Fuel cell plant to power Eastern Connecticut State University

A US university has partnered up with clean energy companies to install a combined heat and power fuel cell system.

UTC Power and the Clean Energy Finance and Investment Authority (CEFIA) have teamed up with Eastern Connecticut State University on a project to increase energy efficiency at the University.

Eastern Connecticut State UniversityUnder a ten-year Energy Services Agreement (ESA), UTC Power has supplied and installed a PureCellà‚® combined heat and power fuel cell system at Eastern’s Science Building, made possible by a federal American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) grant through CEFIA.

The PureCell system, a stationary phosphoric acid fuel cell (PAFC), produces 400 kW of continuous electric power while generating usable by-product heat, reports Fuel Cell Today.

Supplemental heat generated by the operation of the fuel cell will be used by Eastern’s infrastructure.
