Bloombox: gas fuel cell

Well there is not much detail but it looks interesting. It would be necessary to be able to compare the performances with the traditional die:

gas -> heat -> steam -> turbine -> electricity.

The news is not uninteresting in itself, especially since it evokes the possibility of using a biogas.

Even if you use natural gas, it consumes oil : Evil: if the only rejection is water, it's better :D

Wait and see!

Awesome Kistinie.

Now are there any who know the performance of gas plants and who can make a rough comparison?

Ok there is info in fact:

DFC power plants are 47% efficient in the generation of electrical power and up to 80% efficient overall in Combined Heat and Power (CHP) applications when the byproduct heat is used. Typical fossil fuel-powered plants operate at about 35% electrical power generation efficiency.


Performance of 47% vs 35% is not bad but not yet revolutionary. Must see also the gray energy now.
