FuelCell Energy Demonstrates Biogas-Powered Fuel Cell Power Plant at Dairy Farm

14 Oct 2013

FuelCell Energy 2013FuelCell Energy has announced a DOE-supported project to convert agricultural waste into renewable power utilising an SOFC power plant. The solid oxide fuel cell power plant demonstration, planned for early 2014 for operation at a dairy farm in California, will utilise renewable biogas from the anaerobic digestion process to generate electricity and heat in conjunction and will be operated in cooperation with project partner TDA Research, Inc.

Many agricultural operations generate more biogas and electrical generation potential than they can use for their daily operations, which is why the ability to interconnect to the electric grid is an important part of understanding the future market potential and ability to support sustainability of farms and agricultural industries.
