Fuel cells to power entire residential area

Langweid am Lech is the first-ever place in Germany where residential fuel cells will meet all energy needs. Regional energy utility Erdgas Schwaben, based in Augsburg, has joined forces with developer Michael Dumberger and heating system supplier Viessmann to install Panasonic fuel cells in each of the 62 duplex and row houses under construction in a new residential zone. Another 43 will reportedly be part of a similar project in Mering. During the groundbreaking ceremony in Langweid last July, Gerhard Failer, sales manager at Dumberger, said that “fuel cells are perfect for supplying our highly insulated buildings with safe and inexpensive heat and power.” And his boss, Michael Dumberger, added, “We don’t build for ourselves but for generations to come.”
