Fuel Cells 2000 Unveils Worldwide Installations Database

November 15, 2005 by Jeff Shepard

Fuel Cells 2000 (Washington, DC) unveiled a new searchable database of worldwide stationary fuel cell installations, which catalogues all installations around the globe - past, present, and planned. The new database is available on the company's website and is free. The new MySQL database allows users to search by a variety of fields to find exactly what they are looking for. There are basic search fields as well as an advanced search feature that allows multiple sorting by manufacturer, city, state, country, fuel cell type, power range, fuel, demonstration program, and by specific text. Users can find all the proton-exchange membrane fuel cells in their state or country, look up all natural gas-fueled units, search for units under or over a certain power range - the options are endless.

"Fuel Cells 2000 has compiled all the information available and created a simple, yet comprehensive database of stationary fuel cell installations," said Fuel Cells 2000 Program Director Jennifer Gangi. "We hope users will be impressed with not only how many installations there are worldwide, but at just how long some countries have been actively working on demonstrating the technology."

The database contains numerous listings from various fuel cell demonstration programs conducted by the US Department of Defense, the European Union, and Japan from the 1990s, as well as more recent installations and planned sitings coming up in the next few years.
