UCI Thermal Energy Storage Tower
UCI Thermal Energy Storage Tower is the world’s first commercial hydrogen fuel cell power plant. Situated near Bren Events Center on campus, this groundbreaking initiative uses methane from Anaheim Natural Gas pipeline to produce clean and renewable electricity while also producing hydrogen for vehicles that use fuel cells.
This project holds great national significance as it marks the first commercially operated hydrogen fuel cell power plant in the US. This landmark represents an important step toward creating cleaner transportation fuel and an economy-transforming technology.
UCI’s current microgrid portfolio comprises electric vehicle charging, hydrogen fueling for fuel cell vehicles, two-axis tracking concentrated solar PV systems, building retrofits and demand response services. UCI substation transformers do not impose capacity limitations that impede performance; this allows more flexibility within the system to help meet local capacity constraints on distributed energy resources.

At nighttime across campus, the Student Center is lit in pink to show support for individuals battling this illness and to remind people about early detection and screening as an important means to increase survival rates.
