Empowering efficient healthcare

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.

Healthier air for communities

The fuel cell plant's combustion-free process emits water, not pollutants, supporting healthier air quality for the hospital's surrounding community. By comparison, internal combustion-based power generation creates harmful emissions such as nitrogen oxide (NOx), sulfur dioxide (SOx) and particulate matter (PM).

NOx and SOx emissions are regulated in many regions to minimize their adverse health effects and the creation of smog. PM emissions are a public health concern as the particulates can lodge deep in human lung tissue, accumulating over time.
