MoU to market tri-generation, stationary fuel-cell power plants  

By Gerald Ondrey |

Air Products (Lehigh Valley, Pa.; www.airproducts.com) and FuelCell Energy, Inc. (Danbury, Conn.; www.fuelcellenergy.com) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to work toward the market development of stationary Direct FuelCell (DFC) power plants that simultaneously produce hydrogen, ultra-clean electricity and usable high quality heat. Target markets for these tri-generation stationary fuel cell power plants include industrial hydrogen users as well as vehicle fueling applications. “On-site or distributed co-production of hydrogen in a cost effective and efficient manner from stationary fuel cell power plants represents tremendous market potential,” says Ed Kiczek, global director – Hydrogen Energy Systems at Air Products. “Hydrogen is an alternative fuel that can simultaneously reduce a country’s dependence on imported oil and significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions.” The initiative seeks to develop a market for tri-generation megawatt-class power plants around the world. Industrial users of hydrogen can utilize all three of the DFC revenue streams including hydrogen, electricity and heat. On-site or local production of hydrogen and electricity eliminates the delivery costs incurred…
