FuelCell Energy Inc. - A company developing efficient fuel cells - An objective of DOE's Vision 21 Program is to develop larger, multi-megawatt power plants that would generate electricity with net efficiencies approaching 75 percent (with natural gas), while producing sulfur and nitrogen oxide emissions of less than 0.01 lb/million BTU. These goals are significant improvements over conventional power plants, which are only 35-60 percent efficient and produce emissions of 0.07 to 0.3 lb/million BTU of sulfur and nitrogen oxides (see Recent News Article 10/31/02).
