The world’s largest fuel cell park

FCE Korea

Updated: No, it’s not from Valley company Bloom Energy. FuelCell Energy is showing off what it says is the largest fuel cell park in the world: anĀ 11.2 MW project with Korean power producer Korean Electric Power Corporation (KEPCO) POSCO Power in Daegu City, South Korea. It was built on one acre of land, and investor The Cobalt Sky owns the plant and sells the power back to KEPCO under a long-term power purchase agreement. Korean power company POSCO Power facillitated the deal and FuelCell Energy provided the fuel cells.

Fuel cells create power and heat through a chemical reaction, and it’s uncommon for utilities in the U.S. to invest in such large centralized fuel cell plants. However, FuelCell Energy has been selling fuel cell projects to utilities in countries like Korea.
