100% renewable power and fuel

The tri-generation system being installed at Toyota's Port of Long Beach site will use directed renewable biogas to deliver hydrogen, electricity, and water. The carbon-neutral 2.3 MW fuel cell plant will completely power the site, supply hydrogen to fuel vehicles, reduce the port's emissions, and export electricity to the Southern California grid. Our platform will generate water as a byproduct, decreasing the port's water usage in an area impacted by drought.

Emits water, not pollutants

The 1.3 tons of green hydrogen generated by the plant each day will be used to power Toyota’s zero-emission passenger vehicles and Class 8 trucks. The switch to hydrogen is expected to improve air quality in the community and lower transportation emissions. 

Positive community impacts

Our platforms generate power through electrochemical reactions, rather than combustion. Virtually no pollutants are emitted as a result, leading to healthier air quality for nearby communities. Some of our fuel cells can reduce water consumption by cooling the steam back down to liquid and recirculating it through the system. In certain applications, our fuel cells can generate more water than they consume.

clean-air-certified-carb

Expedited clean air permitting

FuelCell Energy's power plants have received key certifications under the California Air Resources Board’s (CARB) distributed generation standards. The CARB 2007 certification allows the local air quality management districts in California to exempt the fuel cell installation from the clean air permitting process, which accelerates the approval process. Outside of California, the CARB 2007 certification independently validates the clean air profile of our plants.
