Presentation Abstract

When evaluating energy systems, fuel cells have many favorable characteristics. A few of these characteristics include: next-to-zero pollutants, reliability, fuel flexibility, dual energy production (both electricity and heat), and high efficiencies when implementing Combined Heat and Power (CHP). Because of these advantageous characteristics, a study has been initiated to evaluate the feasibility of stationary fuel cell applications for facilities at Andrews University. The objective of this study is to, first, identify successful cases of fuel cells systems with CHP that have been implemented around the world. The second objective is to verify the economic viability of the installation of fuel cell systems for co-generation in stationary applications. The cost analysis will consider government incentive programs that subsidize environmentally beneficial projects.
