Fuel Cells Clean Up Beer Brewing Process

May 10, 2004 [SolarAccess.com] FuelCell Energy, and Alliance Power entered into an arrangement by which Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. is expected to purchase four 250-kilowatt Direct FuelCell (DFC) power plants in late 2005 or early 2006. A joint venture of FuelCell Energy and Alliance Power will supply electric power and heat to the brewery’s production processes until the fuel cells are delivered. FuelCell Energy and its U.S. distribution partner, PPL Energy Plus, have also completed the installation of a DFC power plant for Ocean County Community College (OCC) in New Jersey. The fuel cell will provide about 90 percent of the daily power requirements for OCC’s Instructional Building, Lecture Hall and Nursing Arts Building and 20 percent of heating needs will be provided to those three buildings plus the Administration Building, Library, and the Robert J. Novins Planetarium.
