Direct FuelCell® (DFC®) power plants provide continuous power at the point of use, easing congestion of the transmission grid and enhancing power reliability. DFC power plants are scalable, supporting incremental additions of power generation throughout an electric utility service network. Two fuel cell parks, each in excess of 10 MW, are operating in South Korea, providing ultra-clean power for the South Korean electric grid.Fuel cells electrochemically convert a fuel source into electricity and heat in a highly efficient process that emits virtually no pollutants due to the absence of combustion. DFC power plants are fuel flexible, capable of operating on natural gas or renewable biogas. Efficiency of up to 90 percent can be achieved when the DFC plant is configured for combined heat and power (CHP) and the heat used by the customer. High efficiency reduces fuel costs and carbon emissions and producing both electricity and heat from the same unit of fuel can reduce the use of combustion based boilers used for heating, further reducing costs and pollutants.
