Plug Powers European Grid

May 1, 2003 [] Plug Power Inc. and partner Vaillant GmbH have installed 13 proton exchange membrane fuel cell heating appliances during the past three months in multi-family homes and small businesses in Germany, the Netherlands, Austria and Luxemburg. These systems are supporting both Vaillant customers and the Commission of the European Union’s Virtual Power Plant Program with fuel cell heating appliances that produce up to 9 kW of heat and 4.6 kW of electricity to multi-family homes and small businesses. Similar in concept to the Long Island Power Authority’s West Babylon Fuel Cell Demonstration Site, the Virtual Power Plant Program envisions a networked collection of fuel cells connected to the electric grid that can be monitored and controlled from a central control facility and operated according to the demands of the electric grid system.
