The New York Power Authority (NYPA) announced that it has reached an agreement that will make the redeveloped World Trade Center the site of one of the largest fuel cell installations in the world. The agreement, valued at US $10.6 million, was reached with UTC Power for equipment purchases to provide heat and power for the new towers.

"The fuel cells and other measures will help make the new World Trade Center towers an exemplar of environmental sustainability and will signal to the world New York State's commitment to greater energy security and reduced dependence on foreign oil." -- Governor David Paterson, New York State
