Gillette Stadium receives 2 MW fuel cell servers

The Kraft Group announced July 27 that they are implementing fuel cell technology at Gillette Stadium that will supply nearly 50% of its energy needs and reduce nearly 1,500 metric tons of CO2 per year.

Gillette Stadium, located in Foxborough, Mass., and home to the New England Patriots and New England Revolution, received fuel cell servers from Bloom Energy that will provide 2 MW of power to the 65,878-seat stadium. The servers are made of solid oxide fuel cells and generate electricity without combustion using an electrochemical process.

“Good business and sustainability go hand in hand,” Jim Nolan, COO of Gillette Stadium, said in a statement. “The addition of Bloom Energy Servers provides power that is not only clean, but also reliable and always-on for stadium-goers and the community.”

The Bloom Energy Servers were installed in a microgrid-ready configuration that allows for increased resiliency in the case of outages. The installation of this system follows other clean energy and energy efficiency measures that the Kraft Group implemented at their locations, including 500 kW of combined heat and power at Gillette Stadium and 1 MW of solar panels throughout Patriot Place.
