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.
