technology makes use of natural gas as the source for hydrogen in a fuel cell which combines it with oxygen to generate electricity.
In 2014, Asia-Pacific was the largest regional market for planar SOFC
and accounted for a market share, by value, of 38.
systems operating on coal syngas, natural gas or biogas can generate clean power with virtually zero pollutants and significant reductions in greenhouse gas emissions, particularly when configured for combined heat and power.
In the pressurized hybrid system, air pressurized by the MGT's compressor is supplied to SOFCs
and used as oxidant; then the thermal energy and pressure of the high-temperature exhaust gas from the SOFC
module are transferred to the MGT to be used, together with the unreacted portion of the gas, to produce electricity.
The program will focus on advancing 500 Watt to 1,000 Watt SOFC
power systems that operate on high-performance liquid fuels, including alternative bio-derived fuels such as butanol and bio-diesel.
systems offer the opportunity to meet energy needs by producing electricity cleanly and quietly.
SECA brings together members of the US government, industry and scientific community to develop SOFC
Using an EV equipped with nickel-metal hydride batteries for comparison, Botti estimates that Delphi's SOFC
powertrain would be 329 kg lighter (560 kg vs.
GTI will identify potential applications and develop technical specifications for military else of SOFC
technology, with emphasis on ruggedness and the use of currently available logistic fuels.
The operating temperature of the conventional SOFC
is around 1,000 C so other materials used in conjunction with the battery tend to deteriorate quickly.
power plant enables to reduce greenhouse gases by more than 40-60% compared to conventional combustion process.

Market 2015-2019" report to their offering.
