Item 1.01 Conflict Minerals Disclosure and Report
FuelCell Energy, Inc. (the “Company”) performed a reasonable country of origin inquiry (RCOI) with its suppliers. The RCOI process included written correspondence with the Company’s suppliers inquiring as to whether any conflict minerals are used or not used in materials procured by the Company, whether any conflict minerals are obtained solely from recycled or scrap materials and whether the minerals are obtained from the Democratic Republic of Congo or an adjoining country (a “covered country”). The fuel cell power plants sold by the Company consist of fuel cell modules and remaining balance of plant. The fuel cell modules do not utilize conflict minerals as defined by the Securities and Exchange Commission. Certain components of the balance of plant utilize trace amounts of industrial metals that are defined by the Securities and Exchange Commission as conflict minerals.
The information discussed above is also available at www.fuelcellenergy.com. The website and the information accessible through it are not incorporated into this specialized disclosure report.
