Fuel cells as a source of clean and reliable energy are not new. What is, though, is the bold direction FuelCell Energy and ExxonMobil are taking to upgrade this well-tested energy innovation.
Working together, we are tapping the power of fuel cells to concentrate and capture CO2 emissions generated by natural gas-fired power plants. The problem with current carbon capture technology is that it’s energy-intensive. Fuel cells would capture carbon emissions and generate power at the same time, making the whole process much more efficient.
