TORONTO, Ontario, October 24, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – Alkaline Fuel Cell Power Corp. (NEO: PWWR) (OTCQB:ALKFF) (Frankfurt: 77R, WKN: A3CTYF) (“AFCP” or the “Company”), a diversified investment platform developing affordable, renewable, and reliable energy assets and cleantech, is pleased to announce that the Canadian Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Association (“CHFCA”), a national industry association focused on advancing the use of clean hydrogen and fuel cell technologies, has elected AFCP’s CEO, Frank Carnevale, to its Board of Directors, effective October 13, 2022. AFCP joined the CHFCA as a Small Business Member in August of 2022.
Comprised of industry, academia, research agencies and other stakeholders, CHFCA’s goal is to champion the Canadian hydrogen and fuel cell sector as one of many solutions designed to help tackle the world’s most critical energy challenges. In addition, CHFCA focuses on arming businesses, investors, media, the general public and other stakeholders with fulsome knowledge about the opportunity and potential for hydrogen and fuel cells to play a key role in the energy transition. The position and mandate of CHFCA are well aligned with AFCP’s own mission to bring ‘PWWR to the People’ through our combined heat and power (“CHP”) technology that offers reduced emissions with improved energy efficiency, while also simultaneously developing hydrogen-powered micro-combined heat and power (“micro-CHP”) systems along with off-grid and back-up power generators featuring zero CO2 emissions to help meet global net-zero targets.
The CHFCA’s Board of Directors plays an active role in providing its management with valued oversight as well as overseeing its financial and governance policies. In addition to his experience serving as AFCP’s CEO, Mr. Carnevale brings extensive experience with managing investments in cleantech and PropTech platforms, including originating over $2.5 billion in transactions in energy and utilities sectors. Taking on this position with the nationally recognized and widely respected CHFCA serves to further elevate AFCP’s position as a thought leader within the hydrogen and fuel cell sector.
“I am very excited to have the opportunity to contribute to the CHFCA’s esteemed Board of Directors, and be a positive driver of change in the energy space,” says Frank Carnevale, Chief Executive Officer of Alkaline Fuel Cell Power Corp. “I intend to use this opportunity to assist educating key stakeholders on the benefits of hydrogen and the use of stationary fuel cells for residential and small building applications. The energy transition is a necessary evolution to achieve the international target of net-zero by 2050, and ensuring that small energy customers have the best opportunities to have affordable, renewable and reliable power, is a critical component of success for customers and AFCP.”
