For example, installer & agrave; photovoltaic panels and fuel cell based systems.

Now comes the news that Ferrari has taken another step forward in its sustainability journey; thanks to the installation of a new 1 MW solid oxide fuel cell system at the Maranello plants.


This system is was made by Bloom Energy and the installation took place; concluded a few days ago. Based on the 2021 energy needs data, the new Fuel Cell plant will be to cover 5% of the necessary energy to support the business productive. All this, obviously reducing fuel consumption and emissions.

Compared to 1 MW produced by CHP (Combined Heat and Power) cogeneration systems, the gas requirement of the fuel cell system & egrave; in fact lower by about 20% with a considerable energy saving.

The new plant not only & egrave; very efficient but & egrave; also flexible. Indeed, & egrave; You can choose between different energy sources : hydrogen, natural gas, biomethane or a combination of them. To all this is added the reduction, compared to equivalent systems, of over 99% of the pollution that causes the formation of smog and particulate matter. On this important news, Benedetto Vigna , CEO of Ferrari, declared:

Ferrari & egrave; more than ever focused on becoming carbon neutral by 2030, through the adoption of cutting-edge technologies and a scientific approach that are part of our DNA. We are excited to collaborate with Bloom Energy, given the strong common commitment to a decarbonization process, and proud that their first project in Europe has been realized with us.
