Ener1 (www.ener1.com), an alternative energy technology company, has announced that its EnerFuel (www.enerfuel.com) subsidiary has relocated its headquarters to a larger and better-equipped fuel cell facility the company recently leased in West Palm Beach, Florida. The 7,600-square-foot facility, formerly occupied by a fuel cell company, includes a laboratory for developing experimental materials and fuel cell testing stations, two key components EnerFuel considers necessary to develop fuel cells that will be more cost effective, smaller and less complex than existing fuel cell products.
“EnerFuel is focused on bringing to market fuel cell technologies for the portable power and uninterruptible power supply (UPS) markets and the new facility will be instrumental in allowing that to happen much quicker than previously had been hoped,” said Rex Hodge, the recently named President of EnerFuel and Executive Vice President of Ener1, Inc. “The new laboratory also allows EnerFuel to begin introducing unique fuel cell testing services for fuel cell-related companies and other customers in 2006,” he added.Most of EnerFuel’s team of 16 engineers and technicians will be located in the new headquarters. The phone number for the new facility is 561-868-6720. EnerFuel will continue to retain a laboratory and business presence in its facility located in Fort Lauderdale.
