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. The stationary fuel cell power plants manufactured by FuelCell Energy are fuel flexible, capable of operating on clean natural gas, on-site renewable biogas, or directed biogas. The power plants provide continuous 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 facilitates locating the fuel cell power plants in urban locations and even within occupied buildings.
