RE: Our outdated website need attention11 Oct 2019 08:59
Hi BumbleB - I totally agree with you that we should have a working product as a priority but we have more than engineers working at AFC - it's an admin task where the information can be obtained from CEO/Marketing
RE: Come on AFC you are obligated10 Oct 2019 14:11
I've just had a quick look at the website again - it looks good and is informative however I think the projects should be reviewed and updated in line with current and 'live' MOUs etc. I don't think it's a big ask/task
Is it complete arrogance, ineptitude or sheer incompetence that AFC Energy don't see the need for an accurate and up-to-date website ? What possible reasons would they give to us that would justify not having this in place? This is what is bugging me the most to be honest.
Like everyone else, I am very frustrated with seeming lack of progress, and posters are right to raise the questions being asked.
It is incredible that we don't have an up-to-date and factually correct website if AFC are so close to commercialisation. This is their shop window to the world and anyone looking at the current website will be clearly misled and leave very quickly ! No wonder the SP is where it is!
We are left wondering about our key markets still - EV charging or ESCO or diesel displacement and yes, where is ammonia heading - as far as I'm aware we don't have much to show for either at the moment ! No wonder the SP is where it is !
Yes I'm frustrated, yes I'm tired of limping from one autumn to another and with the environment very much in the public eye (and I suspect it will gather even more momentum), this is an ideal opportunity for AFC Energy to get out there and make ourselves known ! I've been invested here for 10 years almost - I still believe in AFC and I still want to pay for my children's education if that's even possible. I believe in the positive environmental impact of AFC and that's what led me to invest throughout those 10 years. I hope AFC are respectful to a very committed set of PIs
I think your observations re the sales guys, is worth highlighting. You're not wrong that most people will update their profiles to state who they are now working for - I certainly do when I move contract roles with new organisations. You would also think this would be more prevalent with Sales people who tend to be very competitive and are more likely to want to "advertise" their current projects and associations. Do these guys have a website ? If not, why not ? I am worried that AFC are sporadically making the right noises to us as investors (i.e. stating manufacturing partnerships, robot, sales etc) but there is a hidden agenda that will leave us with nothing after all these years of supporting them. It's just a feeling as nothing would surprise me anymore with AFC - we need complete transparency!
I do however look forward to this quarter with much anticipation - AFC have placed a lot of emphasis on Q4 2019 and I really do hope they start producing the goods that will truly see us as a commercial outfit with a clear route to markets and contracts signed for production order(s).
Multi Source Power website is pretty much non-existent but you can download a brochure. What is it with companies these days - everyone these days looks at a website to get an initial view of a company - a brochure only offering is a bit 20th Century !
Hi DW - I've often thought this, especially with this high power density cell AFC were working on but not sure what applications it was developed for - have we heard anymore since ? Shipping, ferries, trains, trucks would appear to be an ideal market for AFC to get into ?
I find that impossible to believe that a prospective chairman wouldn't know what an ESCO was ! They would surely have discussed this at the interview, as ESCO was always the original model for the company. Yes, things have clearly moved on in recent times but... ! :-O
Great news that this RNS has come so closely on the back of the earlier RNS this week. Fantastic of course that De Nora are now very bullish about AFCs tech and we have he potential to be the best (efficiency, longevity & cost) in the market. As manufacturers of our electrodes they can clearly see future profit for themselves with multiple orders coming through. They have already invested heavily in AFC via the JDA so this extension is clearly worth their continued investment. My only reservation is in line with iWantThatOne in as much as I was hoping we'd see confirmation of 4 years longevity in the coming quarter - we may get this of course but it's not clear, which is understandable. We've seen the EV Charger mentioned a lot recently - I suspect this is where initial orders may stem from as units will be small and scaleable for a steady rollout if we are to address load on the grid. For that to happen of course, we need cheap hydrogen to fulfil ?
