The 59-MW Gyeonggi Green Energy fuel cell park (Figure 3) in South Korea’s Hwasung City—one of the world’s largest fuel cell facilities—began operation in February. The five-acre facility built by South Korea’s largest private energy producer, POSCO Energy, consists of 21 FuelCell Energy DFC3000 power plants rated at 2.8 MW each to provide continuous baseload power to the power-strapped South Korean grid and heat for a district heating system.

Completion of the project—begun in November 2012—took only 13 months, according to project developers. And though it is the first fuel cell project of its scale for stationary power, several more are in the pipeline, evidence of an emerging trend for the fledgling alternative energy source.

For those bitching about how energy costs are too high, I'd rather have high prices I have to watch over than cheap crap that doesn't work most of the time. And guess what: Sooner or later we'll have to choose between cheap and iffy and costly and there.

I wonder where they get their hydrogen from. Proton exchange membrane fuel cells need hydrogen at the anode.
One of the common sources of hydrogen is electrolysis. But of course that doesn't make much sense.
The second common source is methane steam reformation. Maybe that is it . . .
