ClearEdge Power lands world’s largest utility fuel cell deal

Fuel cell maker ClearEdge Power has scored the mother of all utility deals: a 50 MW, $500 million deal with Austrian utility Güssing Renewable Energy. ClearEdge Power VP of Marketing Mike Upp tells me in an interview that Güssing will run the entire distributed network of fuel cells off of biogas, produced from the area’s forest and agricultural bi-products.

To put this in perspective utilities don’t commonly contract for massive amounts of distributed fuel cells. Some of the other sizable ones I’ve heard of are that Bloom Energy is working with Delaware utility Delmarva Power & Light for a 30 MW system, and FuelCell Energy has what it says is the largest constructed fuel cell park in the world with a 11.2 MW project with Korean power producer Korean Electric Power Corporation (KEPCO).
