Thank you for coming along to find out more about 4th.
My name is Kerry-Ann and I have been a fuel cell analyst / strategist / consultant in one form or another for a long time now. I have been in the industry through two hype cycles, but I am still here and I still see the potential for the sector to become a foundational technology in the 4th energy wave.
I’ve worked with hundreds of clients around the world, either on strategy, policy, analysis or simply as an old-fashioned sounding board over coffee (or beer). I have talked to just about every fuel cell company in the world, and kept in close contact with as many as possible, popping up at events around the world to talk and sometimes give the unpalatable truth. The one thing I don’t have is stocks or shares, or any form of direct financial investment in any fuel cell company. This is not because I don’t think they are a good investment, but because I need to be neutral at all times, and if I had a stake in one, that neutrality would go flying out of the window.
So why set up this company, and why now? Until recently the sector was moving slowly and doing its hardest to fail, but this has changed. Now more companies have product, more companies are edging closer to profit and more are realising that arguing amongst themselves is just plain stupid and damaging the industry as a whole. But for the industry to keep going, there is clearly a gap in the market for timely and honest support, which is where 4th Energy Wave comes in.
The aim of this company is to work with any stakeholder interested in the sector, helping them to see and understand opportunities and threats, and helping them to see the proverbial wood for the trees. This company will be your in-house fuel cell analyst team, your sounding board and your go-to resource when the news headlines are just not enough.
The company works in a different way to standard consulting houses in that I have, so you have, access to a team of associates. These associates represent the cream of the global fuel cell, hydrogen and energy storage industries. When a project is being sketched out part of my job is to work out who best to bring onto the project with me. I will always be honest and upfront with you as to who is working for you, on your project, and I guarantee the quality of everyone who works with me.
If you want to talk to me, you can always get hold of me on Kerryemail@example.com, call +44 131 6188059, or via Skype at Kerry-annadamson. If you prefer to talk face-to-face, I will be at the following events during 2016:
HFC 2016, Birmingham, UK, 15th March
Hannover Fair, 2016. Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Group Exhibit. Hannover, Germany 25 – 29th April
All Energy, 2016, Glasgow, Scotland. 4th – 5th May, 2015
And last, but by no means least, 4th Energy Wave is a proud member of the Scottish Fuel Cell And Hydrogen Association: http://www.shfca.org.uk/ and regularly attends members meetings.
