GE exec sees limited, niche market for fuel cells

|By:, SA News Editor

GE engineering chief Vlatko Vlatkovic says the company has studied fuel cell technology and sees only a limited, niche product: "It’s almost impossible to do a good fuel cell without platinum as a catalyst... Very little goes in, but if you scale it up, there’s not enough platinum in the world."

Battery names were mostly higher in today's trade: FCEL +0.8%, PLUG +6.8%, BLDP +5%, ZBB -3.1%.

This was corrected on 03/27/2014 at 08:23 PM. The item erroneously identified Plug Power CEO Andrew Marsh as CEO of FuelCell Energy.
