolidated to reduce the number in issue? You're right though. Investing for the long term is very, very risky. I've lost quite a bit of my cash thinking these small companies will come good, but they rarely do. Hope I'm wrong.
Here is the translation see below post of an article about the German company Bruns GmbH, who are CFC's partner - see Saab's article below.
Various German state ministers took a big interest in the fuel cell system on show by Bruns GmbH at the 2011 Hannover Fair, so if these guys are interested, then they will be spreading the word around! (I live in Germany).
Umweltminister Hans-Heinrich Sander hat anlässlich der Hannover Messe den Gewinner des Landeswettbewerbs „Innovative Forschungs- und Entwicklungsprojekte 2010 im Bereich Energieeffizienz" auf der Hannover Messe 2011 ausgezeichnet. Gleichzeitig stellte die Fa. Bruns GmbH Ihr nächstes Projekt auf der Hannover Messe vor : Die Brennstoffzelle, ein Gemeinschaftsprojekt der Firmen EWE (Energieversorger in Oldenburg, CFCL Modulhersteller aus Australien und der Fa. Bruns. Mit dieser Technologie wird im Einfamilienhaus eine eigenständig arbeitende Gasbrennwertheizung mit einer ganzjährig arbeitenden Hochtemperatur-Brennstoffzelle (SOFC) gekoppelt. Hier wird mittels der benannten Hochtemperatur-Brennstoffzelle (SOFC) das Erdgas reformiert ( veredelt ) und in Strom umgewandelt. Die Brennstoffzelle erzeugt ca. 2 kW/h Strom das heißt, dass hier durch diesen ganzjährigen Betrieb ca. 18000 kW/h Strom per Jahr erzeugt werden können. Der Eigenverbrauch liegt in der Regel im Einfamilienhaus zwischen 5000 und 7500 Kilowattstunden per Jahr. Durch den Eigenverbrauch und Stromverkauf an die Versorgungsunternehmen wird sich eine solche Technologie schnell amortisieren lassen. Natürlich war hier auch nicht nur der Niedersächsische Umweltminister Dr. Sander sondern unter anderem auch Wirtschaftsminister Dr. Bode und eine Anzahl von Landtags- und Bundestagsmandatsträger sehr an der Technologie Entwicklung der Fa. Bruns GmbH interessiert. Hier Urkundenvergabe der Landesregierung durch Umweltminister Dr. Sander an den Vertriebsleiter der Fa. Bruns Herrn Ralf Küßner
At the 2011 Hanover Fair, Environment Minister Hans-Heinrich Sander honored the winners of the state competition "Innovative research and development projects in 2010 in the area of ​​energy efficiency". Bruns GmbH introduced their next project at the Hanover Fair: The fuel cell, a joint project of EWE companies, CFCL module producers (Australia) and Bruns GmbH. With this technology, an independently operating gas condensing boiler is coupled to a high temperature fuel cell (SOFC - solid oxide fuel cell) in a family house. The high-temperature fuel cell converts refined gas into electricity. The fuel cell generates about 2 kWh of electricity, which is about 18,000 kWh of electricity per year. The power consumption in a family house is usually 5000-7500 kilowatt-hours per year, so after fulfilling one's own consumption needs, the sale of surplus electricity to the utilities company will quickly recoup the cost of such technology . Of course, not only the Lower Saxony Environment Minister Dr. Sander was interested in this technology - the Finance Minister, Dr. Bode and a number of state and federal elected officials were also interested in this technology development by Bruns GmbH. This certificate was award by the State Government Environment Minister
I am a shareholder but only an occasional bb visitor so apologies for delay in replying. I think it is vital that clear, negative opinions are given about a company. This way everyone is made aware of the risks. If the sp goes up everyone wins. That said, if cfu has enough funding for around a year, what will the sales be by then? Any estimates anyone? cfc is a longer term play, top up on the lows imo. Let us know when the next cash call is to happen, then we can get them cheaper still!
Yes, it looks like the uCHP is beginning to take off now. There's nothing like a bit of competition. They will advertise their presence and products in the press getting uCHP noticed further. Thanks Saab1 for the reminder. There are farms and companies that use bio waste to extract methane from it, see link.
Close! I thought you might have known about Alliander thinking you were of your forefathers' nationality. Anyway, great news in this morning's rns about the UK project. I could do with a bluegen in my caravan up in the Pennines - a bit quieter than a generator. Wasn't someone asking about the UK a couple of weeks ago?
You have a dutch sounding handle? true? Re your comment, I couldn't agree more. I've added. I think it will get 'spotted' soon. My only concern is the 1.5bn shares in issue. Could lead to a consolidation.
