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.
FuelCell Energy installed a 5.6 MW fuel cell system to power Pfizer's 160-acre research and development facility in Groton, Connecticut. Under a Purchase Power Agreement (PPA), Pfizer agreed to purchase power and steam from FuelCell Energy for 20 years. The installation forms part of a combined heat and power (CHP) system that runs parallel with the grid and provides standby power in case of outages.
FuelCell Energy’s team is here to support you every step of the way. We’ll work to learn the details of your operation and recommend the best configuration to meet your goals. Let us know how we can help.
