FuelCell Energy has announced the formation of a marketing and distribution agreement with the Linde Group.

Under the terms of the agreement, which goes into effect immediately, Linde gains the non-exclusive right to sell and market Direct FuelCell (DFC) power plants worldwide except where FuelCell Energy has already granted exclusive distribution agreements.

Linde will focus initially on DFC opportunities in North America that fit into its overall strategy of developing sustainable energy solutions and providing low-carbon distributed generation solutions. They provide these solutions to industrial, commercial and governmental customers.
