FuelCell Energy Announces U.S. Department of Energy Project Award
Publish Date: 10/9/2020
Fuel Cell Energy...announces selection by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, in collaboration with the Office of Nuclear Energy, for an $8.0 million funding award to support the design and manufacture of a SureSource electrolysis platform capable of producing of hydrogen. FuelCell Energy has previously demonstrated multi-stack solid oxide power generation systems at both the 50kW and 200kW output levels. This project will be the first multi-stack electrolysis system produced with the Company’s solid oxide technology. The system will be equipped with an option to receive thermal energy, thus increasing the electrolysis electrical efficiency to over 90%.

Let’s make every day Hydrogen Day
Publish Date: 10/8/2020
Three years ago, California was the lead investor, paying for 70% of capital costs to seed the market. Today, that equation has flipped: the private sector is paying for 70%. Think about that for a moment: just three years ago, California had to pull the market. Today, industry is leveraging government funding and the Low Carbon Fuel Standard to push the market ahead. What’s more, industry partners have driven down costs while increasing scale. That means these stations are bigger, cheaper, and more robust — like the gasoline stations drivers are used to, but with none of the mess. Addressing climate change isn’t just good for the environment, it’s good for business.

Hydrogen Micro-Grids Could Solve California’s Energy Crisis
Publish Date: 9/17/2020
Stone Edge saw the benefits of green hydrogen early on. After struggling to power its operations through photovoltaic solar systems alone, owner Mac McQuown sought a more integrated solution. With the support of Omni Energy Solutions, Stone Edge installed a micro-grid that combines various clean energy technologies, including renewable electricity generation and battery and hydrogen storage, with real-time monitoring and control. The critical piece tying these components together is the a Plug Power electrolyzer, a machine that splits water molecules into oxygen and hydrogen via an electrochemical reaction. The extracted hydrogen is then stored on-site for later use by the Plug Power GenSure fuel cells that power the winery’s critical infrastructure or by its fuel cell-powered vehicles. This process enables Stone Edge Farm to run its business nearly emissions-free.
