Bloom Energy Corporation Key Developments
The Stop & Shop Supermarket Company LLC Installs Bloom Energy Fuel Cell in Mt. Vernon, New York Supermarket
Feb 24 15
The Stop & Shop Supermarket Company LLC, a division of Ahold USA, announced that a Bloom Energy fuel cell will power the company's Mt. Vernon, New York store. The 250 kW system at Stop & Shop in Mt. Vernon will generate more than 2 million kWh each year, resulting in carbon reductions of more than 700,000 lbs. of CO2 annually. Bloom Energy's solid oxide fuel cell converts fuel into electricity through a highly efficient electrochemical process, instead of combustion, to provide on-site, clean and reliable power. These fuel cell projects are the latest addition to Stop & Shop's clean and renewable energy portfolio that also includes solar panel systems on the roofs on 38 of its stores, capable of generating 9.5 million kWh each year. As part of its Better Neighbor Promise to care for the environment, Stop & Shop has a goal to reduce its carbon footprint by 20% by 2015 using 2008 as a baseline. This project supports the company's carbon reduction goals and continues to deliver electricity even through grid outages, like those experienced in the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy. Stop & Shop is also committed to building energy efficient and sustainable stores. It has a goal to reach Zero waste by the year 2020. This means that at least 90% of the waste generated by its stores will be diverted from landfills. Support for this project was provided by the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority.
