FuelCell Energy Inc. (FCE, Danbury, CT) announced that its DFC300A Direct FuelCell® (DFC) power plants have been certified to meet the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) products safety standards for stationary fuel cell systems, ANSI Z21.83, making it the largest power plant to be certified under this standard. The certification will reduce the time and cost for installation of the company's DFC power plants, and enhances the product's eligibility for incentive funding throughout the US.

ANSI Z21.83 applies to packaged, self-contained, integrated systems of fuel cell power plants up to 1MW in capacity using natural gas or liquefied propane gas as a fuel source, and specifically identifies criteria for construction and safety of applicable fuel cell power plants.
