Wins for our customers are wins for society.
Imagine waking up one morning and hitting the light switch, only to be stuck in utter darkness because there is no power and your lights don’t work. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), more than 1 billion people in the world suffer from energy poverty or lack of energy. FuelCell Energy is helping organizations and communities around the world develop a safe, secure, and practical journey to net-zero by decarbonizing power and producing hydrogen.
Our platforms help organizations transform their energy strategy while staying true to their net-zero commitments.
At FuelCell Energy, we're helping deliver a more sustainable future by decarbonizing power and producing hydrogen around the world. Our platforms can help businesses and communities with power generation, carbon capture, hydrogen production, and energy storage.
Excess power from wind and solar can be converted into hydrogen and stored for long periods, then converted back to power when needed. We believe that hydrogen is the cleanest and most cost effective solution for storing and transporting large amounts of renewable energy.
FuelCell Energy's platforms can help utilities and independent power producers transition to net zero while strengthening grid reliability. Our systems are proven to add clean distributed power while enhancing grid resiliency. The fuel cell power plant's compact design, quiet operation, and clean emissions profile make it easy to site in populated areas.
As utilities adjust to more intermittent power generation from wind and solar, innovative solutions will be required to improve the effectiveness of renewables. Our technologies, both current and in development, help solve this problem by providing clean power to compensate for undersupply and store power during oversupply using hydrogen.
Co-locate supply and demand
Our fuel cell plants can be configured as microgrids, supplying power to the grid during normal operation and islanding to provide power in the event of a disturbance. This ensures a constant power supply for critical infrastructure.
Through our Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs), customers can add a fuel cell microgrid to their facility without the upfront investment. We offer ongoing service, support, and monitoring to assure your asset will continue to run at peak performance.
A 2.2 MW fuel cell microgrid in Woodbridge, Connecticut provides power to a local high school and other nearby buildings. During power outages, the fuel cell switches to microgrid mode to provide reliable and uninterrupted power to seven critical town facilities.
The fuel cell microgrid in Woodbridge also supplies heat to the local high school. When configured for combined heat and power (CHP), the overall system efficiency increases, using fewer resources to produce more power.
How will you use recycled CO2?
Businesses are setting aggressive net-zero targets as the planet looks to reduce emissions. FuelCell Energy presents a compelling opportunity for manufacturers to make progress on their sustainability goals. Our plant's electrochemical process results in electricity, heat, and water, with the ability to recycle CO2 into a valuable product.
Once captured and concentrated by the fuel cells, the CO2 has many potential uses. CO2 can be used for beverage bottling, food processing, cooling, welding, dry ice production, metal fabrication, water treatment, fire suppression, and to aid in the production of cement and plastics.
FuelCell Energy's platforms provide the majority of power to Pepperidge Farm's state-of-the-art bakery facility in Bloomfield, Connecticut. The 260,000-square-foot manufacturing facility runs three shifts and relies on on-site power from its fuel cell system.
Heat from the fuel cell plant is used to support bakery operations, which helps reduce fuel needs for plant boilers. When used in combined heat and power applications (CHP), the overall system efficiency can be up to 80 percent, using fewer resources to produce more power.
Our platforms can provide manufacturers and research facilities with reliable on-site heat and electricity for industrial processes. When configured as a microgrid, a fuel cell plant can provide a continuous supply of power in the event of a grid outage.
Fuel cells generate electricity and heat through an electrochemical reaction, contributing to ultra-clean baseload power and providing a backup solution. FuelCell Energy offers a unique decarbonization platform with the ability to capture CO2 and simultaneously generate power — whether the fuel cell runs on natural gas or biogas.
Hospitals rely on energy to provide critical services for the people in our communities. Our platforms can help hospitals advance sustainability goals while saving on energy. Through our Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs), hospitals can upgrade facilities without the upfront investment.
FuelCell Energy's 1.4 MW plant generates savings for Hartford Hospital by producing ultra-clean electricity and heat. The small footprint, quiet operation, and clean emissions profile make fuel cell systems easy to site on a hospital's campus.
FuelCell Energy's platforms can help universities reduce power costs and advance their sustainability goals. Fuel cells emit water vapor rather than pollutants. Heat generated by the fuel cells can be used for facility heating to reduce or replace the need for combustion-based boilers.
The plant's clean emissions profile, combined with its compact design and quiet operation, make it easy to site on campus. When configured as a microgrid, the plant can provide a continuous supply of power to critical infrastructure in the event of a grid outage.
FuelCell Energy offers proven, end-to-end solutions for wastewater treatment plants. Our unique technology treats the anaerobic digester gas so that the fuel cell plant can run directly off of it. As a result, the system efficiently produces renewable energy from direct biogas.
On-site power can improve a facility's energy resiliency. Through our long-term service agreements, FuelCell Energy’s technicians can assist with installation, operation, maintenance, and 24/7 remote monitoring.
