The SOFC group at Forschungszentrum Juelich has assembled and tested more than 220 SOFC stacks during the last 10 years, rated between 100 W and 15 kW. The topics of high-performance materials, corrosion, materials compatibility, and cost-effectiveness, including manufacturing processes, etc., are being continuously addressed. Large stacks of 5 kW and above have been operated since 2002 and have also been successfully delivered to other institutions. In parallel, lightweight stacks have been developed in the "cassette" design line for SOFC-APU. Several 1-20 kW SOFC laboratory systems are in preparation.
