FuelCell Energy Applauds Congressman Larson And Senator Blumenthal's Plan To Promote Efficiency And Job Creation With Fuel Cells

Generating both clean electricity and usable heat from the same unit of fuel enhances efficiency and reduces emissions. Direct FuelCell® (DFC®) power plants designed and manufactured by FuelCell Energy, Inc. can achieve efficiency up to 90 percent in CHP applications.

"We value the support of far-sighted legislators such as Congressman Larson and Senator Blumenthal to help attract private capital to fund stationary power plant installations and drive sustainable manufacturing sector job growth," said Chip Bottone, President and Chief Executive Officer, FuelCell Energy, Inc. "Our power plants help to address the power generation changes facing the Nation as our plants provide continuous power at the point of use in a highly efficient process that emits virtually no pollutants." 

In addition to supporting the installation of highly efficient and environmentally friendly stationary fuel cell power plants, the Act increases the tax credit for hydrogen refueling properties from 30 percent to 50 percent and expands eligibility to include hydrogen refueling properties for fuel cell powered material handling equipment. 

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. DFC plants provide continuous baseload power and can be sited where the power is used, including both on-site applications and electric grid support. The combination of near-zero pollutants, modest land-use needs, and quiet operating nature of DFC plants facilitates their siting in urban locations.
