Boeing Delivers Reversible Fuel Cell-based Energy Storage System to U.S. Navy

Cyber secure system stores energy as compressed hydrogen, generates clean power
Press Release

March 11, 2016 /3BL Media/ - After 16 months of development, Boeing [NYSE: BA] has delivered a fuel cell energy storage system to the U.S. Navy for testing. The cell is being tested to determine its ability to support the energy needs of military and commercial customers.

The system is the first of its kind using a technology called a “reversible solid oxide fuel cell” to store energy from renewable resources (including wind and solar), producing clean, zero-emissions electricity.

Solar vs. “The Grid”

How can we know where—and by how much—power from solar photovoltaics (PV) is better than grid electricity? What does this mean for solar subsidies?

One Method for Any Energy Source

Our approach to assessing source energy efficiency is the same for both solar power and grid electricity. And while our analysis is based on large datasets, the results are actually pretty easy to understand.
