In the News: How Are Stationary Fuel Cells Being Used?

October 21st, 2010

Fuel cells are being used to power buses, boats, trains, planes, and forklifts to name a few applications, and most (if not all) automakers are working to commercialize cars. Additionally, there are fuel cell-powered vending machines and vacuum cleaners, and cell phones and laptops are poised to hit the market.As far as stationary fuel cell systems are concerned, the three most popular applications are to power generation systems in hospitals, office buildings, hotels, schools, and utility districts; use with computers and telecommunications to identify more reliable power than currently on the grid; and landfills/wastewater treatment plants to reduce emissions and generate power from the methane gas they produce.A recent highlight for stationary fuel cell use includes Adobe’s installation to power their San Jose, California headquarters and New Haven Connecticut’s installation in City Hall.
