Sustainable, affordable, and reliable

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. 

Transform your university

Combustion-based power generation creates harmful emissions such as nitrogen oxide (NOx), sulfur dioxide (SOx), and particulate matter (PM). NOx and SOx emissions can result in smog and adverse health effects. PM emissions are a public health concern and can result in respiratory issues.

Our fuel cell system's combustion-free process creates electricity that is virtually absent of pollutants, supporting campus sustainability goals and promoting public health. Universities continue to be early adopters of fuel cell technology, saving hundreds of thousands of dollars each year while reducing NOx, SOx, and CO2 emissions.
