EnBW and Siemens plan first ever megawatt-class fuel-cell power plant with sights set on up to 70 percent efficiency

EnBW Energie Baden-Württemberg AG and Siemens Power Generation (PG) are joining forces to build a highly-efficient fuel cell hybrid power plant. Plans call for the construction of a megawatt-class demonstration plant. The goal of this re-search project is to convert up to 70% of the fuel energy into electricity. The necessary groundwork is scheduled to be completed by 2008. This will provide the basis for construction of an initial, small pilot plant, to be followed beginning in 2012 by the planned fuel cell hybrid plant with an installed capacity of one mega-watt.
