Neah Power’s BuzzBar Suite(R) Launch Empowers African Classrooms

Indiegogo Campaign Demonstrates Power to “Go Anywhere. Take Charge.”

BOTHELL, WA, Sep 16, 2014 — Neah Power Systems Inc. (OTCBB: NPWZ) (‘Neah’), an innovator and supplier of cutting-edge power solutions for the military, transportation and portable electronics industries, is proud to launch their Indiegogo campaign for its BuzzBar Suite and a partnership to bring computing power to rural African classrooms using the recently released BuzzBar(R) Suite of products. The BuzzBar(R) is a new groundbreaking product that enables off-the-grid recharging of mobile consumer electronics using solar, grid, or proprietary fuel cell technology. If you frequently travel or go “off-grid” for any length of time, you will need a power source for your critical electronics. The BuzzBar Suite provides a simple power solution for anyone who needs “power to go.” This BuzzBar Suite can also be a life-saving product in an emergency.

Neah is partnering with the Asante Africa Foundation, a not-for-profit 503(c) corporation deploying tablet computers into remote African classrooms through their “Classroom in a Box” program, which will provide rich teaching material and expose children to content they would otherwise not have access to. Schools in remote villages are far from the grid and therefore require alternative power solutions. For every 25 BuzzBar Suite units sold, Neah Power will donate one BuzzBar Suite to Asante Africa Foundation.

“We believe there is a strong demand for a simple device that can enable people to go farther and travel longer with their vital electronics. There is nothing quite like the BuzzBar Suite,” said Dr. Chris D’Couto, CEO of Neah Power Systems. “We are eager to showcase the product’s power and are excited to bring the potential of Indiegogo(R) to this effort. Partnering with Asante Africa Foundation allows us to do good and further a very worthy cause.”

“We are pleased to partner with Neah Power Systems to deploy these products and enable a 21st Century learning experience to the children in Africa,” said Erna Grasz, CEO of Asante Africa Foundation.

Different perks reap different acknowledgment gifts. For example, a donation of $40 will provide the benefactor with a t-shirt, and a donation will be made to Asante Africa Foundation. A donation of $149 will provide you with the BuzzBar(TM) Suite: a BuzzBar, a BuzzSol and a BuzzBat. Other perks provide other product combinations. The BuzzCell is expected to ship in Q4 2014. Visit the campaign on Indiegogo for a complete list of the perks offered.

NEAH Power Discusses Fuel Cells in Cars on Autos 0-60 Radio Show

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 3:33 PM on Friday, July 25th, 2014

NPWZ: OTCQB

Fuel cell technology was first used in space crafts in the 1960s and 70s. Today, Hyundai introduced the first fuel cell powered vehicle. Alternative Energy gets enormous attention and funding but many Solar/Micro-Grid solutions have weather-related drawbacks while fuel cell technology use oxygen and hydrogen as fuel to create electricity.

Will Fuel Cell Powered cars become a reality? How does it work? Are they safe? Consumers are curious and hoping to hear from experts other than just the car-makers.

One of the main issues to-date with the adoption of fuel cells for cars is compressed hydrogen has had associated safety issues when used in automobiles. How is one company providing a solution to this barrier?

Neah Power’s patent-pending technology enables the use of a liquid, safe fuel (formic acid) for automotive applications without the associated costs of a dedicated hydrogen generation plant or the safety and handling issues associated with the use of compressed hydrogen. In addition, formic acid could leverage the existing gasoline distribution infrastructure for enabling zero emission transportation.

Neah Power Systems Presents Patent Pending Technology for Automotive and Grid Scale Fuel Cells

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 6:50 AM on Thursday, May 29th, 2014

BOTHELL, Wash., May 29, 2014 — Neah Power Systems, Inc., (OTCBB:NPWZ), a provider of proprietary power solutions, announced the publication of a white paper on the website (www.neahpower.com) discussing patent pending technology that allows a safe and high energy density, point of use hydrogen generation technology, that is suited for automotive fuel cells and grid scale fuel cells.

Neah Power CEO Chris D’Couto said, “We are in preliminary discussions with a fuel cell company to license the technology for certain grid scale applications, and we are identifying appropriate automotive partners for this technology, opening up new Served Available Markets (SAM) that are very significant.”

Neah Power CEO, Chris D’Couto, continued, “This compelling technology allows the use of a safe and easily handled liquid fuel, formic acid, to generate hydrogen on demand for automotive and grid scale applications. This could potentially eliminate various safety, handling, cost, and distribution issues currently seen with compressed hydrogen for automotive applications. For grid scale applications, this technology could eliminate the need for onsite hydrogen generation plants that are commonly co-installed with grid scale fuel cells.”
