The Delaware-Red Lion Substation Bloom Energy Fuel Cell System is a 27,000kW energy storage project located in New Castle, Delaware, US.

The electro-chemical battery energy storage project uses fuel cells as its storage technology. The project was commissioned in 2014.


The Delaware-Red Lion Substation Bloom Energy Fuel Cell System was developed by Bloom Energy. The project is owned by Delmarva Power & Light (100%), a subsidiary of Pepco Holdings.

The key application of the project is on-site power.

Contractors involved

Bloom Energy and Delmarva Power & Light have delivered the battery energy storage project.

Additional information

The site comprises 135 refrigerator-size Bloom Energy servers—which are grouped in clusters in an open yard-along with a natural gas regulation station and stormwater management systems. The “Bloom boxes” installed on the site to generate power reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 40% to 100% compared with the U.S. grid and virtually eliminate emissions of sulfur oxide, nitrous oxide and other harmful smog-forming particulates.
