FuelCell Energy technology to be used in Sacramento wastewater clean energy project

news item image
FuelCell Energy's carbonate fuel cell technology will be used in a biogeneration project developed by Ameresco for the Sacramento Area Sewer District (Sacramento Sewer) to convert on-site biofuel into clean electricity.
One of the company’s 2.8-Megawatt carbonate fuel cell platforms, which produces power and useful heat from biogas and has the potential for future production of renewable green hydrogen, will be deployed on the project.
The company also said that it has entered an agreement to provide comprehensive maintenance services for the fuel cell system, which will ensure that Sacramento Sewer can focus on its mission of protecting public health and the environment while delivering renewable power from the cleanest technology available.
Jason Few, FuelCell Energy’s CEO & president, commented, “FuelCell Energy’s patented power platforms are unique in their ability to run on on-site biogas without combustion, and they help community facilities like SacSewer produce efficient, clean and continuous electricity with reduced operating expenses. Plus, the community benefits from reduced greenhouse gas emissions and less pollutants.”
He added, “FuelCell Energy’s technology is also helping local governments meet their sustainability goals by minimising or avoiding the use of combustion-based boilers for heat, while boosting their resiliency and limiting their dependence on the local grid.”
FuelCell Energy has been doing business in California since 2005 and has partnered with several government entities seeking to provide clean energy to their communities through innovative platforms. This includes three other installations that have been successfully running on biogas in Riverside, San Bernardino, and Tulare.
