Important: Attending the dinner is optional. If you wish to come only for the presentation, that is fine. However, you must RSVP in either case! 
Please click here to RSVP by Friday, September 25th, 2015.  There is a limit of 50 people at this event.

Location: Proton OnSite in Wallingford

Event will occur at Proton OnSite, 10 Technology Dr., Wallingford, CT 06492.

From I-91 North or South, take Exit 15 (Route 68).  At the end of the exit ramp, go east on Route 68.  At the second light, take a left onto Research Parkway.  Proceed straight through 1 light (Bristol-Myers Squibb is on the right) and 1 stop sign (intersection of Carpenter Lane and Research Parkway).  Take the first right after the stop sign onto Technology Drive.  The facility is the building on the left

map Parking: Please park in a marked parking space in the back of the parking lot on your left.  These parking spaces are near the fueling station.  The closest steps to the fueling station lead to the Proton cafeteria where the dinner and presentation will take place.  See the photo map for details.

Larry Moulthrop, Vice President of Hydrogen Systems

Larry MoulthropLarry Moulthrop is the Vice President of Hydrogen Systems at Proton OnSite. Mr. Moulthrop is a system development professional and chemical engineer with over 37 years of experience in proton exchange membrane (PEM) based electrolysis systems, fuel cell systems, and hydrogen fueling.   In 1996, Mr. Moulthrop co-founded Proton OnSite to commercialize PEM water electrolysis and PEM regenerative fuel cell products. In 1999, Mr. Moulthrop led the product engineering teams that launched the HOGENŽ series of PEM based water electrolyzers. Currently, Mr. Moulthrop works with Proton's engineering and application teams to refine existing and develop new packaged hydrogen generator systems for vehicle fueling, renewable energy capture, telecom backup power, military applications, and other hydrogen system solutions. 

Mr. Moulthrop has served as the principal system architect for the SunHydro hydrogen fueling station platform and manages SunHydro station operations. He is the designated Program Coordinator for the Toyota Fuel Cell Hybrid Vehicle demonstration program underway at SunHydro LLC. Mr. Moulthrop manages intellectual property processes, product safety, and product certification processes, is very active in international hydrogen code and standard development, and is a member of the US DoE Hydrogen Safety Panel.  He personally holds 22 issued patents in the areas of PEM cell design and PEM system architecture through his work with Proton OnSite, United Technologies, and General Electric. He received his BSChE degree from the University of New Hampshire in 1978.
