These generators can switch from running on fossil fuels to clean fuels
Author: Jeff St. John
Generator providers such as Aggreko, Cummins, Generac and Wartsila have been expanding their business, as have microgrid developers like Enchanted Rock and Scale Microgrid Solutions and fuel-cell manufacturers including Bloom Energy and Fuel cell Energy. But today’s diesel and fossil-gas-fueled generators emit a range of pollutants that could violate local air-quality mandates and undermine state clean energy goals. Even fuel cells, which convert fuels to electricity without combustion, still emit carbon dioxide when they run on fossil gas rather than hydrogen. The administration’s energy and environmental policies have intersected to create the perfect storm for America’s position as a world leader in energy and potentially everywhere else.
