NREL Spearheads Developing the Fuel Cell Power Model
December 16, 2009
NREL's Hydrogen Technologies and Systems Center spearheaded developing the Fuel Cell Power (FCPower) Model for the U.S. Department of Energy's Fuel Cell Technologies Program.
The FCPower Model is a financial tool for analyzing high-temperature, fuel cell-based tri-generation (combined heat, hydrogen, and power) systems, which can play an important role in early fuel cell markets. Case study data for the FCPower Model include building energy load profiles and solar/wind resource profiles for U.S. cities in eight climate zones.
