The story of SFC Energy Ltd.
Early in 2000, just after the Y2K scare and before the release of the first iPod, Smart Fuel Cell GmbH, a technology start-up from Brunnthal, Germany, became a pioneer in the commercialization of direct methanol fuel cells.

Curt Marchesi’s easygoing nature has been an asset in the evolving roles in his life — father turned grandfather; hockey coach turned Co-General Manager; and Technical Sales Representative turned Regional Sales Manager for SIMARK Grande Prairie. The secret, says Curt, is to embrace change and always keep growing.
“We chose the EFOY Pro Hybrid because it offered reliable remote power supply at a low cost. We’ve had a good experience with the EFOY Pro system — no problems so far. We appreciate the remote communication capability of the EFOY and the fact that it will automatically turn on to provide power when needed. I would recommend EFOY Pro, particularly for sites with high power intermittent loads.”

Tiger Woods once said, “I smile at obstacles.” It’s easy to imagine that Dustin Hullman does that too.
Dustin doesn’t shy away from a challenge. That’s apparent in both his personal and professional life. When he’s not at SIMARK working on business development opportunities for SFC EFOY fuel cells in the United States market, you’ll most likely find him on a golf course. Fortunately, he’s been able to keep busy with both despite the COVID-19 pandemic — and he does it all with a smile.
There’s no question: COVID-19 has resulted in massive changes to the way we live and work as individuals. Industry has also endured a tectonic-level shift and critical lessons in the way to approach operations going forward. Key among those lessons is the urgency for digital transformation in today’s industrial world.
We’ve all had the misfortune of sitting in a room listening to a speaker drone on about a topic they’re clearly disinterested in. But some of us know the magic of witnessing a subject matter expert who’s passionate about their subject — and even more passionate about sharing it with others. The latter description is what it’s like to hear Mark Phillips speak. Mark has merged his practical experience as a tradesperson with his background as a technical instructor, bringing all of that knowledge to SIMARK Academy sessions and his role as SIMARK Account Manager.
These days, a little help from our friends is even more welcome than usual. That’s why we’re grateful for organizations like PTAC that provide a platform for connection and knowledge sharing in the energy industry. We asked Marc Godin, PTAC’s Director of Technology for a quick rundown on PTAC’s mandate and the role of green energy solutions in the future of oil and gas extraction.
There are some special individuals in this world who are like the sun. If you’re lucky, you might know one of these sunny people, that type that share warmth and kindness with everyone around them.
