FuelCell Energy Team Awarded $6.0 Million Contract To Continue Development Of Stationary Solid Oxide Fuel Cell Power Plants

Stocks in this article: FCEL

"We are making excellent progress towards commercial applications with leading edge solid oxide fuel cell technology for stationary applications," said Tony Leo, Vice President Application Engineering & Advanced Technology Development, FuelCell Energy, Inc. "We believe this technology can provide an industry leading electrical efficiency of approximately 60 percent and still provide usable heat for combined heat and power applications, resulting in total estimated thermal efficiency between 80 and 85 percent."

The DOE's SECA program is currently focused on development of technologies suitable for large-scale coal based applications such as Integrated Gasification Fuel Cell (IGFC) power plants. The USA has approximately one quarter of the world's recoverable coal deposits, the largest of any nation. Almost half of the power generated in the USA is from coal and this coal generated power contributes over one quarter of the nation's total greenhouse gas emissions. Fuel cells operating on coal syngas can generate clean power with virtually zero pollutants and significant reductions in greenhouse gas emissions.

Versa Power Systems, Inc. is a leading developer of environmentally friendly solid oxide fuel cells, a clean-tech source of power to generate electricity for a range of applications. Headquartered in Littleton, Colorado, the Company has built systems integral to research projects conducted by partners including Fortune 500 industrial manufacturers, government agencies and associations focused on energy research. FuelCell Energy, Inc. owns approximately 39 percent of Versa Power Systems, Inc.
