Like a lot of industrial sectors, American utilities are in the midst of re-thinking of their business model. Building centralized generation and then selling as many electrons as possible is now getting challenged by those who produce their own power, which enables them to ?disconnect? from the grid.

The inherent conflicts are now surfacing because the utilities are still responsible for maintaining the wires and for supplying electricity when customers need it. As such, those entities using ?distributed generation? that is based close to where the power is consumed are trying to work out a cost sharing arrangement with utilities. For example, rooftop solar panels may provide more than enough electricity for homeowners, who may then sell their excess back to the utility. Or, the sun may quit shining and homeowners would have to buy utility-produced power.
Enter another way of looking at things: Chip Bottone, chief executive of FuelCell Energy in Danbury, Conn, explained to this reporter that utilities should embrace on site generation as the wave of the future. He points to Germany?s E.ON , which has created a separate distributed generation unit. How would that work?
In the case of FuelCell Energy, it segments the electricity load and then distributes that energy to where it is needed. Its fuel cells, which are a form of distributed generation, have an electrical efficiency rate around 47 percent, which is the amount of energy produced per unit of input. That rises to 80 percent if the heat is captured and re-used in some other capacity.
Consider: FuelCell Energy sold a 14.9 megawatt fuel cell to Dominion Resources last December. Connecticut Light & Power, whose parent is Northeast Utilities , is buying the electricity under a 15-year energy purchase agreement. It?s all part of Connecticut?s renewable power generation goals. The fuel cell power plants will convert hydrogen from natural gas. Because the fuel is not combusted, it releases almost no harmful emissions during the process.
?Electricity efficiency is what drives the economics,? says Bottone. ?And the ability to add heat creates additional value. Utilities need distributed generation and they must have a discussion as to how best to plan for it. They can?t be the victim. If there is a significant amount of wind and solar energy coming onto the grid that creates intermittency concerns, utilities must deal with this variability and ensure reliability. Fuel cells can solve these balancing and operational issues because they relieve power companies from having to put power on the grid.?
Right now, federal and state incentives are encouraging the escalated use of green energy. At the federal level, developers of fuel cells receive a credit of $3,000 per kilowatt generated or 30 percent of the capital cost, whichever is less. It is scheduled to expire at the end of 2016. Meantime, more than half of the states have some variation of renewable portfolio standards.
Some critical issues must be resolved: If the incentives and cost reductions cause more people to go off the grid, then the price of maintaining the distribution network falls on fewer people. Likewise, the utilities and the customers using on site generation must determine how they will allocate costs and configure prices. The states are devising so-called ?net-metering? laws to work this out.
Distributed generation may reduce the need for an expanded distribution system. Minimizing those outlays would more than compensate utilities for lost electricity sales, say proponents of the technology.
However, the Edison Electric Institute says that even if customers generate their own juice and sell any excess electricity to the utility, power companies must maintain the network that makes those transactions possible ? a $25 billion annual outlay. Meantime, if intermittency issues prevent self-sufficiency, then utilities are still required to provide the back-up power, all of which cost money.
The institute penned an analysis that says a rapid escalation of transformative technologies could ?threaten the centralized utility model.? Fewer connected customers lead to higher costs for the vast majority who will fully utilize utility services as well as less revenues and greater borrowing costs, which enable both the expansion and improvement of the infrastructure.
?The threat to the centralized utility service model is likely to come from the new technologies or customer behavioral changes that reduce load,? says the institute?s study. ?Any recovery paradigms that force cost of service to be spread over fewer units of sales ? enhance the ongoing competitive threat of disruptive alternatives ? Customers are not precluded from leaving the system entirely if a more cost competitive alternative is available.?
On site power generation will gradually gain marketshare, necessitating that the current utility model make adaptations. Financial considerations are one issue. Operational matters are another. In the final analysis, though, reliability standards must keep pace with green energy advances, meaning that the two business structures must be reconciled.

Studie: Markt für Brennstoffzellen wird schnell wachsen
Dublin ? Bislang stehen Brennstoffzellen noch ganz am Anfang der kommerziellen Verbreitung. Das aber soll sich in den kommenden Jahren schnell ändern: Die Auslieferung werden nach einer Studie bis 2018 um den Faktor 14 auf rund 1,1 Millionen steigen. Derzeit sind es rund 78.000.
Wie aus der Erhebung des irischen Marktforschungs-Instituts Research and Markets hervorgeht, wird der weltweite Umsatz dann auf 2,5 Mrd. US-Dollar gestiegen sein. Der Großteil des Wachstums werde in Asien stattfinden, gefolgt von Nordamerika und Europa. Mit Ballard (Kanafa), Ceramic Fuel Cell (Australien), FuelCell Energy (USA), Hydrogenics PlugPower (U.S.) und SFC Energy (Deutschland) teilen sechs Unternehmen 58 Prozent des Marktes unter sich auf.
Brennstoffzelle mit starkem Wachstum in Europa
Die US-amerikanischen Marktforscher von Markets and Markets wiederum rechnen damit, dass das Marktvolumen nur in Europa von aktuell 150,4 Mio. auf 613,7 Mio. Dollar in 2018 steigen wird. Dies entspräche einer jährlichen Wachstumsrate von 32,5 Prozent. In Europa wird die Nachfrage demnach vor allem bei der unterbrechungsfreien Stromversorgung entstehen, also in Haushalten oder in Telekommunikation und IT.
Brennstoffzellen wandeln chemische in elektrische Energie um - ähnlich wie bei einer Batterie. Der Unterschied ist, dass der Brennstoffzelle Kraftstoff von außen zugeführt wird, diesen aber ohne Verbrennung in Strom wandelt. Hierfür kommt eine Vielzahl von Brennstoffen wie Wasserstoff, Methanol, Biogas, Erdgas oder Kohlenwasserstoffe zum Einsatz.

