Emissions Credits Powered by Fuel Cells

August 17, 2004 [SolarAccess.com] Emissions generated at the Energy 2004 Workshop and Exposition in New York were offset through a donation of emissions credits from the generator manufacturer FuelCell Energy of Connecticut. The company donated credits to the Cleaner and Greener program, a market-based approach to emissions reduction, run by the nonprofit Wisconsin institution Leonardo Academy. The donation covered the 1,170 MWh of power used by the workshop. Emissions associated with the conference include: pollution from direct energy use during the event, and indirect pollution related to such items as airline travel for the more than 1300 attendees. Emissions reduction credits for the workshop were created from power produced by FuelCell Energy generators, and FuelCell then donated the credits to Leonard Academy, which specializes in emissions reducing actions. The academy then transferred ownership of the credits to the 2004 Workshop.
