TECO 2030 and an unnamed entity have signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to work together on a number of fuel cell projects that, when combined, could produce 50MW of fuel cells.
The projects are megawatt-scale representations of stationary on-shore fuel cell plants and marine fuel cell systems. The MOU establishes a three-year commitment to collaborate in order to accomplish the project’s goals.
Fuel cells are hydrogen-powered engines that produce electricity using a process that does not include combustion. In comparison to traditional, combustion-based power production systems, they so emit less pollution. Moreover, fuel cells are very effective, generating more power per unit of fuel. As a result, fuel cells provide an alternative to conventional power generation that has considerable advantages for the environment, health, and dependability.
