Toyota enters 20-year purchase agreement for “Tri-gen” biogas system
The Tri-gen system, owned and operated by FuelCell Energy, produces renewable electricity, renewable hydrogen and water from directed biogas.
FuelCell Energy has contracted with Toyota to supply the products of Tri-gen under a 20-year purchase agreement.
Tri-gen is an example of FuelCell Energy’s ability to scale hydrogen-powered fuel cell technology, an increasingly important energy solution in the global effort to reduce carbon emissions, according to the company.
Tri-gen will enable Toyota Logistic Services (TLS) Long Beach to be the company’s first port vehicle processing facility in the world powered by onsite-generated, 100% renewable energy.
“By utilising only renewable hydrogen and electricity production, TLS Long Beach will blaze a trail for our company,” said Chris Reynolds, chief administrative officer, Toyota.
“Working with FuelCell Energy, together we now have a world-class facility that will help Toyota achieve its carbon reduction efforts, and the great news is this real-world example can be duplicated in many parts of the globe.”
FuelCell Energy CEO Jason Few said: “FuelCell Energy is committed to helping our customers surpass their clean energy objectives. By working with FuelCell Energy, Toyota is making a powerful statement that hydrogen-based energy is good for business, local communities and the environment.
"We are extremely pleased to showcase the versatility and sophistication of our fuel cell technology and to play a role in supporting Toyota’s environmental commitments.”
