  -- Highly efficient and environmentally friendly power generation 
  -- Adequate to power approximately 500 German homes for one year 

DRESDEN, Germany, Oct. 8, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- FuelCell Energy Solutions
GmbH, a provider of ultra-clean, efficient and reliable fuel cell power plants,
today announced the delivery of its first German manufactured fuel cell power
plant to the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) office complex
that is being constructed by BAM Deutschland AG in Berlin, Germany. A delivery
ceremony is being held at the BMBF construction site at 10 am Central European
Summer Time (CEST) on October 8. FuelCell Energy Solutions is managing the
installation of the power plant and commissioning is expected in mid-2014 once
construction of the office complex nears completion. 

'Our customers purchase fuel cell power plants to solve their power generation
challenges and meet their sustainability goals,' said Chip Bottone, President
and Chief Executive Officer FuelCell Energy, Inc. and Managing Director,
FuelCell Energy Solutions GmbH. 'We are excited to demonstrate to the
marketplace the many attributes of ultra-clean, efficient and reliable power
generation from stationary fuel cell power plants made right here in Germany.' 

FuelCell Energy Solutions is installing the power plant inside the BMBF complex
as the virtual absence of pollutants, quiet operation and lack of vibrations
enables fuel cell power plants to be located in populated areas. The power
plant is configured for combined heat and power to enhance efficiency and the
high quality heat will be used to generate steam for facility heating and
absorption chilling. The fuel cell power plant will provide approximately 40
percent of the electrical needs and 20 percent of the thermal needs of the
facility. 

'We provide a comprehensive power generation solution including installation of
the power plant combined with operation and maintenance under multi-year
service agreements,' said Andreas Frommel, Vice President Commercial and
Business Development, FuelCell Energy Solutions GmbH. 'We strive to make it
easy for our customers to benefit from the many attributes of fuel cell power
plants while contracting the operation and maintenance to us.' 

FuelCell Energy Solutions Direct FuelCell(r) power plants generate electricity
and usable high quality heat utilizing an electrochemical reaction that emits
virtually no pollutants. Avoiding the emission of nitrogen oxide (NOx), sulfur
oxide (Sox) and particulate matter (PM10) supports clean air regulations and
benefits public health. The high efficiency of the fuel cell power generation
process reduces fuel costs and carbon emissions, and producing both electricity
and heat from the same unit of fuel drives economics while simultaneously
promoting sustainability. Fuel cells can achieve up to 90 percent efficiency
when configured to use the high quality heat generated by the power plant in a
combined heat & power (CHP) mode. 

FCES, with its German manufacturing base, is the sales, manufacturing and
service business for the European Served Area for FuelCell Energy, Inc. FCES is
a joint venture between Fraunhofer IKTS Fraunhofer IKTS and FuelCell Energy
(Nasdaq:FCEL).
