DataCenterCummins and Ceres Power will collaborate to develop fuel cell power generation technology for potential use in data centers under a $4.9 million contract awarded by the Energy Department.

The partnership seeks to create a modular solid oxide fuel cell system in efforts to increase the efficiency of electrical systems by at least 60 percent and support distributed power applications up to 100 kilowatts, Ceres Power said Thursday.

“This is a very exciting opportunity for Ceres Power to work with Cummins and the U.S. DOE to address the rapidly growing market for cleaner distributed power for data centres and other commercial applications,” said Phil Caldwell, Ceres Power CEO.

The companies will also collaborate with University of Connecticut and the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory to test the resulting fuel cell technology for data center and combined heat and power applications.

Ceres Power has developed a fuel cell technology called Steel Cell that the company believes can help data centers reduce energy consumption by more than 20 percent and carbon footprint by as much as 49 percent.