Bäcker33 : NRG plans to add fuel cells, solar to Montville po
By JAMES MOSHER
Posted Aug 05, 2013 @ 10:09 PM
Danbury-based FuelCell Energy Inc., which is building the world?s largest fuel cell generation plant in Bridgeport, has joined the Montville project, NRG announced Monday. Ben Toby, who oversees FuelCell Energy?s Eastern U.S. sales, touted his company?s facilities as ?safe, quiet and clean,? and at least 65 percent more efficient than most power plants.
?Dedicated people can make a difference in the future,? Toby said.
NRG Energy Inc. on Monday announced plans to add fuel cell and solar elements to a biomass conversion at its Montville power station on the same day it filed to get a long-term contract with the state government.
At a news conference at the Lathrop Road station, Montville Mayor Ron McDaniel expressed support and gratitude for NRG?s plans. McDaniel is chairman of Renew Montville, a group formed last year to support the conversion of Montville Unit 5 to a wood-burning biomass generator.
?This has risen to a new level,? the mayor said. ?This is really about jobs.?
The ?renewable energy park? project, which now includes 5.6 megawatts of natural gas-fired fuel cell generation and 2.3 megawatts from a planned solar panel ?farm,? will create 300 construction jobs and 200 long-term jobs, including those servicing fuel cells, working in the biomass facility, and in logging and transportation, said Jon Baylor, manager of the NRG Montville project.
New Jersey-based NRG?s investment of at least $100 million, of which at least half will be financed through loans, will be a ?showcase for renewable energy,? Baylor said. NRG?s bid will be attractive to state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection administrators weighing which firms should be awarded contracts for 175 megawatts in the Class 1 generation category, he said.

Bäcker33 : Bridgeport Beachhead - Strategic use of fuel cells
The U.S. Department of Energy released a report recently that stated that the nation's entire energy system - the grid and all of its associated parts - is vulnerable to severe and costly weather events and that energy disruptions such as those caused by Hurricane Sandy are just the beginning.
"What we've learned from Hurricane Sandy and other disasters is that we've got to build smarter, more resilient infrastructure that can protect our homes and businesses, and withstand more powerful storms," President Barack Obama said recently."
So how do Dominion and other energy companies find ways to improve the resiliency of the nation's grid? What do we need to build today to prepare for an ever-changing future, to keep the lights on and get them back on faster after a natural disaster?
One of many possible answers is being built today on what was an empty lot in downtown Bridgeport, Conn. It is our newest "smart grid green" power station that holds a promise of 24/7 reliable energy, but doesn't depend on fuel combustion or those other familiar but intermittent green power sources such as sun or wind.
The new entry is the Dominion Bridgeport Fuel Cell Power Station, which will be in operation by year's end. Its progress is easily visible to the millions of people who drive along Interstate 95 and travel Amtrak's Northeast Corridor between New York City and Boston. We believe that this facility and others like it can be a key to utilities locating "clean" distributed generation in constrained areas and improving grid resiliency.
Dominion announced in late 2012 that it had acquired the project from FuelCell Energy of Danbury, Conn., Which is providing the fuel cells and services. The facility will produce enough to power approximately 15,000 homes using an electrochemical process that converts natural gas into electricity without combustion. Dominion will sell the output to Connecticut Light & Power under a 15-year fixed power purchase agreement. The facility is part of Project 150, a program sponsored by Connecticut and supported by the Clean Energy Finance and Investment Authority to increase renewable and clean energy projects in Connecticut by 150 megawatts.
The power station will have five proprietary stationary fuel cell systems and an organic Rankine turbine that will use waste heat to generate almost 15 megawatts of electricity.
In essence, fuel cells are electrochemical devices that combine fuel - in this case, natural gas - with oxygen from the ambient air to produce electricity and heat, as well as water. The non-combustion process is a direct form of fuel-to energy conversion, and is more efficient than conventional heat engine approaches. Carbon dioxide is reduced because of the fuel cell's high efficiency, and the absence of combustion significantly reduces the production of nitrogen oxides and particulate pollutants.
Fuel cells incorporate an anode and a cathode, with an electrolyte in between, similar to a battery. The material used for the electrolyte and the design of the supporting structure determine the type and performance of the fuel cell. The process uses molten carbonate and porous nickel catalysts as the anode and cathode. At the end of the process, electrons flow through the external circuit, producing the desired electricity in direct current. An inverter changes the DC output to AC for use on the grid.
Distributed generation such as the Bridgeport project has several advantages. Commercial businesses, universities and military bases can become energy self-reliant. It reduces grid congestion and power transmission issues associated with centralized generation. It makes the grid better able to respond to severe weather events and does so with a process that is clean and efficient and available at all times. It is one of the possible keys to recovering from the next disruptive weather challenge that utilities will face. Less
