San Marcos University commits to Doosan fuel cell

0

California State University San Marcos has finalised an agreement that will provide the 304-acre campus with two fuel cells to help the institution adhere to strict sustainability standards and reduce greenhouse gas emissions associated with energy consumption.

The project, developed by BioFuels Energy LLC, will utilise power plants provided by Doosan Fuel Cell (Doosan), which will shrink reliance on the San Diego power grid and, unlike grid power, will consume no water during energy production – a key performance advantage in droughtstricken California.

“As an institution for higher learning, we believe it is our responsibility to continually look for the most efficient and innovative ways we can operate our campus,” says Lindsey Rowell, director of energy management and utility services for CSUSM, which serves more than 14,000 students.
