Fuel Cells Chosen by Fujitsu


Fuel Cells Better Alternative Energy?

Fujitsu wanted to go with alternative energy at their industrial site in Sunnyvale, California. They didn't go with solar or wind power like many other companies have, instead they chose to go with fuel cells.

They have installed a stationary fuel cell system, which they say, is more reliable than solar or wind energy, and needs a lot less space.

Fuel Cell Energy is a company that produce industrial size fuel cell installations. One of their 300Kilowatt installations only requires 37 feet by 29 feet of space. The cell can be run on anaerobic digester gas or natural gas.

I wonder how the costs compare with solar and wind?
