Fuel Cells 2000 Unveils Searchable Database of Worldwide Stationary Installations

WASHINGTON--Nov. 12,2005--The world is at your fingertips. The world of stationary fuel cell installations, that is. Fuel Cells 2000 has developed the first-of-its-kind searchable database of worldwide stationary fuel cell installations. The database catalogues all installations around the globe - past, present and planned. And like every resource available on www.fuelcells.org, it is absolutely free.

The easy-to-use 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 PEM 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," says Jennifer Gangi, program director, Fuel Cells 2000. "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 U.S. Department of Defense, European Union and Japan from the 1990s as well as more recent installations and planned sitings coming up in the next few years.

The database can be found at Fuel Cells 2000 - HERE. Fuel Cells 2000 welcomes any additions or corrections, including technical data and photographs, particularly with older or recently installed units. Please email information to database@fuelcells.org.

Fuel cells generate electricity without combustion by harnessing the energy created when hydrogen and oxygen are chemically combined. Fuel Cells 2000 is an independent, nonprofit activity dedicated to the commercialization of fuel cell technologies.
