FuelCell Energy Earns Top Product of the Year Award for its Trigeneration Platform from Environment + Energy Leader
FuelCell Energy, Inc.
- a global leader in
manufacturing stationary fuel cell energy platforms for
decarbonizing power and producing hydrogen to enable a world
empowered by clean energy - today announced that the FuelCell
Energy Trigeneration Platform received a Top Product of the Year
Award in the elite Environment + Energy Leader Awards program. The
announcement was made today at the Environment + Energy Leader
Solutions Summit 2022.
The win is an indication that the program’s expert judges
consider the FuelCell Energy Trigeneration Platform a top example
of the exemplary work being done today in the fields of energy and
The FuelCell Energy Trigeneration platform, with renewable gas
supply, will enable an onsite, industrial scale, zero-carbon
solution for the Toyota Logistics Services facility in the Port of
Long Beach, California. The co-location of the hydrogen generation
and hydrogen fueling at the facility is the first of its kind and
the only platform in the world that will produce electricity,
hydrogen, and water from a single platform.
The FuelCell Energy Trigeneration platform will leverage
renewable natural gas at a commercial level to generate green
hydrogen, zero carbon electricity and provide produced water
delivering the trifecta of sustainable solutions. The platform will
provide the green hydrogen needed to create a zero-emissions
hydrogen truck and car fueling depot, along with a zero-carbon
footprint Toyota facility and a net producer of water in support of
its operations. The additional benefit of the project is that the
platform will generate water that will be used for Toyota’s car
washing operations, furthering its environmental stewardship in an
The FuelCell Energy platform will also help the Port of Long
Beach lower its overall emissions, improving the overall air
quality in a region struggling with poor air quality.
FuelCell Energy Director of Technology and Product, Paul
Fukumoto, and Toyota North America, Sustainability Manager, Mark
Yamauchi will be present to discuss the project at a Q & A
session during the Solutions Summit on July 21, from 10:15 to 11:00
“We’re honored to be recognized for this project,” said Tony
Leo, CTO for FuelCell Energy. “The Trigeneration project will help
Toyota drive to their announced zero emission goals and provide the
hydrogen needed to power zero emissions fuel cell electric vehicle
transportation for passenger cars and class 8 heavy duty trucks.
Leveraging our distributed hydrogen Trigeneration platform will
serve as a model for delivering hydrogen at the point of
consumption thus leapfrogging midstream infrastructure challenges.
Zero carbon power and zero carbon hydrogen are key energy supplies
for Toyota, which combined with the production of water in a
drought region are key elements of meeting their sustainability and
One judge said, "Ultimately, we need more hydrogen-based
solutions to drive de-carbonization in our industry. Any projects
like this that start pushing the envelope to use hydrogen will
allow our industry to learn and grow."
Another added: "This Tri-Gen project is expected to generate
2.3MW of electricity and 1.3 tons of hydrogen per day to support
Toyota Logistics Services operations at the port. The uniqueness of
this project is that the plant will be powered by renewable
directed biogas (biogas which is purified to pipeline quality and
delivered to the plant through the natural gas pipeline)."
The Environment + Energy Leader Awards is a program recognizing
excellence in products and services that provide companies with
energy and environmental benefits, and in projects implemented by
companies that improved environmental or energy management and
increased the bottom line.
“With a very experienced and critical judging panel and a strict
set of judging criteria, entrants faced an extremely high bar to
qualify for an award in 2022,” says Sarah Roberts, Environment
Energy Leader publisher.
