Fuel Cell and Microturbine Technology Gains International Acclaim

The Bedford Report Provides Equity Research on Capstone Turbine & Ballard Power

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Jul 19, 2011) - Fuel cells and microturbines are becoming popular energy management solutions as surging oil prices have begun to dampen the strength of the global economic recovery. Fuel cells and microturbines can operate on a variety of fuels, including natural gas and renewable fuels such as landfill gas and digester gas. The Bedford Report examines the outlook for companies in the Alternative Energy Sector and provides stock analysis on Capstone Turbine Corporation (NASDAQ: CPST) and Ballard Power Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: BLDP) (TSX: BLD). Access to the full company reports can be found at:

Fuel cells convert the stored energy in fuels like natural gas or hydrogen gas into electricity without combustion. They are somewhat similar to batteries, although fuel must be fed continuously to them. Fuel cells have been accused of being expensive, leading competitors such as Capstone Turbine to argue that microturbines hold a brighter future. Microturbines are small power generation systems using a gas turbine engine, based on related turbines used in transportation.
