Notes to editors:

Voller Energy Group PLC

Voller Energy is one of the world's first commercial developers and
manufacturers of portable fuel cell systems for use as battery chargers and
mobile generators.

Voller Energy is initially targeting commercially attractive areas including the
cordless power tool, leisure boating, recreational vehicle and military markets.
These are likely to be early adopters of the technology as the benefits of using
fuels cells, such as low noise, no toxic emissions and health and safety issues,
are important drivers.  The portable power market is generally defined up to
10kW and is expected to be worth $17 billion by 2011 (Canadian Fuel Cell
Commercialisation Roadmap - Price Waterhouse Coopers, March 2003).
