Fuel Cell Power Model case study data

This page contains case study data for the Fuel Cell Power (FCPower) Model include building energy load profiles and solar / wind resource profiles for US cities in eight climate zones.

The Fuel Cell Power (FCPower) Model is a financial tool for analyzing high-temperature, fuel cell-based tri-generation systems. It uses a discounted cash flow rate of return methodology to determine the cost of delivered energy, and it quantifies energy inputs / outputs and greenhouse gas emissions.

The web page contains a map to identify a climate zone and drop-down menus to narrow the results. After selecting from the drop-down menus, click the ‘Find Profile’ button to generate links to Microsoft Excel files that can be downloaded and imported into the FCPower Model.

These data were developed by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory‘s Electricity, Resources, and Building Systems Integration Center for the U.S. Department of Energy‘s Building Technologies Program.
