California brewer buys fuel cell power plants

The power plants provide a significant percentage of the brewery’s daily electricity requirements. By purchasing the units, the company will have greater control over its energy costs while honoring its commitment to environmental sustainability by operating a green facility. The power plants had already been modified to allow the host company to use fuel created from the waste by-product of its brewing process, thus reducing the company’s fuel costs by 25%”40%.

Italy’s Enel has launched a major new investment plan, involving renewables, energy efficiency and distributed generation that puts the company ‘at the forefront in the search for innovative solutions to reducing the environmental impact of power generation and distribution.’
