Fuel Cells for Residential, Commercial and Military Power

  1. 1. Fuel Cells for Residential, Commercial and Military PowerReport Details:Published:November 2012No. of Pages: 273Price: Single User License – US$4850This report on Fuel Cells Market for Residential, Commercial and Military Power will provide:•An overview of the market for medium-size fuel cells for combined heat and power, auxiliary power, and emergency power•Analyses of market trends, with data from 2011 and 2012, and projections of compound annual growth rates (CAGRs) through 2017•A breakdown of the types of fuel cells, including solid oxide fuel cells (SOFC) and polymer electrolyte membrane fuel cells (PEMFC)•Examinations of industry structure and competitive aspects•Market segmentation by residential; commercial; transportation; police, fire, and rescue; and military•Discussion of industry concentration factors, environment and trade practices, distribution channels, and purchasing influences•Comprehensive company profiles of major playersLike batteries, fuel cells produce electrical energy through an electrochemical process. Unlikebatteries, fuel cells are “conversion” devices that change some kind of chemical fuel intoelectricity. Like combustion engines, fuel cells “convert” fuel into energy, but in this case theenergy is electricity, not kinetic (movement) or heat.Fuel cells can’t directly store electrical energy, but they may have a great deal of flexibility in fuels.Possible fuels include hydrocarbons like natural gas or alcohol, or even metals like aluminum.Many designs operate best on hydrogen gas; others can operate on utility-grade natural gas orpropane.Fuel cell sizes range from tiny portable units that can be held in the hand to massive stacks thesize of a two-story building. Smaller fuel cells can be combined into stacks with an effectivelyunlimited size.This report considers residential, commercial and military medium-sized power generationapplications for fuel cells too large to be easily portable and smaller utility-scale units. Fuel cellsused to power vehicles or small portable products are not considered. The market is divided intothree main categories:
  2. 2. • Combined Heating and Power (CHP).• Auxiliary Power Units (APU).• Emergency.Fuel cell types most appropriate for these applications include Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM)and Solid Oxide Fuel Cells (SOFCs), but other types, like molten carbonate, alkaline andphosphoric acid fuel cells, can be used in some specific medium-sized applications.CHP fuel cells integrate the production of usable heat and power (electricity) in one single, highlyefficient process. CHP generates electricity whilst also capturing usable heat that is produced inthis process. This contrasts with conventional ways of generating electricity whereby a vastamount of heat is simply wasted. In today’s coal- and gas-fired power stations, up to two-thirds ofthe overall energy consumed is lost in this way—often seen as a cloud of steam rising fromcooling towers. Their relative sophistication means that the overall efficiency of CHP plants canreach in excess of 80% at the point of use.Auxiliary power units (APUs) and emergency power fuel cells only generate electricity (not heat).The distinction between an APU and an emergency power unit depends on the service profile:continuous versus standby/intermittent. Advantages include long service life, ability to operateusing a variety of fuels and relatively low cost for the functionality. Specific applications includeemergency or backup power for residences or commercial facilities, telecommunications backuppower supplies, signage power, recreational vehicle power, aircraft auxiliary power, and anti-idlingpower for commercial diesel vehicles. Power generators provide off-grid power during a blackout,in emergencies, in remote locations or when vehicles are parked.REASONS FOR DOING THE STUDYThis report can also provide valuable information in terms of assessing investment in particulartechnologies and, therefore, should benefit investors directly or indirectly. Others may find thebroad discussions of energy policy and environmental impact to be of considerable value inunderstanding the opportunities and problems in the near- to mid-term.INTENDED AUDIENCEThis report is intended to provide a unique analysis of the residential, commercial, and military fuelcell market and will be of interest to a variety of current and potential fuel cell users and integratorsas well as competing battery, fuel cell and conventional power generation makers.BCC Research wishes to thank those companies, government agencies, and universityresearchers that contributed information for this report.SCOPE AND FORMATThis report discusses the values of the North American, European, Far Eastern and Rest-of-World

Sales(dollars) and shipments (units) for 2011, 2012, and 2017 are provided, with five-year cumulativeaverage growth rates (CAGR) calculated for the period 2012 to 2017.Fuel cell applications are described and analyzed. The following applications are considered:Combined heat and power (CHP) sectors are:• Residential.• Commercial.• Industrial.Auxiliary power unit (APU) sectors are:• Residential/Commercial.• Recreational Vehicles.• Signage.• Anti-idling.• Aircraft.• Military.Emergency sectors are:• Residential/Commercial (including uninterruptible power systems).• Military.• Police/Emergency.Residential, commercial, and military fuel cell companies are listed and detailed profiles have beenprepared.METHODOLOGYAn in-depth analysis of technical and business literature and published dissertations; a review ofthe history of the technologies involved; and interviews with industry experts, companyrepresentatives, federal government researchers and university scientists provide an assessmentof the outlook for alternative electrical power storage. Other information sources include productliterature from suppliers, scientific references, conferences and patent searches.Both primary and secondary research methodologies were used in preparing this report, which isbased on interviews with commercial and government sources, literature reviews, and patentexaminations. Throughout the report, past market data is expressed in current dollars, andestimates and projections are in constant 2012 dollars.Most market summaries are based on a consensus scenario that assumes no unanticipatedtechnical advances and no unexpected legislation. When appropriate, several developmentalmarkets are characterized in pessimistic, consensus and optimistic scenarios. Totals are roundedto the nearest million dollars. When appropriate, information from previously published sources isidentified to allow a more detailed examination by clients.
  4. 4. INFORMATION SOURCESMarket assumptions used in this report include those based on updates of material from an earlierversion of this analysis as well as from BCC Research studies; this report’s author prepared thesestudies as well. He also edited several relevant newsletters including Fuel Cell Industry Report.Although many segments of the industry are well documented, much of this information is basedon estimates, not hard facts. The distinction between these estimates and hard facts can be vital,and wherever possible, sources are identified.ANALYST CREDENTIALSThis report’s project analyst, Donald Saxman, edited BCC Research’s Fuel Cell Industry Reportnewsletter and has founded several other BCC newsletters. Mr. Saxman has more than 28 yearsof experience in market analysis, technical writing and newsletter editing. Since 1983, he hasoperated as a technical market consultant and subcontractor to BCC Research, and in thiscapacity he has prepared more than 80 technology market research reports including many thatcover battery technology and battery markets. His previous experience includes supervision of aquality-control laboratory at a major secondary lead refinery, experience as an analytical chemistat a hazardous waste testing service, product assurance manager for a space station life-support-system project, and an information technology business analyst and project manager.Get your copy of this report @http://www.reportsnreports.com/reports/205876-fuel-cells-for-residential-commercial-and-military-power.htmlMajor points covered in Table of Contents of this report includeChapter- 1: IntroductionStudy Goals And ObjectivesReasons For Doing The StudyIntended AudienceScope And FormatMethodologyInformation SourcesAnalyst CredentialsRelated ReportsBcc On-Line ServicesDisclaimerChapter- 2: SummaryTable Summary : Global Market Summary By Fuel Cell Type, Consensus Scenario, Through 2017
