Inside the world's largest fuel cell plant

Inside the world's largest fuel cell plant in South Korea

Fuel cells are often mentioned in the context of hydrogen-powered cars, but they can also be used to power homes. We visited the world's largest fuel cell power plant in South Korea's Hwaseong city, to find out why fuel cells could be the next best source of renewable energy.



Just an hour's drive south of Seoul lies Gyunggi Green Energy, the world's largest fuel cell power plant, producing 440 million kilowatt-hours of electricity per year.



Each 2.8 MW fuel cell takes up the space of one basketball court. And 21 of them produce enough electricity to power 135,000 households in Hwaseong city. Fuel cells produce electricity through the reaction of hydrogen and oxygen.

Nothing gets burned, which means only steam comes out of the chimneys, making the plant ideal for locations closer to densely populated cities. And unlike other renewable energy sources, they can run 24/7, 365 days a year, unaffected by the weather.

POSCO Energy...will become the first South Korean company to fully localize the manufacturing process of fuel-cells, a project that is worth 86.3 million US dollars...snip
