CHBC-LMU Hydrogen & Fuel Cells Business Exchange May 27, 2015 Technology Tour

Register at http://cba.lmu.edu/fuelcell/

Loyola Marymount University has hosted LMU Business Exchange events on the Westchester campus in Los Angeles since 2004, with the goal of attracting local business professionals to help them become more familiar with LMU’s great programs. A key feature of the LMU Business Exchange (LMUBX) is to allow participants to engage in “hot topic” conversations in a group setting. The groups then pose crafted questions to speakers/panelists for discussion. The most recent (LMUBX) event took place in February 2015 and attracted an audience of around 60 professionals. A key benefit of attending a LMUBX event is the ability to network with like-minded business leaders and invited special-topic experts in a supportive, fertile, and confidential setting featuring a rich exchange of ideas, feedback and valuable resource contacts.

The focus of this event is on the ability of hydrogen and fuel cells to help move businesses forward today. Speakers will be from hydrogen and fuel cell sectors covering material handling (forklifts), goods movement, stationary power generation, energy storage, and transportation. The speakers will talk about the success of real world applications and projects where hydrogen and fuel cells worked hand-in-hand with business efficiencies to achieve positive results. The result of this event is a higher level of understanding among local professionals who currently lack awareness of the hydrogen and fuel cell industry and the benefits for their businesses.

The target audience is high-level decision makers and executives from local businesses in the Los Angeles area. Their mindset is to look for alternative energy applications to be used within their organizations and make connections within the hydrogen industry. “Silicon Beach” is just below the bluff of LMU where there is fertile ground for technology-oriented professionals to come learn about hydrogen and fuel cells. Participants will be charged $25 for attendance to cover parking and refreshments.

Supply Chain Exchange and Partnership Development Workshop May 05, 2016 Meeting

Background

Under Executive Order B-16-2012, Governor Jerry Brown has called for the expansion of “the private sector’s role in the supply chain for zero-emission vehicle component development and manufacturing.” In pursuit of this objective, GO-Biz is working to understand and expand California’s hydrogen refueling station supply chain. It is supported by APEP, which is a sub-recipient of a US Department of Energy grant to facilitate the development and expansion of a robust supply chain for hydrogen and fuel cell systems and components. CHBC seeks to expand the array of component and equipment providers for its members in order promote competition and reduce the cost for commercial products.

Format

When attendees register for the event, they will provide contact information and their company’s profile. After the registration process has closed, the information from this database will be assembled into an aggregate digital booklet that attendees can access before and after the workshop.

The workshop will consist of two categories of attendees: system integrators and participants. “System integrators” refer to those individuals who, on behalf of their respective company, will make a ten-minute presentation. There will be a number of system integrators, each of whom will concisely define what her company’s hydrogen supply chain needs are and the specific products and services that her company wants to acquire in the near- and long-term. “Participants” refer to everyone else at the workshop aside from the system integrators. They will comprise of representatives from companies that are currently engaged or considering participation in California’s hydrogen supply chain.

Once the presentations have concluded, attendees will participate in a “matchmaking” process.  Based on an established schedule, each attendee will have nine minutes to speak with a system integrator for a specific timeframe. A survey will be sent out beforehand where attendees, based on the information in the digital booklet, can rank which three system integrators they want to speak with the most. The schedule will be crafted in accordance with these rankings. Within a specific time block, attendees who are currently not talking with a system integrator can network with other unoccupied attendees.

A moderator will help facilitate transitions throughout the workshop. After the closing remarks, attendees can independently network with one another at a location outside of the center.

H2 Heavy Duty Trucking Workshop at ACT Expo May 01, 2017 Meeting

The movement of freight and goods from the commercial ports to consumers represents a vital component of U.S. transportation infrastructure and the U.S. economy.  Seaports and distribution networks are economic drivers for jobs and development, and entry points for goods used throughout the country. They also cause significant local air and greenhouse gas emissions, and the medium/heavy duty truck fleets that move goods from ports cause problems well beyond the boundaries of the ports.  The environmental footprint is significant, both because of the volume of activity and because ports/distribution centers tend to be located in areas that already experience heavy automobile and truck traffic that create smog, particulate matter, and ozone pollution. Areas of California suffer environmental conditions that cause breathing and heart-related health problems and health costs.

Hydrogen-fueled fuel cell electric vehicles are entering the California automobile vehicle market, and hydrogen fuel cell fork lift trucks are commercially purchased by product distribution centers and factories today.  More than ever, it becomes noticeable that there are variety of potential hydrogen and fuel cell on and off road vehicles, including cargo handling equipment, that generate zero emissions energy at the point of use, and “well to wheels” zero emission energy when the hydrogen is produced from renewable sources, everyone’s long term goal.

Proposed Attendees/Invitees:

  • Trucking Companies
  • Fleet Operators
  • Medium/Heavy Duty Vehicle OEMs
  • Hydrogen Technologies Providers
  • Equipment OEMs and Integrators
  • Government Funding Agencies (Freights focused)
