IKEA Energy Manage

Furniture retailer IKEA has installed a fourth biogas-powered fuel cell in a California store, according to the company.

The installation was at its San Diego location. All the stores also have solar arrays. Combined, IKEA will generate 1.5 MW of energy via the cells. A fifth fuel cell is planned, the company said.

The press release said that the San Diego fuel cell is slightly larger than a commercial backup generator. It will produce about 1,665,101 kWh of electricity annually. Bloom Energy designed developed and installed the system.

MidHudsonNews.com says that that two renewable energy projects in New York totaling $360 million will be part of the state’s goal of generating half of its electricity from renewables by 2030. One of the projects, at Regeneron Pharmaceuticals in Tarrytown, will feature a 1.05 MW fuel cell from Bloom.

In November, TechNavio released a report that said fuel cells tied to combined heat and power (CH) systems will grow at a combined annual growth rate (CAGR) of 24.96 percent from last year until 2020.
