Ion Power Installs First Commercial Fuel Cell in Delaware.

Ion Power recently unveiled the first commercial fuel cell installation in the state of Delaware at its headquarters in New Castle.

According to the company, the five-kilowatt (kW) Plug Power GENCORE unit is integrated into the building's heating system such that all the waste heat from the fuel cell is recovered to meet heating demands. Ion Power noted that the electricity is used to power a heat pump that delivers an additional 15 kW of heat into the building under the typical winter conditions of northern Delaware.

The project is funded by a cooperative agreement with the Department of Energy and the Green Energy Fund of the State of Delaware as a Technology Demonstration Project. One of the key goals of the project is to demonstrate the cost reduction that can be achieved by recycling end-of-life fuel cell components.
