Plug Power Inc. (PLUG), recently announced it has been awarded a $650,000 contract from the U.S. Department of Energy to demonstrate the use of hydrogen-based fuel cells to power the refrigeration units in semi-trailer trucks that transport perishable and frozen foods. Plug Power was selected by the Fuel Cell Technologies Office within the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) to showcase its fuel cells in transport refrigeration units (TRUs). These units are large air conditioners that regulate cold temperatures for items such as frozen pizza, fruits, vegetables, meats, dairy products and other goods that must be kept chilled or frozen during transport from distribution centers to retail destinations.
TiVo Inc. (TIVO) announced the highest net revenue and profit in the company's history and strong subscriber growth, causing the company to predict profits ahead for the foreseeable future. The company, which has mostly posted losses since the second half of 2009, said results for its second fiscal quarter and ongoing royalty payments stemming from patent litigation eased doubts about its long-term profitability. "Everyone has been asking that question about TiVo for a decade," said Tom Rogers, TiVo's chief executive, in an interview. Besides the growth, Mr. Rogers said the improvements in its financial footing will help TiVo invest in more research, buy back stock and market its new products.
